I just love popsicles. Love them.
And if you have to teach a new skill to a child, it’s never a bad idea to add a popsicle or two. Or ten.
So when it was time to teach our kids about how to make basic AABB and ABAB math patterns, I thought it would be fun to make an ice pop themed math patterns activity.
Guess what? Our kids loved it!
So I’m sharing it with all of you today!
If you’re teaching basic math patterns to early learners, this popsicle math pattern activity is wonderful for making this concept into a hands-on math lesson!

Ice Pop Math Patterns Activity
This math activity is perfect for early grades students who are learning how to recognize and complete AABB and ABAB math patterns!
This 25-page product includes:
- Pattern pieces in two different color schemes
- Pattern templates to complete
- Incomplete pattern cards for kids to finish
- And a set of instructions!
But I love to use it with hook and loop dots, because then I can use them over and over again.
If you cut the pattern cards into strips, you can even make this activity into a busy bag! Just laminate the strips and pattern pieces and let kids practice completing the patterns anywhere!
