Matching and making shapes

Age: from around 18 months

Time: 5 minutes

Equipment needed: satsuma segments / slices of other fruit

Skills: matching pairs, recognising and making shapes, dexterity, counting

At snack time, you can take the opportunity to play with your food!  Encourage your child to separate the satsuma segments, count them, then match them into pairs, make shapes or make butterflies.  Ask your child to tell you what shapes you’re making together and how they change as you take parts away to eat.
