Paper Plate Patterns 

Cut up a paper plate into quarters and see how many patterns you can make.

What you’ll need:

Paper plates
Something to decorate with (we used pastel chalks but you can use paints, felt pens, pencils, crayons, inks…)

What to do:

Starting from the centre of the paper plate, draw circles in different colours all the way round to the outside, like the rings on a tree log.

Repeat with different colours on a few plates.

Cut each plate into quarters.

Start playing and see how many different patterns you can make.

This is a great activity to learn about whole, halves and quarters.
