All you will have to do to prepare this shape game is to cut the puzzles out. I always find it easiest to use a paper cutter to cut the individual puzzles and then go back with scissors to cut out the three different pieces.

Shape Games for Kids

Students will start this shape game for kids by placing all of the pieces on a table or floor.

They will then need to choose a puzzle piece. This students chose a rhombus shaped puzzle piece. I always encourage my students to say the shape out loud. You can even encourage them to trace the shape with their finger.
