Easy Funny Faces Activity
Source: PBS KIDS
Art projects are a great opportunity to explore shapes. Cut out various sizes of circles, squares, triangles and rectangles from construction paper. Using a paper plate as the face, have your child glue on the different shapes to form the eyes, ears, mouth and nose. You can make a face that is all triangles, all circles, or all squares, or a mix-and-match face that uses different shapes. Say the names of the shapes as you glue them together. This is also a fun way to make jack-o-lanterns at Halloween!
