Pattern Bugs by Trudy Harris is one of my two year old's new favorite books. He really enjoyed when I shared Pattern Fishwith him, so I knew that this book was going to be a treat. It surprises me how many of the patterns that he can complete throughout the book.
After reading Pattern Bugs over and over at his request, I created a pattern bug game. I printed out multiple copies of a matching game on card stock that I found at Busy Bees Kids' Printables.
I picked out different bugs and made them into patterns. The pattern below is a simple AB pattern that repeats. I asked LM what came next. Because of his age (27 months), he was a little distracted by the cards and wanted to pick them up and play with them. Maybe a better activity for preschool and above.
