A delicious way to encourage shape and color identification and build fine motor skills! These two-part cupcakes pull apart to reveal a shape. Children must match up the shapes to put them back together. There is also a shape at the bottom of the pan to match as well. Shapes include circle, square, triangle, rectangle, diamond, hexagon, star and heart.
