Recognizing different types of
patterns is a hard concept learn for children to learn, so why
not put patterns right at their fingertips? For example, if
you’re working on simple patterns, alternate blue and yellow “Piggy
Paint” on her fingers. As you go through the day, help her to make
patterns with her toys, M&M‘s, crayons, beads…use your
creativity. Have her refer to her fingernails for help. Start
out with color patterns and then attempt other categories, such
as big doll, little doll, big doll, etc. Ready for harder
patterns? Move to three different colors or alternate pink,
purple, purple, pink, and so on.
Does your daughter play
any sports? Perhaps she has a favorite high school, collegiate,
or professional team she cheers for. If so, paint her nails with
her team’s colors to show her support.
