Make a Patterned Belt
In kindergarten, kids practice patterns … the more the better! Categorizing seeds and beans will work, and weaving helps too … but here’s a practical piece of clothing you can make with your child that can’t help but be fun.
Although this activity uses plastic jewels and flower shapes, it can be easily adapted to work for boys, too: just substitute different shapes and materials such as beads and star shapes.
What You Need:
- Clear plastic kids’ belt
- Small, flat glue-on “jewels”
- Plastic vinyl (available at fabric and craft stores), in 3-4 colors
- Craft glue (check the bottle to make sure it works on plastic)
