When I was a kid, one of my strongest summer memories is going down to the Dairy Queen to get an OREO Blizzard.
It was my very favorite childhood treat.
(In fact, it’s taking every bit of willpower in my body not to break off from writing this post and go get one.)
Ice cream is still a classic treat for kids, especially during the summer.
And that’s why I wanted to make a fun ice cream-themed learning activity for preschoolers – this ice cream preschool shape sorting activity!
This is such a fun (and low-prep) learning activity for small ones!
You only need a few minutes to prepare it and then the kids will be off and running!
Just be prepared for them to ask you for ice cream immediately afterward.

Ice Cream Preschool Shape Sorting Activity
To use this preschool shape sorting activity, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
To begin, just print both the ice cream “scoops” and the ice cream” cones”.
The cones feature the shapes themselves.
And the scoops are labeled with the shape names. (I used the same color for the scoop and the shape on each cone for a little hint.)
Laminate both pages and cut them out. Then just mix them up and let the kids get started!
How to Use the Ice Cream Shape Sorting Activity
We started off by laying out all of the ice cream “cones” and “scoops”.
As Piglet found each shape cone, I asked her to name the shape.
Then she used the colors and the beginning letters to give her clues as to which shape name matched which shape.
Before we knew it, she had built all five ice cream cones! Enough to open her own sweet shop!
