Fish Patterns

What You Need:

  • Construction paper
  • White paper
  • Markers
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue

What You Do:

  1. Help your child draw the outline of a fish on a sheet of white paper. Try to make it as large as possible to fill the page.
  2. Have your child cut the fish out of the paper.
  3. Encourage him to divide the fish up with lines. Within each of these shapes he creates with his lines will be a different pattern.
  4. Ask your child to name as many patterns as he can think of before he begins drawing. Some of these patterns may include: Zig-zags, polka dots, plaid, stripes, argyle, diamonds, and geometric patterns.
  5. Have him use markers to create a completely different pattern in each section of the fish. They can be as colorful and complex as he likes.
  6. Glue the patterned fish to a solid sheet of construction paper and hang it on a wall to help remember the variety of patterns that your child can create!
