Count That Candy!

Now that you have more candy then needed, what are you going to do with it all?!?! Before you eat it or toss it, make it into a math activity. Counting it all is the most simple of the activities.

Take it one step further, and group them. Make piles of 2s, 5s, or 10s and then practice counting by those numbers.


Sort like candy by color, and count the groups.

Measure the candy! How long is a candybar? A sucker? A Tootsie Roll? Put them in order from largest to smallest.

The possibilities are endless. So, next time your child wants a piece of candy, have her work for that sugar!
