I originally got the connect 4 game as a fine motor posting type game for my special needs child. The other kids also love to play with it and after I saw a post about modifying the game to use with factions I decided to modify to go with our shapes themes.
How to make the shape sorting game:
- You will need the free printable shapes
- the connect 4 game
- some blue tack because we will want to remove the shapes at some time.
Print and cut out your shape circles.
Add a little bit or blue tack to hold the paper circles down.
I only added the shapes to one side of the disks you can totally print off 2 pages worth and do both sides.
Then it is sorting time! Sort the shapes in a line.
My 3 year old loved doing this activity it was an awesome game since she already loves using the connect 4 game as is.

Another variation of the shapes learning game is to pattern with them! Which one comes next?
I hope you also enjoy this game as much as we did! Have fun learning!!
