Geometric shapes boat activity for kids, plus more boat-themed learning activities for children. Playful learning for preschool-aged children.
This week’s book pick for the Virtual Book Club for Kids is Toy Boat by Randall de Sève. You can also read Boats by Byron Barton for this week’s theme. I pulled out this simple geometric shapes activity. Anna loved it as much as once-upon-a-time preschooler Emma had! If you are looking for a felt board, we recommend our hoop felt board, or a simple travel felt board. I also have a more durable travel felt board for especially enthusiastic children.
Geometric Shapes Boat Activity for Kids – With Printable Template
I put together this new geometric shapes template for Emma to use with her felt shapes on her travel felt board back when now-seven-year-old Lily was a newborn! This boat printable was part of an entire series, and you can find other geometric shapes templates here. You can cut the shapes out of cardstock, or cut them out of felt.
We used felt – one of my favorite materials – for this activity, but cardstock does work just fine. And, as my photos witness, you can build without a felt board. Building right on the template is fine, too!
