Subject: Geometrical shapes used to form other shapes

My daughter is working on using three different sizes of triangles, a square, and a parallogram to create various shapes, i.e. house, the letter E, candle. She has tried many different ways to put the figures together to create another figure, but has a couple she cannot figure out. Any suggestions?
