Shape Place Mat

on September 11, 2012

Last Friday at Plum Play Group we taught our little ones about circles and squares using  shape place mats and cereal.  If you missed it, here’s how you can do it at home.


*Shape printouts – butterfly train

*Colored construction paper


*Laminating paper- I do my laminating at Lakeshore… 39 cents per foot!
*Organic whole grain cereal in the shape of circles & squares.  Like these…


  1. print the butterfly & train
  2. glue on construction paper
  3. laminate the place mat


  • Trace the circles with your child’s finger saying the name of each shape
  • Trace the circle cereal with your child’s finger
  • Help them match the circle cereal to the circles on the place mat
  • Repeat with the squares
