Yummy Patterning!

Monday was a wet, rainy day.  I had planned on taking the girls to the zoo’s splash pad but instead we hung out at home and played together.  I decided to do a patterning activity with M&M’s.  What kid doesn’t love any math activity where eating chocolate is involved.

I gave them each a bowl full of M&M’s and a paper that had eggs on it.  I was using it the following week in my class for my dinosaur theme.  They had to place the M&M’s on the eggs to create a pattern.   Once they created their pattern they had to color the eggs to match their pattern. Here is what they came up with.

Their favorite part was of course eating the M&M’s at the end.
