Colors and Shapes Matching Manipulatives for Little Ones

This fast and easy craft makes a fun matching game for little ones learning colors and shapes.

You will need....

-Microwave Cupcake Tray (I got mine at a thrift store for $1)
-Foam sheets in 6 colors (Again only a buck, this time from Dollar Tree)
-Small Drinking Glass -that fits inside cupcake holes
-Crazy Glue or Hot Glue
-Black Marker

1.)  Take the glass and trace a circle onto foam

2.)  Cut circles.  Write the color name on each circle.

3.)  Glue circles into cupcake holder.  I went with the traditional rainbow ROY G BIV

4.)  Cut out shapes.  I did triangles, squares, rectangles, and circles.  

There you have it!  My Little Miss loves to match the colors, say shape names, and most importantly, dump everything out all over ;).  Hope your little ones enjoy it just as much.
