We are moving our bodies and learning about shapes with our shape hunt activity for preschoolers. Our kiddos are getting promoted from street cop to detective and they are on the hunt for some missing shapes in our Community Helpers preschool theme. 
 

So, while Rea is always ready for an activity at the table, D is not. The boy likes to be on the move.  That means I am always looking for ways to make our activities involve some movement. I am sure you can relate and are in need of an activity that gets your kiddo moving too. 

This shape hunt activity will work on shape identification skills and movement.
