More Fun with Tangrams

I know that I've commented before about how much I love Tan grams. In honor of Chinese New Year, I had these out on the table for the kids to play with before we got started for the day. We haven't had them out in a while, so the kids took a renewed interest to them and really focused on their individual pictures.

There is such a variety of patterns for the shapes to fit onto, that there is something of interest for everyone. Flowers, robots, trains, and teddy bears magically appear.

I divvy out the shapes into little bowls and the kids share them as they work on their own tan grams. Everyone is at different skill levels, but this is one of those activities that everyone does awesome with!
