Teach toddlers shapes quickly & easily with this fun Where’s the Triangle Shapes Toddler Activity! You’re definitely not going to want to miss it!
Another great week of Community Helpers! If you missed our color sorting fun from last week, you can find it here. Today’s post is another quick & easy activity idea for little kids. Check out this Where’s the Triangle Shapes Toddler Activity!
We are seriously loving everything about this month! It’s been a blast for both little kids to have their own fun activities to do. And of course let’s not forget about the fact that they can work together on some things too! It’s wonderful!
Like I said, I can’t even wrap my head around the fact that she’s a toddler now. Oh my!
This was the first time that baby girl got to experience Play-Doh, so of course that was more interesting than just about anything else. Lol…

If you’ve been around for a while, then you already know that we’re using Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for preschool homeschool and it’s been such a huge blessing to us. This month we were thrilled to receive one of the new Experience Toddler Curriculum kits too!
Experience Toddler is seriously all kinds of awesome! It’s the same Mother Goose Time that we all know and love, but for even littler kids!
Quick & Easy Where’s the Triangle Shapes Toddler Activity
Put shape links in the playdough. Fold the dough until the links are hidden. Set aside one triangle link to use for a matching game.
Freely explore and play with the dough. Show children that there are links hidden in the dough. Take turns poking at the playdough and pulling out the links.
Encourage children to dig out the links and see if any match the triangle link that you have in your hand. Name the various shapes as children dig out the links from the playdough.
Fine Motor Manipulation
Does the child poke fingers in the dough and touch or point at the items hidden in the dough?
Does the child find and remove the hidden objects in the playdough?
Does the child manipulate and play with the links that are variety of shapes?
When shown a shape, does the child find the matching shape link?
She is definitely all about having her very own toddler curriculum! And if you look closely at this week’s activity, you’ll see there are two skills listed. The first is of course fine motor and obviously shapes too.
Let’s talk about that for a minute! Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) made sure that we could assess our little kids regardless of their age and ability. You’ll see assessment information for both younger toddlers as well as older toddlers.
Because baby girl is only about 15 months old, I’ve been referencing what’s listed for younger toddlers. For this particular activity, that meant paying attention to whether or not she poked her fingers in the dough and touched or pointed at the items hidden in the dough.
I think we’ve pretty much got that handled. She was all about it! She also had quite an interest in the links and played with them long after I put the playdough away. Baby girl is for sure all kinds of inquisitive. I love it!
The toddler curriculum is nothing less than amazing. It’s just one more reason why we love Experience Early Learning!
I know for a fact that my little kids are learning exactly what they need to be! And because everything’s already taken care of for me, I can spend more of my time with the little guy and baby girl and less time worrying about planning and shopping!
