TIPS
  • At step 4, engage your child by asking them about the shape of the pizza topping they are adding so that they can practice recognizing shapes as well.
  • Add another level to the activity by introducing the colors of typical pizza toppings! E.g. cheese is usually yellow, vegetables are green, Pepperoni is red, etc, for them to recognize colors too.
