Preschool Activity: Bead Patterns

The bead patterns activity bag is a popular one around here. It works on fine motor development (getting those little beads on the stem) and math skills (pattern recognition) at the same time as being lots of fun. In the bag are some pattern beads made of pony beads on chenille stems. I hot glued the beads on to make them permanent.
I also included some plain chenille stems and some pony beads to imitate the patterns already made or to make a different pattern. At this point my 3-year-old just gets those beads on the stem any old which way and the patterning will come when it comes.
