It's FREEBIE FRIDAY!  As promised, here is an activity that you can do with your kids using the "too many toys" bin that you created.

The attached file is a pattern board using pictures of blocks.  The pattern that is free to print is an AB pattern.  Use these pattern boards to teach your child what an AB pattern is and how to complete it.  There is also a blank pattern board so that you can use the toys in your "too many toys" bin to create a pattern.  You could make a pattern with colors (blue car, red ball, blue block, red car), size (big item, small item, big item, small item), etc.  Make sure to be clear what you are patterning (size, color, shape, etc).  

Also, don't forget that you can create harder patterns:  ABB, AAB, ABC, ABBC, ... the list goes on and on!  This is as GREAT skill to teach your child.  Happy patterning!!!
