How to Play Our Christmas Patterning and Sequencing Game

When the player starts the game, they will see a quick introduction to how to play. Click or tap the red arrow button to start playing.

The game presents the player with a series of images. They have to select the correct image to complete the series.

When they’ve chosen which image completes the series, drag it onto the empty space on the right hand side. If they’re correct, they’ll see a successful message and move on to a new series.

If they’re wrong, however, they’ll lose one of their lives. The number of lives they have is represented by the love hearts at the top right. If they lose all of these hearts, the game will end.

Each time the player correctly completes a pattern, they’ll win a small festive smiley face at the top left of the screen.
