One of the last activities that we enjoyed during out Jack and the Beanstalk unit, was using the characters and objects from the story to create and practice patterns.
This is such a simple activity and one that you can use in so many different ways to practice all levels of patterning.
Whether your little one is just getting started on patterns or is a pattern pro at this point, these Jack and the Beanstalk pieces make it super easy to practice or review and are a lot of fun when you pair them with the story as well.
The printable page contains one of each piece, so just print off as many pages as you would like and cut out the squares to start building your patterns!
You could also try adding magnets to them if you worry about losing the little pieces all over the place. We actually found this to be a little easier for little hands anyway. Just laminate the pieces and stick a self-adhesive magnet on the back of them and they’ll work perfectly on a cookie sheet or the refrigerator.
However you use them, try pairing them with the story or another one of our activities for a whole Jack and the Beanstalk themed day!
