Friday Five: Fall Shape Art

by heather | November 09, 2012 | 0 Comment

We know your KneeBouncers have a great time with our online shape games for babies, toddlers and preschoolers -- but in today's Friday Five, we're sharing ways to take the tech out of shape fun. Creating art with shapes is a great way to introduce early mathematical concepts to your child (hello, early geometry) while fostering creativity. Happy Fall!

FallShapesTurkey-NoTimeforFlashCards

Shape Turkey from No Time for Flash Cards
Love this idea from No Time for Flash Cards. Made out of easy shapes like hearts, ovals, squares and triangles. No fancy scissor maneuvering required.

Marshmallow Tree Painting
Who says you can't play with your food? Use marshmallows as 'stamps' for this fun, free-form tree and learn how circles can make other shapes. Thanks to 4tunate.net for the idea!

Paper-Apple-Garland1

Paper Apple Garland
This would look great in any kid space. Just use clotheslines and construction paper circles to create an apple garland. Thanksgiving decor, maybe? Found this idea on Parents.com. {PS: Don't forget the squirmy worm!}

PaperRollPumpkin

Paper Roll Pumpkin
Turn rectangular strips into circles and then make a pumpkin. As easy as pumpkin pie. What a fun idea from Little Family Fun!

Owl Shape Craft
Truth be told, this is a year-round craft. But just imagine this little guy in fall colors. All you need to do is layer circles and triangles. This great idea is courtesy of Kids Crafts Made Easy.
