Penrose Tessellations

Penrose Tessellations
How many different patterns can you make with just two simple shapes? The amazing thing about these colourful foam shapes is that they can be arranged in a seemingly limitless number of ways. Children can make patterns of their own on the table or even the wall thanks to the shapes’ clever magnetic backing. They can practise copying patterns or, for those who want a real challenge, try covering the whole table without leaving any spaces - a great way to introduce the idea of tessellation.
