Shape Matching Busy Bag Activity

A HUGE thank you to our friend Karyn at Teach Beside Me for guest posting today!  We are big fans of Karyn and her blog, and are SO happy to have her sharing with us.

I am so happy to have the chance to guest post on the Sugar Aunts today. They were kind enough to guest post for me when I had my baby and I wanted to return the favor! My name is Karyn and I blog over at Teach Beside Me . I am a homeschool mom of 4 kids and love to blog about hands-on learning, home education, and play over at my site.

I have been trying to think of activities to keep my 3-year-old son busy lately. He is a busy little guy and always wants to be involved in what we are doing in our homeschool. I typically have little busy-bag activities for him to do and needed to add in some new ones. We have lots of pipe cleaners so I decided to make a pipe cleaner shape matching activity. I created some simple pictures for him to use to create shapes with pipe cleaners or yarn. You could really do this with any shapes, but I thought it would be fun to make it a more creative picture with nature scenes.

I made several different printable pages that can be used in a busy bag or just for anytime. See below to download a free copy of these activities.

We tried doing the activities with yarn as well and it is a little easier to shape them for younger kids.
