Shape Puzzle with Foam Stickers

I placed the shape stickers on the table next to the paper. Then I invited my toddler to peel the backs of the stickers and match them to their spot on the paper. She immediately knew exactly what to do and got started.

Peeling stickers is a great fine motor activity for toddlers!

It was a bit of a challenge for her to peel the backs off of the stickers, but not so much so that she got frustrated. It was the perfect fine motor exercise for her.

She then looked for the spot to place the sticker down and stuck it to the paper. This was a great way to practice eye-hand coordination.


While she did the puzzle, I made a point to say the name of each shape so that she could begin to identify them by name.

She enjoyed it so much that she immediately asked me to make another one for her!
