Thanks to Amy at Let's Explore for this great tangram activity and links! To make this activity I printed the small tangram pattern and used it to cut tangrams out of craft foam. I put magnets on the backs of the pieces, so they would stay in place and be less frustrating for my girl. I printed the animal tangram pics, laminated them, cut them, and hooked them together using a book ring. Everything fit nicely in a zipper pouch. O is a little young (almost 3) to do tangrams on her own, but we've had fun doing it together. I'm planning on taking this activity on our upcoming beach trip.
