When the Weather Outside is Friiightning!

Hi this is Terri Borman author of “Shapes Go to School.”  I am also a child care provider and when I cannot take the children outside due to bad weather I try to find learning activities I can do with the children inside.  Today I am going to show you how to have an indoor treasure shape hunt by hiding shapes around the house.


STEP 1.) Cut out shapes from foam squares available from any craft store.


STEP 2.) Hide the shapes around the house.

STEP 3.) Draw a treasure map.
