I’ve been working with Little Brother on identifying some basic shapes and I thought this would be a good opportunity to use up the bag of fake snow that I used with our snowy sight words. Instead of cutting out shapes, I used the pieces from our Melissa & Doug Shape Puzzle.
Here’s what you’ll need: fake snow (or the real stuff, if you have it) and some pre-cut shapes (or puzzle pieces).

How To Play Hide and Seek Shapes
1. Put all the shapes into the ‘snow’ and then bury them underneath.
2. Let your little one ‘hunt’ for the shapes, making sure to repeat the shape names whenever he/she finds them!
Yes, this shapes activity did make a mess. But it took less than 5 minutes to vacuum up…which was totally worth it for the fun time that LB and I had
playing learning together!
