This “Cut and Paste Shapes” worksheet provides preschoolers with a delightful activity that combines the fun of art with the basics of geometry. The worksheet features a series of stars—both large and small—outlined at the top for cutting. Below, the page displays stars with smiling faces, sparkling with an inviting orange hue, ready to be matched. The task directs children to carefully cut out the emoji stars and align them with the corresponding outlined stars. This not only serves as an exercise in identifying and matching shapes but also develops fine motor skills as children maneuver scissors to follow the stars’ contours.
In the first part of the worksheet, students will focus on the art of cutting with precision, enhancing their ability to follow patterns and lines. The second part guides them through the process of pasting, reinforcing their understanding of one-to-one correspondence as they place each smiley star next to its twin. Engaging and educational, this exercise promotes cognitive skills such as problem-solving and spatial awareness while ensuring that learning remains a joyful experience. By integrating these skills into a simple craft, preschoolers are equipped with fundamental tools for their educational journey in a way that feels like play.
