Penguin Math Printable: Making Patterns

Our latest math activity was inspired by the book, Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester.  Did you know penguins like wearing bow-ties?  Well, Tacky and his penguin friends do!  Your preschooler will have fun working on making patterns by giving each penguin a colorful pipe cleaner bow-tie!

To prep our Penguin Patterns Activity, you'll need:

Prior the activity, you will need to cut several colored pipe cleaners into 1 inch pieces.  Then you will cut those 1 inch pieces in half and twist them together to get a bow-tie like shape.  These will be your bow-tie manipulatives to create patterns on our penguin printable.

If your child is just beginning to work on patterns, begin the pattern yourself on each penguin pattern strip and have your child complete the pattern.

If your child understands patterns, let him/her create the patterns on their own using the pipe cleaner bow-ties.

Have fun making patterns with our penguin themed math printable inspired by Tacky the Penguin.
