Mouse Shapes Activity

This is an older post but my daughter loved doing it, so I thought I would share it with you all.

I love the book Mouse Paints so when I saw Mouse Shapes I knew I had to get it.  Emily loves working with shapes so I decided to do an activity with her from the book. It took a little longer to cut all the shapes the night before but I was watching The Bachelor (yes, I admit it) so I was fine.

I read the book to her and we talked about all the shapes on the pages.  Next I asked her to put the shapes I had cut out into groups.  Kids love to sort things at this age.  We started with the first page and made a house using a square and a triangle.  Next she made a tree using a triangle and a short rectangle.  She continued making the pictures by using the shapes that matched the pictures in the book.
