Shape flashcards

Looking for a fun way to explain sides, vertices and shapes? Why not try these “shape flashcards”? First do a shape review on a white board or piece of paper. Then give your child a few index cards and some tooth picks. Have them make flashcards for each of the shapes.

First glue the toothpicks to the cards to form the shape. We found that running a small bead of white glue on the toothpick, then placing it on the card worked best.

After they make the shapes with the toothpicks have them label each card with the information you had discussed.
