 Papercraft Cubes ABC Shapes Numbers Colors Emotions Animals


Using Beacon’s Zip Dry Paper Glue, I printed my cubes on cardstock, cut out, scored all the fold lines and assembled. These cubes were excellent for my 3 year old. They were large which made them easy to handle. They were light weight which meant no BooBoos. They teach colors, shades of colors, geometric shapes, emotions, opposites, the alphabet, numbers, and patterns. The animals cubes also teach colors. Sadly, due to copyright issues, the opposites cards are not included in the free template.

I also made some using alphabet flashcards I found on the internet. My child was happy enough with the set in the picture. The pyramid was taller than her! That was all that mattered.

This was another loved game in our home when she was younger. We would lay the ABC floor mats out on the floor. My husband and I would stand on a letter. She would hop scotch through the ABCs to be grabbed up by us, turned upside down, and held so until she said the secret word! The secret word was the letter sound. The number side was never really used.

I printed the items on cardstock and cut out. Traced them onto the Felt then cut out. I used felt glue or tacky glue to adhere.
