If you have a kindergartner that is working on cutting, they can do the cutting for you. If not, I highly recommend you do the cutting ahead of time as little children are not known for their patience.

To work on shape recognition and color recognition I  mad the shape buddie in all one color, but you could certainly mix and match it for a colorful friene. I cut out the following:

  • Blue Circle – large 4″ circle, 2 small 2″ circle, and 2 extra small 1″ circles
  • Yellow diamond – large, 2 small, and 2 x- small
  • Green square – large, 2 small, and 2 x- small
