Our Experience With This Preschool Math Shape Game

My son has been enjoying math games lately especially if they involve dominoes, dice, or truffula trees. I wanted to create a new dice game that practiced shapes and allowed for a bit of creative expression.

I asked Aiden if he wanted to use paper shapes or felt shape. He chose felt. Here’s how to set this game up.

This was Aiden’s “finished” piece. He added the large green square on the right towards the end. Notice how it hangs off the background felt. {There are no rules to process based art.}

If you are using paper instead of felt, it might help to glue down the shapes as you add them. Felt sticks to felt so it’s less likely the shapes will move around. Paper is another story – especially as you add more and more shapes.
