Tessellation Busy Bag

When I was in year 8, I remember going on an art trip to see an exhibition on tessellation. It was absolutely fascinating, especially Escher’s lizard tessellation. I’ve always loved repeating patterns, but the intricate details of these more complex patterns were something else. Fast forward 20 years, sigh, and I thought it would be fun to create a tessellation busy bag for EC and YC. They are both really into exploring different art forms at the moment, so hopefully this will be right up their ally.

Make sure you follow my busy bag board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own tessellation busy bag you will need:

I’ve made a tessellation pdf for you to download and cut out.

Just in case you were wondering what tessellation is, it is “an arrangement of shapes closely fitted together, especially of polygons in a repeated pattern without gaps or overlapping”.

There are a few ways that you could do this busy bag. You can either make stencils, using the pdf, and let them draw around them. Or you could print out a few copies of the pdf, cut them out, and create your own jigsaw. Your little ones can then colour each of the pieces in.

If you enjoyed this tessellation busy bag then be sure to check out my zentangles busy bag and glue gun rubbings busy bag.
