Hands On Gem Patterns

Hands On Gem Patterns by 3Dinosaurs.com


After doing the Gem Wreath the other day. My middle girl really wanted to do something with the gems. I put a simple pattern set together for her to finish. She loved it.

What you need: green gem stones, red gem stones and paper so they show up. (This would also be fun on a light table.)

The patterns are AB, AABB, BAA, and ABB.

Amelia was given simple patterns and told to complete the patterns. Where she started was up to her. She decided to match up each row as she went. She completed the first two patterns and then worked on the rest. She would say the pattern as she went. It was lots of fun for her to do. We ended up doing this twice. She stood up in the middle of the first time doing it and all the gems slide off the paper. She was upset but enjoyed doing the activity.

    I haven’t dabbled in the glass gem activities – still worried one may get lost and baby would get a hold of it, but all your cute ideas may just have me convinced to give them a go!

      I count the gems each time I get them back! It is lot of fun for the girls and me! I did not post about it but we used some for hanukkah stuff as well

    This is a great activity for a number of skills! Not only do you get the fine motor work in, but it also is wonderful for addressing visual-perceptual skills. I’m a big fan of any activity that helps children in a number of areas all at the same time. And the best part is that it’s fun and relevant to the holiday season!

    I will definitely have to try this with the children on my caseload! Thanks for sharing!
