Extending this activity

  • -Read the book "I Spy Shapes in Art" by Lucy Micklethwait. Children love 'I Spy' activities and will enjoy finding the various shapes in the story.

    -Using colored chalk and a piece of paper, trace around the food shapes and discuss the drawings while the child eats.

Adjust for an older child

Ask your child to create his own shape lunch by asking him to suggest items for each shape. Suggestions might include a half sandwich (rectangle), banana slices (circle), cheese slices (square), or a sandwich cut like a diamond (rhombus).

Adjust for a younger child

As young children first experience shapes, allow opportunities for them to count the sides of each shape and talk about the attributes.
