Creating patterns is like a guessing game .I use different shapes of foam stickers to make patterns. Ashrith guesses what comes next and finishes the pattern.
Foam stickers (Used CREATOLOGY shapes stickers tub from MICHAELS store)
Create a pattern like a circle foam sticker then square sticker, again a circle and ask your child what comes next and complete the pattern. If you see the picture above, I have few patterns made with different foam stickers .Depending on the age and ability of the kid you can make more complex patterns.Therefore,Pattern making is a perfect activity for kids to develop motor skills and use their imagination as well.
