5 Materials to Create An Adorable Preschool Shape Train Town

Is there a train lover in your home?

There is in mine. Times Two if we include Hayes. Times four if you include my husband and I's new hobby. Either way, it is safe to say that this train town took up most of our Sunday morning...as it should. 

Let's Talk Shapes

By Kindergarten, children will be asked to model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes. This preschool activity begins this exploration with shapes. 

If you take a look around, many objects in our world resemble shapes. As Grey and I got creating, we began exploring how we can create with triangles. 

Materials for Preschool Shape Activity:

  • Cardboard rolls - I began collecting them a while back and it is incredible how fast they accumulate. I was thankful for this activity to clear some space! 
  • Painters tape - By now, you could tell that I use this for just about everything. 
  • Cardstock
  • Glue 
  • Scissors

Trees - rectangle and triangles

Mountains - cylinders and triangles 

Tunnel - cylinders

Here, we took 2 paper towel tubes and cut them down the middle. I turned it over to tape them together and spread over the track.
