A ‘pass the parcel’ set-up with shape symbols in each layer
Range of matching 2D shapes
The children sit in a circle.
In the middle of the circle an adult places all the 2D shapes so the children can see them clearly.
Play ‘Pass the parcel’. Each time the music stops and a child unwraps a layer to reveal a shape chard, the child has to find the matching shape from the middle of the circle.
At the end of the game, count all the shapes and see who has the most!
