Categories: , Tags: , ,


This Block Shadows Busy Bag idea is a fun way to work on math for preschoolers. This activity is a simple and first step to area and perimeter that kids will learn about later as they grow. Preschoolers will have fun trying to figure out how many blocks will fit inside the shadow. This busy bag is easy to put together and only requires a few things to get set up and start playing.

See the Block Shadows Busy Bag blog post to learn more about preparing this activity.
