Pattern Design Activities for Kids
by Don McCunn
Introduction to the Basics
For the projects described here, you need a copy of the Master Pattern and a glass wine bottle or a cardboard bottle of the same shape. If you are using a glass bottle, the neck should be shaped like the illustration below. If you are using a cardboard bottle, it can be made from a cardboard shipping box or colored craft cardboard. The Master Pattern and the pattern for the cardboard bottle can be printed or hand drawn.
These web pages describe how to make the projects from different materials.
