I was amazed at his ability to fit them together as if they were a puzzle.
With my assistance, we created some simple patterns within the larger design - it was a great opportunity for me to discuss the shapes, colours, and sizes of the pieces.
The best surprise of all however was when the mid-afternoon sun illuminated the artwork, sending colours dancing all over the floor as well. Caleb loved to step in and out of the colours, inspiring another dimension to our conversation about sunlight and coloured pattern blocks!
What a fun way to replicate, extend, and explore patterns!
