Practice hand-eye coordination, problem-solving, logical thinking, and more with these fun printable dinosaur pattern block mats.
Pattern block mats are an awesome way to get kids thinking about math without even knowing it.
They help with problem-solving, logic, hand-eye coordination, sorting, counting, comparing and so much more.
A while back we created some pattern block mats for my kids and they were a hit! Both my kids asked me to do them more than once, which means a lot in my house.
My 3-year-old loves them so much he plays with them about once a week!
Since these pattern block mats were obviously getting good use, we created these dinosaur ones to add to our collection.
Also, be sure to check out all of our dinosaur activities for more crafts, printables, and activities.
Printable Pattern Block Mats
We love using pattern block mats at home because it’s mess-free, entertaining and perfect for quiet time. All you need are few supplies and you’ll be set.
- Pattern blocks
- White cardstock
- Dinosaur tangram mats
- Laminator (optional, but recommended if you plan to reuse them)
- Laminating pouches (optional, but recommended if you plan to reuse them)
There are almost endless ways to use pattern blocks but I find my kids really enjoy using pattern block mats. Right now, both my boys are into dinosaurs so I created these dinosaur mats for them.
They’re perfect for filling some empty time in your day and use with little ones who are working on their fine motor skills.
If you homeschool or are a teacher, these dinosaur pattern block mats would be a great supplement to a dinosaur study unit.
There are three different sets of dinosaur mats available. One in full color with background, one in full color with a white background (to save on ink), and one in black and white that your kids can color before they use them as pattern block mats.
Whatever way you use them, I’m sure your kids will have a blast!
