Geometric Builders
An Activity for Preschoolers:
Children explore geometric shapes using simple, reusable materials.


Before You Begin:
Gather materials needed: colored craft sticks, paper, markers, hook and loop circles.


Activity Goals:
  • To develop descriptive language and reasoning skills.

    Furthermore:
    When the students have completed their self-portrait figurines, you may display the collection of figurines and review the words that students used to describe themselves as well as discuss the unique design of each figurine.




  • Step 1.
    Stick a hook circle to one end of each craft stick and a loop circle to the other end of each craft stick.
    Step 2.
    On sheets of paper, draw and label a geometric shape. Each sheet should have only one shape. Suggested shapes include square, rectangle, triangle, octagon, hexagon and pentagon. Optional: Laminate each sheet for repeated use.
    Step 3.
    Give a shape pattern and some hook and loop craft sticks to the children. Have them recreate the shape using their craft sticks.
    Step 4.
    Adapt this activity to recreate numbers, letters or other patterns.
