Pattern blocks are fun, versatile and encourage a wide range of early skills and knowledge that help children make sense of the world. Creative expression, colours and shapes, symmetry, and understanding patterns to predict what comes next, to name a few!
Make time to talk about the differences in the shapes with your young ones. Get up and moving in or outside of your home / classroom and see how many shapes they can spot.
For older children, they can practice drawing different shapes by tracing the shapes and spelling each shape name. Challenge them to make a new shape / design or create a mega-shape or pattern.
