Just like my previos post of Cut and Paste Shape Puzzle of a Monkey. Here is a Cut and Paste Shape Puzzle of a Bear. The cute looking bear is made of 12 circles, 2 ovals, and 1 triangle.

WHAT ARE CUT AND PASTE – SHAPE CRAFTS?

Shape’s craft is a fun way of introducing shapes to kids. Using this easy craft, children can build their own animals using variety of shapes. Overlaying the shapes on one another or beside each other can result in a variety of amazing figures. With this DIY not only they understand shapes but also differentiate among variety of shapes and hence developing their cognitive and analytical skills.

WHAT DO THESE PRINTABLE CONSISTS OF?

The bundled printable has 3-4 sheets. They consists of:

  • the colourful animal (to be used as hint for kids)- Sheet 1
  • silhouette of the animal figure- Sheet 2
  • the different shapes to be cut – Sheet 3 (and 4)

Note : The sheet 1 animal has to be used as reference only. It is a hint for the child if the child is stuck at some point.

WHAT DO YOU REQUIRE?

Materials required:

  • Colour printer and A4 sheets or Card Stock
  • A pair of scissors
  • Glue [optional]
  • Base Paper / Chart [optional]

HOW TO USE THE PRINTABLE?

Step 1 – Once purchased and downloaded, you can print these PDFs using any colour printer on A4 size sheets. These sheets and shapes are easy to be carried also.

Step 2 – With the help of a pair of scissors, now cut the shapes from sheet 3 & 4.

Step 3 – Once your kids are ready, explain them about this new challenging activity. You can say, “hey, today let’s see how, with simple shapes of circles, triangles, squares and rectangles we will create amazing animals out of them.”

Step 4 – Take Sheet 1 of any of your preferred set and now show it to your kid. In case if he/she is not aware of the animal, explain about this animal to him/her, may be examples he has seen or has heard in rhymes/songs/stories. [This will help kids to relate better].

Step 5 – Now give your kids Sheet 2, and ask them to place the cut shapes and match them with the dotted shapes and try to replicate the Sheet 1 figure.

Step 6 – Now whenever a child gets stuck somewhere, you can show him/her the original Sheet 1 picture again, and ask them to try again now.
