Tangrams to cut out

These printable tangram puzzles are free for personal use and are designed to be printed on A4 paper,

Step 1 : Print out one of our Tangram templates onto cardstock

Step 2 : Cut out very carefully along the lines

You can complete your tangram by providing a set of picture cards with different shapes that your pupils can be asked to make . You can either use themed tangrams, e.g. animals such as cats and swans, letters and numbers, or a mixture .

It's best to simply print puzzle silhouettes onto paper or card and laminate them for prolonged use. You can create small booklets by hole punching them and slotting them into a ringbinder.

Solutions can be printed separately to avoid pupils cheating.

Originally, the Chinese played tangrams with the obligatory seven figures made out of wood and coloured with natural dyes. Nowadays, we can create the tangram puzzles from foam to cardboard and paper; the separate figures can be made out practically of anything.

Even the process of creating the puzzle can turn into a game for children.

    I printed out several of your puzzles to complete with my grade ones along with the pdf tangram cut outs you offered. I was very disappointed that they did not fit together! How can we fix this?
