Pillow Shapes

One of my daughter's favorite games we use for reviewing shapes is the pillow shapes game.  We arrange 4 square pillows so that their corners are touching, counting 1, 2, 3, 4, and then - Look! Together their inside sides form the shape of a square!  We do the same thing with 3 pillows, and - Look! They make a triangle!   If you take 2 square pillows and 2 rectangle pillows and put their corners together - A rectangle!  We have fun jumping on the pillows, throwing them in the air and letting them land on our heads, and singing our shapes songs during this activity, as well.  Tons of fun.
