I love finding fun ways to add learning into our activities.  Today we got a pack of Easter gummies out of the pantry and put them to good use.  Gummies Math was a big hit with the older kids.  Even baby brother enjoyed sneaking a gummy off the table.  My older boys are 3.5yr and 6yr.  I also love that you can use this as a simple counting game or make it harder by using addition and subtraction.  We had a lot of fun playing our math game and look forward to playing it again.

What we did/ how to play:

 

I put a large poster board down to protect the table from getting sticky as well as for better pictures.   You can use a tray or a placemat if you wish.  I dumped the bag of gummies on to the poster board.  Little brother was up first and could not wait  to start.  We started out with him rolling the dice.  He would count out what number he rolled.  He did this a few times.  Then after he rolled a new number I had him add or subtract to get the new number.  Later he even sat down and color sorted them.  Good thinking little brother mommy didn’t think of that.

Gummies math has so many possibilities and is easy to adjust for different age levels.  I love that you can grab leftover holiday candy and use it up in a learning activity the kids will enjoy.  The kids did taste a few gummies but now they are in a ziploc bag and we will not eat them.  They are now for playing and learning with only.  We have a few more ideas for them.  Come back and see how else we put them to use for learning and playing.
