Sticks and Shapes

 Here's an activity which  can  help kids get excited about shapes!

 You will need  some plastic  straws or, toothpicks, matchsticks/crafts sticks. And then get your child create shapes and pictures out of them. This  activity could be  used with 7-year-olds and upwards.

  Through this activity,  children will learn how two or more geometrical shapes can be used together to form a new geometrical shape or design.

This activity helps children improve hand eye coordination and lays and a great foundation for mastering geometrical shapes.

Older children will be able to create 3D shapes. You could also extend this activity by having your children tessellate the geometrical shapes they create.


Well, this activity kept my children busy for a good hour or so.
