What can you learn?

Shapes, colors, and develop creativity

Activity Elements:

Paper, scissors (adults only), glue

1          Cut out some shapes.  We try to provide a variety of shapes and colors.  If you don’t have construction paper, use regular printer paper, cardboard boxes, magazines, or even wrapping paper.

2          Go through the different shapes and colors with your children.  Show them how the shapes can fit together to make something different, like a train car.

3          You can color or draw your favorite train freight on some shapes. 

4          Make it into an art project by gluing or taping the pieces onto a piece of paper. You can also save the pieces to play another day.
