Build A Shape Cards

As a teacher I’ve organized activities for my students to explore 2 dimensional and           3 dimensional shapes using toothpicks and marshmallows.  I decided to create this same activity for my children with Play-Doh, because they love to play with Play-Doh and toothpicks.  Since they are younger than my students I made cards to help them build 2D and 3D shapes.

How To make, Build A Shape Cards

  • Materials
    • Index cards or card stock
    • Markers
    • Black Sharpie
    • Ruler
    • Laminating machine or clear packing tape
    • Play-Doh
    • Toothpicks
  • Instructions
    1. Decide which 2D & 3D shapes you will draw.
    2. Title each card with the shape name and type.
    3. Draw a picture of the shape on the card.
    4. Draw dots and lines to represent the amount of toothpicks and Play-Doh balls needed.
    5. Laminate the cards.  If you don’t have a laminating machine use clear packing tape to cover the cards.
