November is in full swing which means that we are filling our time with Thanksgiving learning and play activities! I’ve been meaning to teach my son Loopy (3.5 yrs) about patterns, but never got around to it till now. Inspiration struck this week when I saw the abundance of felt in our craft closet. What a fun way to introduce pattern play!

This took less than five minutes to create.
I didn’t have any brown felt, so I just colored some white felt with a brown marker. No need to make a run to the store! Score!
I cut out my version of a circle, then Loopy helped me glue eyes and a beak on for a face. I chose to keep things simple by only cutting out two feather colors. My toddler, Lumpy, is starting to get interested in colors, so first we started with a red turkey and a yellow turkey.
Then I started to explain simple patterns to Loopy. He jumped right in!
Here are a couple of the patterns. Make them easier or harder depending on your child’s experience and ability.
