Creative Math Art for Kindergarten

We found patterns and shapes in grids.

Coloring grids can be a creative learning experience for little kids. Graph paper works well, but grids constructed from circles create a unique twist.

In the photo below it's easy to see crescents, four pointed flowers and four pointed stars. When additional straight lines are used to connect points in the grid its possible to create rectangles, squares and many more shapes.

Allowing kids free time to color shapes as they see fit helps them increase their pattern recognition skills in an enjoyable way. Here's a link from a previous post which contains this free grid.
