Printable Visual Perceptual Worksheets

copyscape notice

These printable visual perceptual worksheets can be used to supplement hands-on activities as part of your child's visual perceptual development.

I highly recommend all the resources on this page because I have used them myself for years with my own kids at home as well as in therapy situations. I've identified the visual perceptual skills that each printable pack focuses on and I've also given some tips to help you get the most out of each printable.

Honesty Point: All the printables are created by Your Therapy Source, and I am an affiliate for them because I love their resources! I receive a small commission for each sale which helps supports my site. Clicking on the "Add to cart" button will take you to their site where you can complete your purchase.

If you are at all concerned about your child's visual perceptual skills, please request an occupational therapy evaluation. Use of the visual perceptual worksheets on this page is NOT a substitute for occupational therapy intervention!

So, without further ado, here are my favorite printable visual perceptual worksheets for kids:

Patterns, Patterns, Patterns

One of the best value-for-money books with more than 50 worksheets that address a whole range of visual perceptual skills.

Patterns of objects make up the majority of the worksheets (hence the name!)

Only $4.99!

Patterns! Patterns! Bundle of printable visual discrimination worksheets for kids

The first 8 pages of visual discrimination worksheets involve visually scanning from left to right in order to find the given items, so I would recommend that you sit opposite your child to make sure he/she is scanning to find the objects and not jumping all over the place visually.

There are worksheets that require figure-ground perception and visual closure. There are quite a few worksheets that practice visual-motor skills.

If your child has poor pencil skills: he/she can point out the answers, or trace with their fingers.

huge variety of visual perception worksheets - work on visual scanning, figure-ground perception, visual closure and more!more than 50 different visual perception worksheets!

There are visual motor puzzles in grid format where the child needs to copy lines or shapes in a grid. These are suitable for older kids to draw, but for younger kids or for those who have poor pencil skills, I prefer to adjust the activity as follows:

I make 2 copies of each page, and cut out one set of the images and then have the child position the pictures on the grid as shown alongside. This works on spatial perception as well as matching skills.

Printing: All pages are in black & white. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

Speed Match

Another bargain buy! I LOVE this product!

Only $2.99!

Printable matching games with time challenge - develop visual discrimination skills

There are 20 totally different sets of pictures that are presented in the same format - which is a set of small cards that need to be cut up (by child or parent) and then matched to the main set of pictures.

The idea is that the child races against a timer, but this is optional - I prefer to let a younger child work without a timer, but older children may like the timed challenges.

Depending on the puzzle, the child uses visual discrimination, visual closure, figure-ground perception and/or position in space skills.

If your child struggles, or if your child is still in preschool, cut the puzzles into strips so only 3 or 4 are visible at a time. This makes matching easier.

it is worth printing these in color and laminating them but printing in black and white simply adds to the visual discrimination challenge and works well.

Visual Discrimination Puzzles

This is a set of 24 puzzles that follow the same format: the child has to scan the grid and cross out the item (letter, number, image) that occurs more than once. Although the same format is followed, the pages cover a variety of themes.

Only $4.99!

Visual Discrimination Puzzles - a bundle of visual perception worksheets to help kids develop visual discrimination skills

To complete the task requires some planning skills as well visual memory (holding the latter/number/image in your head) and visual discrimination (scanning the sheet for identical objects). The puzzles also reinforce the skill of visually scanning from left to right. I recommend you sit opposite your child to make sure that the visual scanning is happening correctly!

The letter grids produce a secret word made up of left-over letters, the number grids give you the number of seconds/repetitions for which an exercise must be done, and the image puzzles produce a brief exercise or hand-muscle routine to be done using the remaining images. A fun concept!

Find The Animals

Work on directionality, visual motor and visual tracking skills!

Only $2.99!

Find the Animals - printable visual perception worksheets for spatial orientation and directionality

Beginning on the specified "start" box, kids need to follow the arrows to find the animal and then either color the animal, or put a specified shape around it.

  • Really nice way of working on directionality and spatial orientation skills.
  • The visual motor demand comes from keeping the path of the pencil within the boxes.
  • Visual scanning and tracking skills are also brought into play as your child scans ahead to count the blocks and direction in which to travel.

Increase the spatial orientation challenge:  Cover up the arrows at the bottom and then give your child the verbal instructions (eg "move two blocks to the left").

Your child won't have the visual clues of the arrows to help, and will be using more spatial orientation.

Following directions while working on a visual perceptual worksheetFollowing directions

Increase the auditory memory challenge: Cover up the arrows as above but give your child two or more verbal instructions at a time, (eg "move two blocks to the left then one block down").

