Try one of these activities:

  1. Go on a shape hunt around the home. Which shape do you see the most?
  2. Collect some 3D shapes- How can you sort them? Can you stack them to make towers? Which 3D shape isn’t good for stacking? Look at pictures of palaces/ cities. What 3D shapes can you see? Can you make your own buildings/ cities using wooden blocks (or similar)?
  3. Can you make these shapes with lego/ play dough?
  4. Can you paint/decorate any empty boxes you have of these shapes? You could create a 3D shape city.

Choose some 3D shapes for printing with paint. You could use wooden blocks or empty boxes. What 2D shapes do they make on the paper? Can you make a tower or building picture?
