Seeing Shapes

Updated: Dec 29, 2021

Through a field trip or picture of an interesting building, children will be asked to look for hidden shapes (in the form of windows and decorations of the building). Aside from this, children will also learn the value of sorting through this exercise.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Suitable For: 4-5 years old

Estimated Time: > 30 mins

Environment: Indoors/Outdoors


  • Paper

  • Clipboard

  • Coloured Pens

  • Optional: Picture of an Interesting Building

Step 1:

Invite the children to look at the building outdoors or a picture indoors. Ask the children to identify the building (can work with some children with prior knowledge).

Step 2:

Ask the children what shape do they see in one of the building features (such as windows, etc.). Afterwards, ask them to draw what they see on a piece of paper. Parents can also help the children to create the drawing.

Step 3:

Continue to ask the children to look for other shapes and numerical elements (such as numbers and colours) to complete the picture.
