My preschooler Anna LOVES having activities set up that she can do on her own. I love it, also, because it allows me to get work done at home. We have always had pattern blocks, which my kids have typically played with free style. Anna enjoys that some, but it isn’t as fun on her own. I play with her sometimes, but other times I have things that need to get done. I found this particularly cute set of pattern block templates, which I then laminated for better durability. Anna LOVES them! Seven-year-old Lily sometimes joins her after school.

Pattern Block Preschool Fun – Educational Benefits

Pattern block play is wonderful for building fine motor skills and inspiring children with ideas of different ways to use the blocks. Creative pattern block templates like this one are wonderful for inspiring storytelling as children play, also!

    My 10 year old is still pulling out her pattern blocks sometimes to trace them and make abstract design drawings. They are a great manipulative to have!

  2. Oh that is a cute set of designs! She will be able to move on to copying then when her blocks aren’t directly on the pattern, as well.
