Tube Pattern Matching

In this giant pattern matching activity your toddler will match washi tape tubes with the correct washi tape circles on the box.


  • Cardboard box
  • 10-14 paper towel, toilet paper or wrapping rolls
  • Washi tape

Set up:

Line both ends of the rolls with different patterned washi tape. I had her help me with this part (extending the activity). Then use box cutters to cut out circles (I traced the end of the rolls to give me a rough estimate of how big to make the holes. You don’t want the holes too big then the rolls will just go all the way through. Line the holes with the same washi used for the rolls.

Then introduce the activity to your toddler or baby. Model for them what you would like them to do.

  4. So glad to have found your blog. I have been looking for more activities for our 16 month old to do as we go through the winter months

      16 months is such a fun age! But yes it’s a bit hard to take them out in the cold and snow! I have lots of activities he/she will enjoy!
