There are so much fun ways to learn about shapes. One of the way that my kids love the most is, playing with shape sorter toys.
I found out that shape sorting can also be done with many cute images.
Hence, I created this free printables, the Flowers and Bees Shape Sorting.
The bees are smiling cheerfully. So come buzz in and let’s print and play this fun activity!
The Flowers and Bees Shape Sorting
This printable features 6 shapes. That includes triangle shape, circle shape and square shape.
It also has a bit complex shapes such as pentagon, trapezoid and diamond shapes.
But don’t worry, usually toddlers and preschoolers will be having fun trying to fit those shapes!

This activity requires a bit of preparation. You might need these things in hands first :
First, you need to cut all 6 shapes pieces in the ‘Cut these’ page.
Then, you are ready!
Yep, that’s all it takes!
How to Use the Flowers and Bees Shape Sorting
First, arrange the pieces that you have cut, next to the matching bees and flowers.
Why make it easy?
Kids need some motivation. Without motivation, they will be most likely refuse to proceed with the activity.
Thus, for the first stage, you can put the shapes next to the matching bees and flowers as a hint.
Let your kids or your class fit them and paste the pieces.
Next, try to put all shape pieces at one side. Let your kids find the fitting piece by themselves.
While at it, you can introduce the shapes by letting them know ‘This is square’ or ‘Look, this is circle! Can you find which bee has circle shape?’
Most important of all, let them enjoy doing this, and surely they will ask for more!
