I love these cards because you have two options for what you want to use. Each type of card has all twelve shapes: circles, square, rectangle, triangle, oval, rhombus, star, heart, crescent, pentagon, hexagon, and octagon.

The first type of card is just a set of shapes to trace. There are 6 cards per page. I have printed ours on color cardstock and laminated them.
