Begin by taking the tops off of your oatmeal containers. In the middle of each lid, use the scissors to cut an opening big enough for the printable card to slide through. (If you have rectangular boxes, you could cut right into the side of the box instead of the lid.)
Tape a shape to each one of the containers
Have your children use the different colored crayons to draw the printable shape cards
Let your children insert the colored shape card into the correct container
Be sure to call out the names of the shape as they play. For older children, have them state what shape they are inserting in the slot.
