Shapes Board Game for Toddlers

Is your toddler working on shapes? Every day, 2.5-year-old N decides whether he’s interested in shapes, numbers or letters on that particular day, and we just go with it 🙂

Before Christmas, I made him his first board game {Winter Clothes Board Game for Toddlers}, but while he liked it, he didn’t really know what to do with the custom die, and it didn’t survive long.

Six weeks later, when we tried this Shapes Board Game for Toddlers, N quickly figured out how to roll the die and had a great time rolling over and over again, even after the game was officially “over” 😉

Are you looking for a fun way to practice and review shapes with your toddler or preschooler? This Shapes Board Game for Toddlers is a quick and easy way to make it more interesting. Includes a printable die template that's easy to put together.

(N was 2 years and 7 months old.)

    Tina, I love your simple toddler board games and matching games! They are not only perfect for my 3 y/o grandson but also the VERY smart 18 mo. old I care for! She knows by sight 6 colors and can count to 3 and I love encouraging her.
    Of course, you also feature awesome ideas and activities for my homeschooled 5 y/o granddaughter!

    1. Hi Debbie, thank you for your wonderful message! I’m so happy to hear that you get so much use out of my printables!

      Have a great day,
      -Tina
