Shake it out (shakes hands like in the video)

1. Have children prepare to transition into matching the shapes.

2. I will hold up a shape to the camera. Who has this shape?

3. Children will choose their same shape, then hold up their shapes.

4. Ask the children, can they match where the shape goes on their shadow sheet?

5. If a child hesitates, parents may assist.

Praise children as they follow along with matching shapes to shadows.

This is a fun game to encourage parent-child interactions over Zoom. It is great for hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and social-emotions skills! My children and parents love these interactions. We change it up to flow with music or beat the hourglass minute timer or online minute to win it.
