Free Paper Pattern Block Templates | Printable Pattern Block Shapes PDF

Pattern blocks are a set of geometric shapes, usually made from wood or plastic. Kids can combine the shapes to form pictures or patterns. They’ve been around since the 1960s, and contain 6 distinctly colored shapes: A yellow hexagon, a blue rhombus, a green equilateral triangle, an orange square, a red trapezoid, and a small beige rhombus.

On this page you will find a set of pattern block templates that you can print and cut out. The templates have been combined into a single PDF, available in color or black and white. Each 8.5×11 inch sheet is filled with a particular shape. With these paper pattern blocks, you can continue building a pattern or design, without having to go out and buy more wood or plastic pattern block shapes.

Each edge of a pattern block measures 1 inch in length. When printing your PDF, make sure that you print the PDF at 100% size, so that the dimensions of the shapes remain accurate. These shapes have been saved in vector format, so they can also be edited in a program like Adobe Illustrator, the program that was used to create them.

If you want to make high quality pattern blocks, I recommend cutting them out using an X-acto knife and a ruler. Furthermore, you may want to print them onto cardboard or cardstock, and then laminate them.

I’ve also included 6 simple pattern block designs that kids can build on: A ship, a ufo, a car, a house, a shark, and a turtle.
