Beads for Making Patterns or as a Boredom Buster

This is my (I mean my kids') new favorite toy.  Okay, I have a confession to make.  Sometimes I buy toys because they look like so much fun!  Look at those bright colors.  Who could resist?

After deciding that I had to buy this toy from Target, I next needed to rationalize this purchase.  (I could use this for school.  Yeah.  That's a good excuse).  

They are really great for making patterns.  The goal was to secretly open the package when no one was looking and then sneak it to school as a math pattern practice center.

What was I thinking?  That was not going to happen.  My kids absolutely LOVE the beads, and each day they play with them.  

Maybe next time huh?
