- 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.
