Cut-and-paste activity sheets are educational tools that reinforce curriculum material and make a fun craft for children. Use cut-and-paste sheets to teach about numerical order, the alphabet, animals and plants, shape recognition and pattern sequence. Some sheets can be coloured as an additional part of the activity.

Numerical Order

Use cut-and-paste activity sheets that require the children to cut out the numbers from the top of the page and glue them in blocks to the bottom of the page in correct numerical order. These include single and double digital numbers, such as 1 though 5 in jumbled order or 16 through 20.


Print out cut-and-paste activities where children must cut out and match the correct shape to the correct outline of the shape, such as triangles, squares and circles. Shape puzzles of large objects such as school buses and bicycles are another option. The children may also colour the shapes before cutting them out and gluing them.


Browse for cut-and-paste activity sheets where the children must match the upper case letter to its tracing. Look for these sheets based on a theme if desired, such as dinosaur designs by the letters, pink letters with hearts for Valentine's Day or green letters with shamrocks for Saint Patrick's Day.

Animals and Trees

Look for cut-and-paste sheets of tree drawings that include leaves for the children to cut out and paste on the branches. These smaller cutouts also help the children sharpen their cutting skills. Also try cut-and-paste sheets of animals, such as squirrels of assorted sizes. The children must cut out acorns and glue them onto the squirrels' paws.


Look for pattern cut-and-paste sheets where the student must paste the correct object that comes next in the pattern, such as Christmas ball ornaments. If the pattern is blue and silver ornaments, and the last ornament was silver, the child must choose the correct ornament to paste in the pattern. Some patterns include two of the same Christmas ornament before a pattern change.

Colour Theme

Colour themes are another option for cut-and-paste sheets, such as yellow. The child must match the correct item with the correct sentence about that item, such as a picture of a yellow bird being matched to a sentence that reads "Some birds are yellow." Green, red, purple, blue and orange theme sheets are also available.
