Building Animal Faces With Shapes

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I have been working with several kids who have visual perceptual problems, and they have a hard time with some of the simple tasks. I am working on getting back to basics with them so that we can build on it. I wanted to have them put together shapes to make objects, and I made these animals with shapes.

I have a bunny since spring is here, and I tried to make animals that used the same shapes so that you just change a piece of it to change the animal.

There is also a puppy, kitty, and a cow.

I printed these on printable magnet paper , which is the first time that I have used that. It worked really well, and the pieces stay together as you are building the animal. They also stick on the refrigerator, and can be put together on a cookie sheet or magnetic board. I think that I will be doing more with printable magnet paper in the future.

Here is the free download set of all of the different shapes and pictures.   I also have pictures of each of the finished animals.

  • Bunny
  • Puppy
  • Kitty
  • Cow

You could easily just draw the shapes, or have the client cut out the shapes to practice their cutting skills prior to their putting together skills.



  • Fine motor
  • Scissor cutting
  • Visual perceptual skills
