WordPress weekly photo challenge: Geometry

Preschools (and parents) teach kids to recognize and name the shapes they see in the world around them early on. I’ve always had a lot of fun with this activity since our world is made out of shapes, whether by nature or by human design.

Shapes are also a great way to teach your kids how to draw. Using various shapes to draw step by step is the best way to help kids draw well. Your kid may even skip the “stick figure” developmental step if you’re lucky. I know my four-year old did.

I’m using this week’s WordPress photo challenge theme “geometry” to feature a few shapes in my world.

Circle – a full moon

  1. As great as the other images were, you know you had me at the cake…

  2. That must be the cake you told me about that one time that made me drool just hearing about it. Seeing it now has a puddle on the floor below me. Loved all your shapes! The star flowers were great too.

  3. I’m with all of you on the cake…

  4. Wonderful shape shots, Milka. Your cake looks delish . . . perfect for a milestone birthday.

  5. Okay, since the cake is supposed to be a square–but it isn’t really a perfect square–I’ll make the sacrifice and be the one to eat the uneven sides until it is a perfect square…even if it takes many bites to do it!

  6. I see what you meant. Now my mouth is watering too. :)
