Candy Corn. The one candy that almost no one likes! Yet, it’s widely popular this time of year. I have never really been a fan but the boys do love it. I mean, it’s basically sugar, a lot of cruddy stuff, and food coloring. But Baloo specifically requested candy corn school and I rarely turn down a request for more school!! We have some math skills we are working on so I put together a fun candy corn math pack!
I wanted to highlight a few things in the pack! Doubles addition candy corn puzzles. I put doubles from 1-10 in there! Essentially the top and middle combined equal the bottom. I just did doubles though because that’s something we are working on!
All together now!
This book by Kevin Henkes is adorable. Julius eats all the candy corn off the top of his cupcakes and it’s kind of endearing.
This estimation activity is always a hit! Start by having your child guess how many they can pick up. Then have them grab a BIG handful and see if they can estimate how many is actually in their hand. Finally, count what they actually picked up! At the bottom are some subtraction problems to figure out how close they were!
It would be fun to have multiple people complete this and compare their answers! Who has the biggest hands? Who grabbed the most? How many more did they grab?
Addition with Candy Corn Math Packs
Basic addition is always more fun when candy is included. We just matched the real candy corn to the images on the page. Much more entertaining! And of course, they got to a eat a few as well.
What’s in the Candy Corn Math pack?
I hope you enjoy!
