What can you learn?
Shapes, colors, and develop creativity
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.
