A tessellation is a shape that when repeated, fits together without gaps. M. C. Escher created some pretty amazing and complex ones. I love this one of fish I saw on the LeapFrog site so much it inspired me to make my own. Luckily they included instructions! I created a pattern of leprechauns and turned it into a PDF coloring page for St. Paddy’s Day: leprechaun tessellation printable
How do you think I did? My daughter loves it and has requested more coloring pages from Doodles and Jots. Maybe I will create a bunny tessellation next but in the meantime why not head on over to the LeapFrog site and trying making your own!
