Do you have a little one who is learning to identify and draw shapes? Need something to help them along that's both fun and convenient? ⭐️ Introducing Little Shapes by Little Lennons⭐️
These clip-and-go-anywhere, reusable shape trace and draw cards have endless possibilities to encourage and engage your child in shape-centered activities (and they fit conveniently in your bag!).
Each 4x5.5in laminated, dry-erase shape card can be used to recognize shapes, learn colors, trace each shape and learn to form the shape using objects around the house.
Use the provided dry erase utensil (you can choose a washable crayon, pencil or marker at checkout) to trace each shape (following on top of the lines), then erase it away with the provided felt eraser and use them again! Children are more willing to try when they know mistakes can easily be wiped away!
⭐️ Another fun way to use these cards is with objects like play doh, fun foam, pipe cleaners, Wiki sticks, beads, cheerios or any other maneuverable object that your child can use to create the form of each shape. Roll out some play doh and have your child follow the lines to form each shape, encouraging a new way of looking at shapes that will eventually lead to memorization of each form.
⭐️ Use the cards as flashcards on or off the ring to promote recognition or drawing, play "What's missing?" games, play “guess the shapes” games by describing each card as you hide it behind your back... You can even label items around the house by shape (place the rectangle on the table, the square on a couch pillow, the circle on a dinner plate, etc).
At the back of each pack are several blank cards that your child can use to practice drawing the shapes on his own within a designated space using the real-life pictures of shapes as a guide. I have also included a print out with "New Ways to Play" that gives parents some alternative uses for your Little Shapes cards, promoting open-ended play for home or on-the-go use. Care instructions are also printed and included.
Each pack of clip cards is held together by a 1.5in binder ring. This ring opens on a hinge, allowing the shape cards to easily be removed and allowing you to clip them to your purse or diaper bag for easy travel. Take the cards with you to a restaurant, church, grandma's house, in the car, on a plane... they go where you go and keep your child engaged and quiet! The cards are also great for keeping your little one busy during quiet time at home or while mom makes dinner, helps older kids with homework or tends to a new baby. They’re great for homeschool or the writing or math center in a preschool classroom too!
🍏 For busy book users, these fit right into your binder's canvas case! Take them anywhere you take your book as a secondary activity or pull out your canvas case and use it as a carrier 🙂
