Spread the love

Basic shapes are related to the things we see in out daily life, like triangle sandwich, circle chapati, circle plate, rectangle clock etc. If the kids knows the basic shapes we can play many games without any effort. 

Best verbal game is riddle game with things inside the house. It goes like you are sitting in your room and is super bored and out of idea so you can start the game “Tell me a thing that is rectangle in shape and has horse in it” “Its a painting” or “tell me a things that is circle in shape and has numbers” ” its a clock”. These are some small activities which require shapes knowledge.

  1. Square
  2. Circle
  3. Rectangle
  4. Triangle
  5. Oval
  6. Semicircle
  7. Hexagon
  8. Trapezium
  9. Rombus
  10. Star
