These shape clip cards are perfect for helping your young preschooler learn to recognize and identify shapes.
My Three knows the names of the basic shapes, but not with consistency. I created these clip cards to help him find matching shapes and provide an opportunity for us to talk about their names.
Clip cards for teaching shapes
As I gave him each new card, he looked at the top shape and found the one at the bottom that matched it. I was sure to vary the colors so that this was not a color matching activity.
Beyond circle, triangle, and heart, he doesn’t know too many shape names. So this was an opportunity to talk about them together as he worked.
And talk about some fine motor practice! Clipping the cards was hard at first, but he had the hang of it by the end.

Hello, this is such wonderful work. Thank you so much for your generosity! But I can’t get the shapes cards from the link – is there another place to find them?

i really love you from the bottom of my heart you will be blessed for all this hard work for our kids
Thank you, Shandra!
First I want to say you have saved my intervention research—wow I am so glad I found you. Do you have a match lower case with upper case of each alphabet letter using the clips? I have looked around and I am not finding it–maybe in your purchase books? I am enjoying the free materials–thank you.. I am a special ed teacher and each kiddo is different in the needs.
Hi Cindy – I’m glad you found my site too! 🙂 I do not have what you’re looking for, but my friend Malia does: http://www.playdoughtoplato.com/alphabet-clip-cards/
I love these. The pictures are so kid friendly. Do you have this or something similar to these that ask the children to count and answer how many sides does each shape have? Thank you so much.
No, I’m afraid not! I did recently share some low prep shape games as part of my Print and Play series. You can search for them by going to the home page. They are either on the first or second page right now.
Ok. Thank you for the reply. 🙂
When I tried to pull up to download the shape clip cards it said opps could not find. Would you be able to email me this would love to use it with my kiddos.
I can’t email files, but if you click on the button right underneath the download link you’ll find common solutions to downloading problems.
Thank you for all your wonderful, free printable learning pages. I feel like I found gold when I found your website.
I’m very glad to hear that, Melissa! I’m thrilled you found my site. 🙂
I love your activities. I wondered if you do any of the cards without color? I do not have a color printer and when I print out the cards that have color they are not as fun. If you had some that were just the outlines I could color them to make them more appealing to my students.
Thank you for all of your activities. They are very helpful.
Hi Lisa! My Color Me Readers are in black and white, but most of my other printables are not, for 3 reasons: I like color, which is why I create them that way ;). Also, for many of my printables black and white clip art is not available. For others I would have to purchase an additional set of black and white clip art. But my biggest reason is that it would take me twice as long to create the printable, since I’d have to create new pages and insert black and white clip art. I do plan to do a series this summer of printable black and white games- that you can just print and play. But for now, with five small kids, creating a separate printable for each just isn’t something I’m able to do. I will keep your thoughts in mind!
I will love to try this with my grandson, he is coming today to be with me!
I understand I can just print them? Here I go. THANK YOU
I hope he enjoys them, Martita!
IT WORKED!!! 🙂 Thank you very much, he LOVED playing Shapes and we had a good learning game. Great idea! Thank you again, Martita
These are cute. My kids are totally going to fight over them.
