Shapes Pattern Headband Craft

Pin It


This is a math concepts craft lesson my daughter did. We were teaching about shapes and patterns. She made some recurring patterns with foam shapes, then glued them on a paper strip for a headband.

Materials:

  • construction paper
  • foam shapes
  • glue
  • scissors
  • stapler

Directions:

  1. Beforehand, cut 2 strips about 4 inches wide down the long side of a sheet of construction paper. Lay the strips end to end and staple together to make one long strip. Make one for each student.
  2. Give students foam shapes and demonstrate making repeating patterns like: square, triangle, square, triangle...Have students try with the shapes. Later have them try to make a pattern with three shapes.
  3. Let them glue their finished patterns on the paper strip.
  4. Check the fit around their head and staple into a loop. Have them wear their new shape headbands.
