Good morning all! I don’t know about you, but we’re having a warm December so far. It’s been in the 40’s-60’s for weeks with no end in sight yet. For Denver, Colorado, that’s warm. Don’t get me wrong, I like the nice weather… I just want to add a little cold and snow in here and there. 🙂
This week in preschool we’re working on lots of things for Christmas, but one is patterns particularly with Candy Canes. Last week I posted a candy cane painting project. Today we’re making Candy Cane patterns using construction paper. It’s great fine motor building for their little fingers to have to pick up tiny bits of paper. We made these cuties!
For the 3 year olds we keep the patterns simple using ABAB.
First print out my Candy Cane Pattern Printable here: Candy Cane PDF. There are two on a page.
Secondly add a strip of glue over the candy cane shape and ask your kids to create a pattern using small bits of paper.
For the Pre-K Students their patterns got a little more complicated!
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
