3D shapes for kids: Cone

3D shapes for kids: Cone

3D shapes for kids are not always easy to teach. They can be difficult to draw and often have funny names. What makes a 3D shape?  Let's look at the cone shape.

What you need:

  • computer with internet access
  • printer
  • paper
  • colouring pencils or markers

Number of players:


Cones are used often in daily life. Let's look at where they are used:

  • ice cream cones
  • sound amplification (megaphones are cone shapes)
  • funnels
  • marking cones (road works, sporting events)
  • party hats

Have a think about more uses for cones that you know of in your everyday life.

Print off the cone shape to colour or as a reference for a school project.
