Do you have a busy bee toddler running around not interested in sitting still for more than two seconds? Yeah, so do I!
Toddlerhood is fun, they’re such interested little minds, taking in and exploring the world around them and it’s fun, and it’s adorable and it’s also messy, destructive and exhausting.
So if you need a few minutes of quiet and peace, keep reading on as I explain this printable shapes for toddlers activity book I created for my son.
Printable Shapes For Toddlers
The idea behind this shapes printable is that it won’t get destroyed in two seconds.
Here’s what I did to put it all together. It’s very simple I promise and I hope your toddler loves it as much as mine!
You will need;
A4 Paper- white
Hot Glue gun and hot glue sticks
How to put together your toddler’s printable shapes:
Start by printing your free printable shapes file. Use a colour printer as toddlers find colours fun and you can practice colours with them at the same time.
Cut out each of the large colour shapes and set them aside ready to laminate.
Using your laminator, proceed to laminate all sheets and set aside.
Carefully place the cut out shapes on the laminating sheets, leaving a little room between them. Once laminated, cut out the shapes making sure to leave a few millimeters between the shape outline and where you cut.
Finally, once you have laminated all sheets and shapes and finished your cutting, it’s time to assemble the book.
Place sheets in order, punch holes into each sheet and place in a folder you and your toddler can decorate together if you wish.
We used a clear plastic folder that, to be honest, didn’t last that long, so I had to buy a much durable folder later on. Lesson learned.
My son loved these printable shapes and since I have had two more sons who have too enjoyed this free printable shapes activity book.
It’s such a fun way to introduce basic shapes to your child/children as well as colours.
To make your life easier I have attached a PDF copy of the toddler shapes activity book and the shapes cut out PDF with instructions right here. Just click on the links to download your copy.
I hope your toddler enjoys this free printable shapes activity book as much as much as my kids have. Let me know in the comments or via email what you think. I always love hearing reader feedback!
