Parent Made Developmental Toys: Integrating Parenting, Self-Esteem, Literacy & Fun
Stencils and Activities More additions to your writing bin!

Directions to make STENCILS:
1. Collect a number of plastic lids from coffee cans, yogurt containers, pringles lids, etc.

2. Trace carefully a shape on the lid.

3. Cut it out with sharp scissors. (Don't overcut the corners but do make them sharp.)

4. Here are some shape names to stimulate the children to "feel" the shape. You might want to write them in small letters on the plastic with permanent marker.

This is a long list: what shapes do your children need to know?
circle rectangle diamond or rhombus
oval triangle equilateral triangle
square obtuse and acute triangle isosceles triangle
isosceles right triangle right triangle,
regular and irregular polygon pentagon
hexagon octagon decagon
