Who doesn’t love freshly baked cookies?! Although this activity doesn’t involve eating cookies, it’s still pretty fun and it helps little ones learn about shapes!
This Cookie Shapes Matching Activity is all about learning 2D shapes! Students will take a paper cookie and match it to the correct shape on the cookie sheet.
Cookie Shapes Activity:
Here’s how to set up the activity.
- Print the Cookie Sheet Shapes Matching Activity onto card stock paper. (You can get the printable at the bottom of this post.)
- Laminate the two pages.
- Cut out the cookie pieces.
- Add a piece of Velcro to the backside of the cookie pieces.
- Add the matching piece of Velcro to the shape on the cookie tray.
The goal of the activity is to have students match the cookie shape to the shape on the tray. If they are working with an adult, they can even say the name of the shape on the cookie tray before matching the cookie.
How to Use This Activity:
The Cookie Shapes Matching Activity can be used however you’d like! Here are a few of my suggestions:
- Add this activity to a math center
- Complete the activity with a small group
- Use this as a busy bag activity
If you don’t want to laminate the pages or use Velcro, here’s another way to use this activity:
- Print the pages onto copy paper.
- Have students cut out shapes to work on scissor skills.
- Glue the cookie onto the matching shape on the cookie sheet page.
This version of the activity would be good for independent work.
Great idea in connecting a math concept with something every kids enjoys–COOKIES!!
We counted the chocolate chips for comparison of which one had the most/less.
