I went with small tracing shapes for this project. Small shapes would fit onto a half sheet of construction paper when assembled into Thing One and Thing Two. They worked out well for this project. JDaniel did a good job tracing them. I would have made bigger tracing shapes for a slightly younger child.
Tracing carefully was easy for JDaniel. He placed the shapes all over the paper which gave him a lot of wiggle room for cutting. I had wedged all my shapes into one side of the red, white, and blue paper when I had cut my shapes out to save paper. When I saw what he was doing, I was glad we hadn’t done our tracing together. He might have tried to follow my lead and his way was better for him.
Thing One turned out great. I love how JDaniel completed this Dr. Seuss shape activity. His creature has eyes that make me think he up to something and he has a very warm smile.
