Museum Shape Search with Free Printable

My girls love going to art museums. Every time we go we do something different. This time we went and did a shape search. It is always fun. There are always so many different things to look for when you go to the museum. Shapes are always fun to look for. You can be creative about your shapes or find one that stick out while you are looking.

I made a fun printable to help us keep track of the shapes that we had found and where we found them!

If you can’t get to a museum I recommend the book: Museum Shapes (Metropolitan Museum of Art). It has great art work and is wonderful for giving kids ideas about shapes in art work.

There are always so many things to see in a museum. You can always find something different while you are there. There are exhibits that change and those that always stay the same. We did this shape challenge two ways. We did one where we found one new shape in each room and one where we tried to see how many shapes we could find in one room. It changed up the trip and made it fun for the girls. You can see some of the shapes we found in the picture below
