Top kids preschool is a good craft to use to introduce preschool children to the concept of halves. I love using crafts for easy-going lessons!
You can precut the shapes prior to the crafting to speed the process up a bit. Then when they’re done colouring, remove the tape and quickly snip off the uncut corners! Use nice primary or bright colours. Set the pieces out in front of the child.
Point out the dotted line down the center of the circle. Once that is done, reiterate that they now have HALF a circle. Do the same thing with both triangles and the rectangle. Optional: Glue on cotton ball clouds.
Optional: Glue on squares of construction paper or scrunched up pieces of tissue paper to make the water. You’ll end up with two boats this way, which is also a neat lesson about halves. Instead of gluing the boat to the second piece of paper, you can glue the pieces together, put some string through the top and hang from the ceiling. Print four black and white templates on four different colours of construction paper. Or for a bible lesson, make 2 boats and 2 triangle fish.
