There are 2 different templates included in the download. The first one is for parents and has all the pieces of the template on one page. If you use this option, you’ll print it out on white card stock, cut out and trace onto the corresponding colored card stock, then cut out again.

The second one is for multiple kids or for use in the classroom and has the pieces divided according to the colored paper they are to be printed on. Print each page on the colored paper specified at the bottom of the page and then cut the pieces out that you’ll need.
