## 2D Shapes Puppets to Bring Fun to Your Math Lessons!

Kids love maths games! Engaging, colourful and fun, these 2D finger puppets are a great way to consolidate learning about 2D shapes, their names and properties! If you’re looking for a whole-class activity that will get your students having a blast while memorising their shape-names, you’ve found the perfect resource for the job!

Included in this download:

• rectangle
• hexagon
• square
• circle

Try using these for dramatic play, a guess-the-shape game, or print out extras for a fun “shape of the day” mystery game where you leave clues around the room until someone guesses the correct shape!

Hello , These look great! However I did notice that the edges are curved instead of straight, which makes it technically not an exact shape (rectangle, square etc). I normally would not mind but since this links to maths, could this be changed? thanks for your time :)

Hi Christine, thank you for your comment. We have designed these shapes to have curved vertices to compliment the cartoon finger puppets. If you would like sharper vertices may I suggest cutting the puppets inside the cut line to reduce the curve.
