This is another fun activity that teaches while they play.
It doesn't look like Math, but it is!
Patterns and sequencing are very important to a little math mind.
For this activity, all you need is a print out of a candy cane...like this one, and construction paper in red and white cut in squares.
Explain that candy canes have a pattern...red, white, red, white, red, white. Then they get to use their fine motor coordination and their math brains and build a candy cane!
We also happened to be talking about the letter "J" this same week...so we handed out candy canes and told them to turn it upside down to find a letter. :)
