This week’s Sharing Shapes activity is inspired by Should I Share My Ice Cream? (An Elephant and Piggie Book)
Materials for Piggy and Elephant Sharing Shapes Activity:
- Construction paper Or Card Stock
- Glue Sticks
- Shapes Dice
Instructions for Piggy and Elephant Sharing Shapes Activity:
- Cut out the shapes you need to make Piggie and Elephant. This is a good time for the kids to practice their scissor skills. We have a Piggie Template and an Elephant Template that you can use.
- Put all the shapes in the center of the table.
- Have the kids roll the dice. The twist on this game is that the child shares the shape with another child. So if Justin is rolling the Elephant dice and Justin gets the trunk. He takes that shape and shares it with someone else.
- Have the children pay attention to what the other players need to complete their character.
- Once all the children have all the shapes they need to complete Piggie or Elephant, glue the shapes to make the characters.
- Add details with the markers.
- To add a bit of sweetness have the players act out their characters sharing or complimenting each other.
