I set up this easy activity the night before and had it ready for my twins when they came down. It was a great way to start our morning and gave me a few quick minutes in the kitchen before breakfast!

Fridge Shape Match Activity Set Up

1. Place different magnetic tile shapes on the fridge and use a liquid chalk to trace different shapes on the fridge.

If you are using a liquid chalk marker, double check that it won’t stain your fridge by testing it in a corner out of the way. You should be able to remove the liquid chalk marker using paper towel and water and a little bit of soap.

2. Remove the magnetic tiles and set them aside for your toddler or preschooler.

3. Invite your toddler or preschooler to choose a magnetic tile shape and match it to the correct shape on the fridge.

This was a great activity to keep my toddler occupied while I prepared breakfast. Once they were done I removed the shapes and let them do it again!

    Count out 6 balls of play dough in two different colours and see if they will stick to your fridge. Test it first to make sure it won’t stain. I just tried on my fridge and they stayed. Or you can use washable chalk markers in two different colours. Again test it on your fridge to make sure it doesn’t stain. Washable chalk markers should come off with a little water and a paper towel.
