Free Printable Mini Idea Book for Pattern Blocks
Do you have pattern blocks? They are pretty fun and have loads of educational potential. If you want to get a set here is an affiliate link to a nice 250 piece wooden set from Learning Resources through Amazon (thanks for supporting Doodles and Jots). If you already have a set but maybe haven’t played with it in a while I created a printable booklet to help renew your interest. I am hoping it will renew my own kids’ interest! In the booklet I tried to cover some of the broad uses with a more fine focus on some mathematical concepts which I think are a great place to take pattern blocks especially as kids get a little older. Most of the pages have just one or two examples but they are meant to inspire continued exploration.
Print the following PDF: Pattern Blocks Printable at actual size then fold according to these pocket-mod instructions…
I like to take pictures of my kids pattern block creations. I love their proud faces here and here! I also love this turtle and this three dimensional structure. Way to push the envelope guys! Share your pattern block creations with the hashtag #patternblockparty and maybe we can have a little fun on Instagram!
