Tic Tac Toe (Identifying Shapes)

Flashcard games to play at home. This game helps make children familiar with all the basic shapes.

For this game you will need to draw a large TIC TAC TOE grid on a piece of paper and in each cell draw a unique shape

For one child:

  1. Lay out the shape cards in front of your child.
  2. Ask them to pick a card, identify the shape and point to the corresponding cell on the board.
  3. Ask them to think about an object that looks like that shape (for example: a kite looks like a diamond)
  4. Cross out the correct answers from the board.
  5. Game ends when all the numbers are crossed out!

For 2+ children:

  1. Split them up into teams! One is the (O) team and the other the (X) team.
  2. Follow steps 1 – 5 above.
  3. First team to get 3 in a row is the winner!

This flashcard game works best if followed by games on the Play School app.
