Shapes Pin Punching freebie

I’m super excited to be sharing another fun freebie with you guys! We have been loving working on pin punching activities lately. I have really been enjoying creating new printables for just that. They’re so much fun to create fun pieces of art with, after punching out the shape!

Montessori Activities: Shapes Pin punching

Age: Yvann is 4 years old. This depends on your level of comfort with your child’s use of a push pin. 
Why: This work is wonderful for developing hand eye coordination in children. It helps to strengthen muscles in the hand and prepares your child for  writing. Additionally, works like these strengthen concentration! 
What you need 
  • Pin puncher
  • Foam or board for placing paper on 
  • Tray for presentation 
  • Printables or paper for punching 


I present these works with the push pin in a separate bowl or tray. This is convenient as the push pin does not move around on the tray too much when my son carries the tray.

A note on safety: Our push pin is not sharp and is large. This is very important, especially with younger children. Small push pins should not be used with children that still place objects in their mouths. Even with larger push pins, please monitor your children when conducting works like this!
