Fall Patterns (+ FREE Download)

This was a completely accidental activity that turned into something really fun & festive (and of course educational).  Don't you love those kinds of accidents?! I have been doing a lot of fall themed activities with Dutch, and I have been meaning to review patterns again but we keep running out of time.  The other day all of our fall items were pulled out & it just hit me that I should use these to practice patterns again.  Yes it seems obvious but it took a couple cups of coffee to become apparent to me :-/Fall Pattern Practice- Life with the HawleysHawley Homeschool

I already had this pattern set downloaded because we used it in the spring (I want to say that I already blogged about it.  But, if I didn't I meant to lol).  It's really versatile so go ahead and download it here!

I already had all of these little fall items in my box of fall decorations but I'm sure you could find things like these at Hobby Lobby or Michael's.  I used felt acorns, plastic pumpkins, acorns & leaves.  I started the patterns & let Dutch finish them, and then I let him create some patterns for me to finish.  It was really fun and he enjoyed it. He really liked to play teacher for me heheDSC_0448DSC_0451

Isn't that such a fan hands-on activity to practice patterns while talking about fall?  Try it with your little one & let me know what y'all think :-)
