  • Colored Card Stock
  • White card stock
  • Black card stock


STEP 1: Go to the website Incompetech (http://incompetech.com/graphpaper/tumblingblock/) and create a tumbling block page.  I used Line Weight 2 and Block Size 2.5 and Color black.  I used this sheet to copy the outline onto white card stock and also colored card stock.

STEP 2: Cut out the shapes (diamonds) from the colored card stock. (I did this)

STEP 3: Instruct the children to create a pattern using different colored diamonds and paste them onto the white card stock.

STEP 4: You can then cut out the pattern and mount into black paper for effect.
