These free printable triangle templates are perfect for crafts and math activities!
I love sharing printable shape patterns. Today’s post features a variety of printable triangles that range in size from 1″ up to 10″ triangle template! And, because I was just having too much fun making triangles to quit, I also made a triangle worksheet for preschoolers. I hope you enjoy!
How to use triangle templates

There are so many ways to use printable triangles! Here are just a few:
Cut out different sizes to make a triangle fish! Use a large triangle for the body. Glue a smaller triangle on top for a fin and attach a medium fin for a tail. Have your little one draw on eyes and a mouth!
Use the triangle printables for math activities.
Have your child color and trace triangles to practice making the triangle shape.
Help your child cut out the triangle templates as shape learning practice and to develop their scissor skills.
Explore triangles by making a larger triangle from multiple smaller triangles, like in the image below. For this to work, you will need smaller triangles that are 1/2 size of the larger triangle (for example, four 1.5″ triangles and one 3″ triangle).
A quick word to the wise: Cutting out lots of small shapes gets really, really tedious. (and painful! I rubbed my hand raw with scissors before cutting out paper flowers for our wedding.)
If you need lots of smaller triangles, do yourself huge favor and just get a triangle punch. They’re inexpensive and will save your hand.
Are you a teacher or a parent? If so, you need a free Ebates account ASAP! (They’re called Rakuten now, but same thing.) Ebates gives you cash back with a zillion different online retailers, including Amazon, Walmart, Target, Lego, Crayola, and more. If I’d signed up when I first learned about them years ago, I’d have earned hundreds in cash back by now!

The listed measurements are based on the width of the triangles.
To use this template, trace half of the triangle then flip the pattern over and trace the other half. You can also print two copies and tape them together along the center line.
This worksheet is a fun way to promote shape recognition and fine motor skills!
You can have your child trace the solid line triangle and the dotted line version, then draw a triangle between the x marks and, finally, draw a triangle freeform. The smaller triangles are also great for tracing or coloring.
