Preschool Math Activity: Snack Math!


Hello There! Welcome to my site. Today I thought I would share a super fun idea I completed with my son the other day! A preschool math activity that kids will really have fun with is not always easy to come up with, so when I got this idea, I thought it would be nice to do a quick post.

I love talking about crafts and sharing ideas on how to make learning fun and simple, so if you want even more great finds, check out my posts on inspiring your child to love learning and a great post on learning boards.

So this is obviously not rocket science, but this is what we did to complete the activity!

  1. I grabbed one of my larger sized blank pieces of white paper. ( I would use a larger white paper to make it easier. The more space you have for snacks, the better)
  2. I drew out an are for addition and subtraction. Be sure to leave enough room for the snacks and enough room after the equal sign.
  3. Then I had my son pick the snacks to use! (soo optional, I was ready to take over if he didn’t pick the right snacks lol)
  4. Then I proceeded to set up equations and have him answer them in snacks. He also began making his own equations. Check the video below 🙂
  5. That’s it. Be creative and have fun!

    This is a very beautiful idea. You know, I never thought of anything this close before. The truth is that some kids tend to be very sad when it comes to maths but if it can be spiced up then I guess there shouldn’t be a lot of problem. Sis really did enjoy learning this. I have to use this technique on my little niece. Thanks a lot.

    Being creative is one thing that comes in handy when teaching maths to kids and especially one’s kids. This us really a great idea that I feel would really be beneficial to the kids so far there is proper planning and all to it. I actually like the suggestion in here as most kids would be drawn to it. I will give it a trial with my kids too and let you know of the outcome. Thanks