Size: 6.5MB
Printing: Black and White. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

Magnified Monsters

This is a great little resource for figure-ground perception, visual discrimination and visual scanning, with a funky monster theme!

Only $1.99

Magnified Monsters - a printable pack of monster themed visual discrimination worksheets

The activities are presented in 2 different ways.  In both, your child is presented with a piece of a monster and needs to pay attention to small details in order to find the monster which matches the piece.

The color format makes it a little easier to differentiate between monsters. You can increase the visual discrimination demand by printing in black and white, which reduces the "clues" given to your child and will force your child to pay close attention to spot the tiny details to identify the exact monster.

Help your child to pay attention to the small details such as the shape of the tooth, the style of "hair' in the background, etc, in order to differentiate between similar looking monsters.

Find the Differences

These standard "find the difference" pictures, covering all kinds of themes, are ideal for younger children or to encourage figure-ground perception, visual discrimination and visual scanning skills.

Only $2.99

Find the Differences - a collection of printable worksheets for figure-ground perception for young kids

The pictures are clear, not too detailed, and there are just 5 differences between each picture. I really like the simplicity of the black and white line pictures, which enable the child to focus on finding differences without being overwhelmed with details.

There are 30 find-the-difference puzzles in all, plus solutions.

School Doodle Find

A fun back-to-school theme that can be used any time of year!

This set of visual perceptual worksheets works on visual scanning, visual tracking, figure-ground perception and visual discrimination skills.

Only $2.99

School Doodle Find - a collection of printable visual scanning and figure-ground perception worksheets

The activities are presented in a find-and-color and a game-board format, and can be used one-on-one or at an activity station.

If you want to work specifically on the visual tracking and scanning aspects of the worksheets, I recommend you sit opposite your child and show him/her how to track across the page, using a finger to guide the eyes.

If this is too hard, cut a "window" in a piece of cardstock to help your child focus in just one area at a time.

Size: 28 MB
Printing: Color is best, but B&W can increase the challenge for older kids. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

Memory Challenge

Work on your child's visual memory and/or auditory memory with this download!

There are 3 different kinds of activities in this resource, which can be used in different ways to vary the demand for your child.

Only $3.99

Memory Challenge - a collection of printable visual memory and auditory memory resources

There are 5 black and white sheets that contain line drawings that are easily identifiable and should be familiar to your child.

Then there are sheets that contain 12 coloured pics around a theme (eg fruit). Try to choose a theme with which your child is familiar (eg don't use the fruit sheet if your child is unfamiliar with the different fruits).

Memory Challenge - printable worksheets to improve visual memory and auditory memory for kids

I personally found the pictures to be a little abstract (and therefore potentially hard to identify verbally), but if you use a duplicate sheet which is cut up, your child can point out what was seen instead of using words.

The third set of sheets contain "memory boards" - sheets that are filled with a variety of small, colorful, unrelated objects. The idea is that your child study the sheets and then tell you what he/she can remember seeing. There are quite literally hundreds of objects on each memory board, so you can make it easier by cutting or folding the sheets to show your child just one part at a time.

Although the sheets come with space for your child to write the answers, you can easily do this verbally with your child and ask your child to TELL you what he/she remembers.

Or print a duplicate sheet, cut out the objects and ask your child to point out the remembered pictures.


Size: 6MB
Printing: Color is best. Although the second set of sheets is in black and white,  the first and third sets need to be printed in color for best results. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

How These Printable Downloads Work:

You are allowed to print as many copies as you need for the children in your family, classroom or therapy room, so they are great value for money. I have tried all these e-books myself and believe they are well worth the tiny investment if you want to improve your child's  skills. I have negotiated exclusive bundle deals just for my OT Mom readers.

When you click on the "Add to Cart" buttons, you will be taken to Your Therapy Source's shopping cart.  Once your order is complete, pay for it and then you will receive download links for the e-books, which come in PDF format. Save them to your PC and then print out the pages as and when you need them.

Honesty Point

As an affiliate for Your Therapy Source, I will receive a small commission on the sale of any of these printable worksheets if they are purchased from my site. However, the reviews are all mine and completely honest. I had found and used their products myself before requesting to make their e-books available to my visitors.

Thank you for supporting my site!



If your child struggles to complete the visual perceptual worksheets, consider seeking an occupational therapy assessment to get to the bottom of the issues.

You can also try the easier preschool printable visual perception activities to see if those help.

I hope that you will find these visual perceptual worksheets as helpful as I did with my own kids as well as in treating kids in school.
