My little guy is terribly ill and my tot is just busting at the seems to do anything, but self occupy. She was in desperate need of an activity that she could do on her own while I rocked her baby brother nearby. All that I was required of was conversation on shapes and a little quality time.
Miss Grace knows most of her shapes, but she loves to sort objects so this was a blast for her. If you don’t have foam shapes like we used you could always cut shapes out of paper.
