Travel Busy Bag - Magnetic Cube Patterns
This learning activity takes learning on the go. This busy bag is a great way to practice patterning while sharpening their visual discrimination skills.
Kids need to match the pattern on the cards with colored foam magnetic cubes. Pair this with a cookie sheet for learning fun on the go. (COOKIE SHEET NOT INCLUDED) The bag comes with 10 double-sided laminated pattern cards professionally printed on 100# card stock. Each card can be rotated in all 4 directions for extra puzzles, so this bag includes 80 different challenges! I have 2 different levels of difficulties. The easy cards are for beginners. These patterns only have 5 cubes used at once. You can limit the number of cubes you have out to help them. The advanced cards use 10 cubes for each pattern.
This bag also includes 20 magnetic .5" foam cubes
Kids can just recreate the patterns, or they can build the pattern off the cards to repeat the pattern.
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!
*******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.
