Muffin Tin Monday - Shape Searcher

Pin It now! Dawson is totally obsessed with Blue's Clues and there is an episode called Shape Searchers where they find different shapes. Yesterday morning he asked me if I would play Shape Searchers with him. Of course I wanted to, so I grabbed his puzzle with the shapes on it, took the pieces off and we tried to find shapes around the house that matched the shapes that we had. It was really fun and Dawson found a lot of different shapes.

Since we had such a good time playing Shape Searchers I decided to make a muffin tin lunch with foods of different shapes and have Dawson match up the shapes with his puzzle pieces. Here is what I came up with:

triangle (pizza), circles (zucchini chips), oval (watermelon)
squares (cheez-its), trapezoid (cheese bread), rectangle (graham cracker w/peanut butter)

Then I asked Dawson to match up his puzzle pieces with the different shapes that he saw. He thought it was a lot of fun and he got them all right! :)

Yay Dawson!! :)

He ate pretty well and actually ate his zucchini chips first and even asked for seconds, that made me happy. :)

To see what others did for Muffin Tin Monday this week head on over and visit Muffin Tin Mom.
