Shape Windows

O and I had fun reviewing her shapes using these shape windows (via Confessions of a Homeschooler).

I printed the shapes on cardstock and used an x-acto knife to cut out the middle of the shapes before laminating them. After laminating the shapes, I cut them out of the cardstock (I like to do most of my cutting after laminating in order to have a cleaner edge). Now they look like windows, which is a fun effect :) O had fun running around the room and looking at different objects through her shape windows, and she's looking forward to using the shape windows to teach "baby sister" her shapes!


  1. What do you mean when you say that you cut them out of the cardstock after laminating them. I am a little confused. Thanks.

  2. I laminate the whole sheet before cutting. Many people cut the object and then laminate, but I prefer the clean edge that you get when you laminate a full page before cutting. Hope it makes more sense now :)

  3. I just wrote about circles and I'll have to link to you. Great idea.
