    Can I suggest that a B&W outline version with a separate page for each shape e.g. 4 of the biggest shape on one page, 4 of the next etc etc so that we can copy onto coloured card with a minimum of hassle and waste?

    Hi. LOVE this resource but its REALLY heavy on the ink. Would you consider doing black and white outline of tangram cutouts and shapes? Whilst the colours and backgrounds are pretty and Im sure well loved, they are not economical to print teachers on a budget. Cheers

    Hi Helen,
    This is a great idea. I have our design team working on it as we speak and I will keep you updated.
    If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
