I wanted to have some of the twelve basic shapes for kids to trace. These help them learn their shapes and work on fine motor skills.
They have the following shapes circle, square, rectangle, triangle, oval, rhombus, star, heart, crescent, pentagon, hexagon, and octagon.
Each of the pages is a clean page so kids can focus on the shape in the middle. They have the shape name and a spot where could write their names.

Ways to use the Shape Tracing Pages
I love to have different ways to use a printable. Whos says one way is the right way! So I like to show you just how you could use a printable.
I always here but I just want to trace it. Well, guess what you can. You can use anything you want to trace the page. It is loads of fun to use what kids love best at that time. It could be a crayon like below. Maybe you want to use a marker, and even make it a change and use watercolors to trace it!
The mats work great for fine motor work as well. If you plan on reusing them a lot I recommend laminating them!
I love using mini erasers! You can get different ones for the season and make this a seasonal activity. Plus you could count how many erasers you used to outline the shape! You could also use counters for the hands-on item. We have some bear counters we love to use.
Don’t forget that these can be playdough mats! Yup! You can make playdough snakes and outline the shape. You can see we put the shape in a sheet protector
(PS this is how I store these). Then used the playdough for the shape.
