Messy Play Activity: Shape Treasure Hunt [WIN with OMO]

Learning through play is a significant stepping stone to development.

Before the age of 8, your brain and body grow quickly, and you learn social and thinking skills that aid you throughout life. We encourage your child to get messy with our fun activities for a happy, healthy, and confident little one.

Let’s get started!

Shape Treasure Hunt

Search for gold with this treasure hunting activity that will develop your child’s conceptual thinking through shape sorting.

This is a fun activity to do with kids to help them develop their conceptual thinking skills through sorting shapes.

What you’ll need:

What to do:

  1. Draw a few shapes on a box. Cut the shapes out, colour them in and cover them with sticky tape. Take a large box or a plastic container and fill it with sand or mud and bury all the shapes you created.
  2. Ask your little one to close their eyes and start digging for the treasure. Help them name each shape, and then they can begin sorting them into piles of the same shapes. You could also do this activity outside!

At OMO, we believe that every stain represents an important experience – mud stains are the stamp of adventure, grass stains are the sign of exploration, and fruit stains are the aftermath of discovery.

Encourage your kids to get messy with our fun activities for happy, healthy, confident kids.

We’ll be there to sort out the dirty clothes afterward.
