Candy Corn Math ~ Patterns

Candy Corn Patterns

When I first saw the giant bag of Candy Corn Harvest Mix  sorting the bag and making patterns are actually the first things that came to my mind.  So I gave Emily three empty apple sauce cups and had her sort the candy corn.  Then we had fun working on creating all different patterns with our candy corn.

We worked on ABA and ABBA patterns this time.  After I made a few Emily decided that she would make some for me to try.  It was fun taking turns and trying out different patterns with our candy corn.  Of course we had fun eating a few pieces once we were all finished too :0)

Check out other great ideas for Tots and Preschoolers:

I love that you saw the bag of candy and automatically thought of creating a pattern activity :)

This has to be one of the most enjoyable and yummy ways I've seen to learn about making patterns.

It's so wonderful to buy an item, like your bag of candy corn, and get several different activities out of it- Yahoo for Candy Corn!

Not sure I could keep my daughter interested in the activities and not just eating all the candy corn! But very cute ideas. Have to pick up a bag from the store today.
