This game for studying the shapes will suit kids who adore playing with various household items, toy tools, and pieces of different board games. For children younger than three years old, make sure you use larger objects, but for older children you can use mosaic tiles, board game pieces, and other smaller objects. It is best to begin with simple geometric shapes, and gradually complicate the task. As a result, the child studies the shapes of the objects and the game helps them remember their names.

Gather all the different things you need and trace their shape with a colored marker on a sheet paper. Then put the objects in a bowl. Your child will select the items from the bowl one by one and try to match them to their outlines on the paper! The task will help develop visual and motor coordination, distinguish between flat and volumetric objects, concentrate their attention, and activate logical thinking. After they’ve started the task, print the task on shadows from Iqsha and paint over only the identical contours of pictures using a brush and water colors. The "Find a Shadow" quiz will help children recognize the shadows of objects.
