Learning about Shapes


Fun to make, and useful too!

Shapes Box

Kids can explore the shapes in the box and even create new things using their own ideas!

The kids can learn about shapes by combining them together, or even make objects like cars or people.

Kids have fun with crafts.
Crafts are fun




Shapes Box

Materials List

old cardboard boxes





  1. Use the scissors to cut shapes out of cardboard boxes.  Regular shapes work best (triangles, squares, circles).  Make lots of shapes with different sizes.
  2. Color the shapes with paints.
  3. Give a box full of shapes to kids and let them have fun.



  1. Old cereal boxes work well.
  2. Store the shapes in a box covered with colorful pictures or paper.
  3. Have the children help make or paint the shapes.
  4. Different boxes can have different themes (e.g. weather shapes, animal shapes).
