I know “Place on Trace” sounds confusing! But I could not come up with anything better for the Title of this post.
This activity is a fun way to play with the routine blocks, in a new way! It will also help in building up the problem solving skills and the imagination of a child.
To set up this activity, all you need is a marker pen, paper/cardboard and blocks from your kid’s toy collection.
I made different shapes/ patterns by putting different sized blocks together on the cardboard piece. Once done, I traced out the final outline of the shape. You need to be careful and hold the blocks together to form straight lines.
I first traced out everything with a pencil and then finalised it with a pen and ruler.
I made simple shapes on the first page and then some more difficult ones on the second sheet.
As soon as my little one came back from school, I showed him what I had prepared for him. Though he was a little confused in the beginning, but within a few moments, he got really interested!
It didn’t take him too long to get a hang of the whole thing. He was really happy with his creation !
Once finished, we started over again…. and again! It was fun!
