Shapes Craft for Tiny Toddlers

So, today I gave my little Trayaksh (a.k.a Coco) these colourful cutouts of different basic shapes I had from my last year’s kids math craft’s workshop and asked him what does he want to make out of them? He answered – “a Castle”.

Our Castle

So, here we are with our glittery Castle using all kinds of basic shapes.

Using basic shapes these are some fun activities which we can make our toddlers do and unleash their creativity.

Trust me you will be surprised to see what they can do and what their little super minds are capable of. I was taken aback when my son asked to put clouds with cotton and when he asked me to put glue lines on the tower of the castle for decoration.

…and some more Castles

Here are few other imaginations of kids for castles just using basic shapes.
