Patterns are one of those activities that are so much fun for learning through play!
I love creating a fun and simple activity that involves a bit of play to learn.
And, when it comes to pattern activities for preschool and kindergarten, I like to create a fun way to learn about AABB, AAB, ABB patterns.
I’ll share below how exactly I put this simple apple pattern activity together below.

Pad of paper
Craft apples or real apples (red and green)
Sharpies or Markers
Apple Kindergarten Patterns
If you are looking for counting apples worksheet activities, definitely check out our printable shop and search “apple printables”.
For this simple activity, I simple drew circles on a paper pad making sure I left the last one open so my LO can learn which pattern comes next.
For example, if we are working on AABB, then I drew 4 circles making sure two red apples went in the AA circles and two green apples went in the BB circles.
Then, leave the last circle open so your LO can add the correct colored apple that comes next to complete the pattern.
You can try this same pattern activity with AAB and ABB patterns.
Or, you can create a new pattern and work on that specific pattern as well.
For a more advanced approach, try new patterns that are a bit more advanced as your LO grows.
I also used a green and red sharpie to create the circles so my LO can see which apple pattern she was working with.
Then, the last circle was a black sharpied in circle so she can think and add in the one that comes next! 🙂
Easy peasy, right?
First, I created the circles with less circles.
Then, I made a different apple pattern game with a bit more circles.
You can do this in a less advanced approach and a more advanced approach.
Build it up to workin on more advanced patterns and that is the beauty about this simple DIY apple pattern activity ..
You can create it in whatever way for the specific age appropriate for your little!
