My 4 1/2 year old boy loves the shapes packets that I make for him. I intentionally provide a variety of activities with each shape since he’s a boy that needs variety. 😉
This packet of Square worksheets kept him busy during our first week back to school after the Christmas break. We’re going to use them again this coming week.
The Square booklet and the square maze are his favorites! He’s obsessed with mazes right now, so I try to find him a few to do every day.
These square worksheets and the square booklet are just right for your preschooler or Kindergartner who is learning shapes, or just would like a few fun square activities.
Note: This packet was published originally in 2016. I’ve completely overhauled it with 5 new pages, the square booklet, and fresh new fonts and layouts.

There are many different ways you can use these square worksheets:
— Bind them down the edge (this is my favorite binder) and use them as a “book” for the week
2022 update: I still use the binding machine after all of these years! I believe I bought it 10 years ago. I bind curriculum manuals, handwriting worksheets, and more.
— Slide a few pages in your child’s Calendar Notebook to use each day
— Make them available for your youngest learners while you’re working with your older children
— Place a page or two in your child’s work box each day, if you use the work box system
— Use these worksheets as part of a Shape of the Week curriculum
In this 15-page square worksheet set, you’ll find:
→ Square maze with handwriting practice
→ Square dot-to-dot
→ Color the Squares by code
→ Color and cut out the square puzzle
→ I am a Square – facts about squares
→ Silly Squares! Color the squares with various patterns
→ Is it a square? Cut out each picture and paste in the correct column
→ Square Patterns – Paste the correct circle to complete the pattern
→ Square poster with square facts
→ Square Color By Number – using numbers 8 and 10
→ These tires are haywire! – The car has square tires!; draw a line to match the other square pictures
→ Where are the squares? Use a highlighter to mark all of the squares

Early Learning Shapes Sticker Book – My girls have always loved sticker books! This was one of their favorites.
2022 update: I just bought this for my boy, as he loves sticker books, too.
Mama’s Learning Corner is filled with this style of printable mini-booklet. My kids have used them for 10+ years in various ways, mostly in the 2nd grade and under years, of course. Many of them involve coloring or writing.
This square booklet is more of a reading-style booklet with a small activity on the last page.
After assembly (simple instructions are in the download), sit with your child and see if he can recognize the word ‘square’ on each page. Model reading to him, with your finger underlining each word as you read it.
If he chooses, he can also color the pictures in the booklet.
Out of all the square activities, the booklet is my son’s favorite each day!
Lastly, the activity on the back can be done with any marker you choose – a bingo dabber, highlighter, pencil, crayon, Twistable – whatever your child desires. The goal is to identify each of the squares on the back page and mark them in some fashion.
If you’re using this booklet as a Shape of the Week activity, I’d encourage you make the booklet on the first day, and then read it each day you’re reviewing squares.
Consistency is always key with the younger crowd. And homeschooling in general, for that matter.
