I like using seasonal and fun things like candy canes to teach about things that I want Sean Patrick to learn or to practice.
Sean Patrick is familiar with patterns and he likes to finger-paint a lot, but he still needs a lot of practice so we are still working with AB patterns.
So, we are going to finish these patterns by taking turns.
For the first candy cane I will paint one color and he will paint the next.
Then, we will switch for the second candy cane. He will paint with the color I used the first time, and then I will paint with the other color.
Finally, I am going to ask him if he wants to make up another pattern on a blank template.
Here is a short video of us painting our second template – it is spur of the moment iPhone videoing so you get to see the real-life clip of our flighty pattern painting moment.
