Wanna work on some math? Let kids measure and scoop.
I was just thinking about putting out some of my kids fave snacks and then having a recipe? So that they can practice looking at the measuring cups and seeing what ¼, ⅓, ½, 3/4 , and 1 cup look like. Just having them read the fractions and then see that ¼ is smaller than ½ etc is good practice. Write out something on a piece of paper (using what you have in your pantry) and make them read + follow recipe:
- 1 cup chex mix (cheerios etc)
- 1 cup pretzels
- ½ raisins
- ⅓ m&ms
- ½ cup mini marshmallows
- ⅓ peanuts (or allergy friendly alternative)
Mix it up and enjoy!
