The Tight Fit

– Cut out the shapes along the folds so that you’d have 2 pieces of paper: the shape & the leftover.
– Give the shapes & leftovers to your kids. The have to visualize which shape fits which leftover.

Variations for ages 6+:

* If you have more than one kid you can let them do the 1st and 2nd steps. Then let them switch shapes and leftovers and compete to finish it.
