⚫️Sensory Silhouette Matching Activity⚫️

By ChennaiMom

This sensorial silhouette (shadow) matching activity is super easy to make, match and play with. I had some scrap sandpaper from the 🛣DIY Road Shape Activity🛣 and in order to make use of it made this silhouette matching for baby moo using colorful shapes

It takes around 30min to do

Materials Required:

  • Sandpaper 
  • Felt sheet ( colors of your choice)
  • Pencil 
  • Crayon 
  • Scissor 
  • Packing tape (optional)

How to make: 

  • I had a scrap of one square and a rectangle shapes of sandpaper, I just joined them together using a packing tape and used it as the base for this activity😉

  • The number of shapes is of your choice, (I made a heart, triangle, square, circle and a diamond) you can even skip this step if you have the felt shapes from the other activities

I made the set of shapes again as it was the request from baby moo, the shapes and the colors were chosen by him😍

  • Take the felt sheets and cut the required shapes 

  • Take the sandpaper, lay the shapes on it and draw the outline using a pencil first

  • And then remove the shapes and using a crayon color the shapes, to make it to look like, it’s the silhouette (shadow) of the shapes 

  • Lay the Sandpaper silhouette and the shapes near it and encourage your baby to match the shapes to its silhouette 

The shapes just sticks to the sandpaper without any glue needed and this makes our baby to learn about the textured abilities of this (sandpaper+felt) combo😎 

This Activity helps: 

  • In the development of visual discrimination 
  • To develop vocabulary (as our babies, name the shapes when they match them)
  • In Shape recognition 
  • In Color recognition 
  • In hand eye coordination 
  • To develop abilities in Math and Reading skills later

Make this super simple activity at home and enjoy the fun of matching and learning about the Silhouettes with your babies lovelies 😎
