Candy Cane Patterns

A quick, simple and fun learning activity!
I cut a candy cane shape from cardboard. Then, I cut some red and green pipe cleaners into ~1.5 inch pieces.
I would start a pattern on the candy cane and let Little Mister finish it. We tried several different repeating patterns, like:
Red, Green
Red, Red, Green
Green, Red, Green
You get the idea!

He had fun and then......
An elf in a 4-wheeler showed up and ruined everything!
Merry Christmas!
