When children are in the early years of childhood, they are real sponges in terms of learning. Although there are many things that simply take time to settle in your mind, with others we can help you with games and small tricks to learn them naturally.

It is the case of the geometric figures, with which we can play so that the children can differentiate and learn them easily and above all, very fun. With a little patience, the children will remember each of the figures.

## Steps to learn geometric figures with children

On the one hand, it is necessary that we have clear geometric figures that we want to teach them, and before we start playing with them with the activities that appear below, we let them clear what are the game instruments. These are the main geometric figures that will teach them to children:

- The circle: Lest we forget what is, is better than the beginning, we call it by the name of something you usually see, as is the case of figures like a ball, or even with the sun. In this way, when you know these words, you will know later the form that you have.

- A square: Children usually draw houses from a square, which forms the structure of the house, this will be the simplest way to remember your name. We can also use the name of the square to remind us if we think, for example, of the cushions of a sofa. -

Rectangles : The doors are arectangular element, so it is the way we can use for children to easily relate their image. If in addition, they are attracted to vehicles such as trucks, we can also talk about this figure.-

Triangles : As we used to talk about the house, we are sure that our children draw the roof of their house with a nice triangle that crowns the square they have already learned before.fun to learn geometric shapes with kids Games

## If what we want is that, once they have learned that a door is a rectangle, the sun is circular and the roof of the houses is a triangle, what we can do for you this is assured, with a little skill and patience, to play this house with the children, where each of the elements will be present.

Helping us with materials such as plasticine or cardboard, together with children we can work on cutting or shaping these geometric figures while we are doing the landscape

where, of course, the house will appear formed by rectangles, squares, triangles ... And where they will leave realizing that there are many more options: windows that are converted magically into squares or rectangles, or even their own image, since they will draw their round face, and probably their body based on a rectangular 'box' of the that arms and legs grow. In this way, in addition to being learning, will also play with the elements that we provide in a fun way based on crafts and will be unknowingly enhancing your imagination
