Fun Day Monday

Hi there! Happy Monday to you. We have gone a bit fire engine mad in my childminding service at the moment so I thought I’d share an activity that we did last week.

This was a great activity for shape and colour recognition and a bit of listening too. If you and your little one want to make a fire engine picture you will need the following:

  • Red paper
  • Blue paper
  • White paper
  • Black paper
  • Yellow paper
  • White card
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick

and you will need to do the following:

  • Firstly cut out 1 x large red rectangle, 2 x small black circles, 1 x long black rectangle, 1 x white square, 1 x smaller black square, 1 x small blue rectangle, 6 x small white rectangles, 1 x yellow circle cut into a spiral
  • Now place the pieces out in front of your little one with a glue stick and the white card
  • Get your little one to find each shape at a time and stick them into place….. you can ask them what each shape represents and where on the picture it should go
