Pattern Caterpillar Cards Busy Bag
This learning activity has two ways to play and is a great way to practice patterning while sharpening their visual discrimination skills. (This bag is also offered as a party favor with fewer cards)
Kids need to match the pattern on the cards with colored pom poms. There are 3 ways to play:
1. Beginners can build directly on the colored pattern cards as a color matching activity.
2. Draw a pattern card and recreate the pattern on the blank caterpillar.
3. Identify the pattern and build the pattern off the cards to repeat the pattern.
The bag comes with 10 double-sided laminated pattern cards professionally printed on 100# card stock. You also get one blank caterpillar to build on! This bag also includes 10 pom poms.
What they are learning WHILE having fun:
Patterning and problem solving – Focusing on what comes next after identifying the sequence.
Color recognition and visual discrimination – Kids need to recognize the differences in the colors to replicate the patterns.
Sequencing and directionality – Kids need to focus on placing the objects in the correct order from left to right, these are pre-reading skills!
You have the option to upgrade to a zipper binder pouch. Pouch fits into a 3-ring binder to keep all your activities organized and together. Make your own busy book! All documents and supplies fit inside the zippered pouch. Please note: Binder pouch colors vary if you choose the upgraded binder pouch option. You might get pink, blue,orange or any other color. If you have a specific request of colors you don't like you can add that to the buyers notes and I will try and accommodate.
*******I AM UPGRADING MY PATTERN CARDS********
This set contains professionally printed cards that are printed on 100# cardstock. These have 5mil lamination and are thick and durable!!!!
If you are ordering other sets, please note that some others use 80# cardstock with 3mil lamination until my stock gone. Although these are very durable, they will not be as thick as my new ones.
Busy bags are little self-contained educational activities that are easy to pack or pull out in an emergency. You can pop them in your diaper bag and pull them out when going out to eat, when there is a delay, or when you need a few uninterrupted minutes. Just pull out the activity and let your kids have fun.
These bags contain small parts that may not be appropriate for children under the age of 3. Adult supervision is required.
