I slapped magnets on the backside of the cutouts. Then I used these colorful bears on my magnet board to create color patterns during storytime. I made patterns such as
Red, Red, Yellow, Blue, Red, Red, Yellow, Blue, etc.
Yellow, Red, Blue, Yellow, Yellow, Red, Blue, Yellow, etc.
Of course, I kept the patterns pretty basic. I only had a finite number of bears to use while repeating the pattern.
These bears make a great addition to my flannelboard repertoire. They worked out beautifully to introduce the math concept of patterns to my toddler storytime crowd.
