I wanted to introduce Sophia to some basic shapes and reinforce preschool skills for Audrey, especially since she still confuses the triangle and square. As a elementary school teacher, I remember students being much more engaged in a lesson when they could claim some sort of ownership to a project. In this case, I made the shapes without color and allowed Audrey to color them herself. Plus, it saved me a lot of money on expensive color ink:) Another plus is that both my 3 year old and 17 month old can benefit and learn from one set of printables!
Total price: about $0.75 can’t beat that!

Sophia mostly liked taking them on and off. She did like naming/pointing to the colors. We would say, “Sophia, where is the RED rectangle?”
