With summer in full swing, we are always looking for toddler busy bags and easy car activities to take on vacation. What better way to celebrate this season than with themed ice cream activities? Our Ice Cream Pattern Cards are such a fun way to practice patterns! The best thing about them is that you can customize them to match whatever dry erase markers you own. Below are affiliate links for your convenience.
Simply print out as many sets of cards as you want to create and color the guides at the bottom right of each card. Cut out the cards, laminate them, and cut them out again.
I added a hole to each card so that we could connect them to a book ring. This turns the cards into an excellent activity for traveling in the car or through airports! Simply give your child the cards and dry erase markers and let them practice creating the pattern shown in the guides.
Rilynn honestly thought this was a fun coloring activity and had no idea she was learning in the process. This is one of the easiest (and travel-friendly!) activities I’ve found to encourage pattern practice with toddlers.
