Pumpkin in Shadow

For children to guess sizes and shapes to practice recognition skills

In this activity, children learn to guess sizes and freeform shapes that are a bit more difficult than basic shapes. Learning shapes helps children to pay attention to details and practice recognition skills that are useful for learning other things such as numbers, letters and symbols. Let’s do this.
