  1. Will this activity be good for a 5 year old that has autism?

      Yes, it would!

    I am a manager at Michaels. The foam shapes described above are indeed a seasonal item, and therefore cannot be found all year around so please do not be discouraged when you are unable to find them in our stores. We usually carry it for back to school but cannot guarantee that it will be sold every year. Great idea though! Very creative and excellent for the kiddos 🙂

  3. I was wondering what the official name was on the packaging of those shapes? I was in Michaels today and couldn’t find them. I asked someone and she had no idea what I was talking about. Thank you.

      The brand name is Art Minds. I wonder if they are just in certain Michaels stores. I cannot find them online anywhere!! But I know I just saw them at a Michaels store by me in Iowa. I’m sorry you didn’t have any luck finding them! Here is an alternative (with more shapes) found on Amazon:

      1. Thank you so much! I’ll look again.

        1. They are a seasonal item at Michael’s, only in with back to school items.

  4. I totally didn’t realize they sold those for such a good price! Thanks for sharing that detail. I love this modified shape sorter idea for toddlers. The preschool-focused shape sorters can be a little too challenge for the youngest crowd. Thanks!
