Years and years ago, Baloo asked me to make addition with candy corn so I did, and he loved it. Its one of those things that we pull out every single year and enjoy. Royal and Logi-Bear love it now too, but Baloo is well beyond that. But he still loves Candy Corn (he’s crazy, although I do confess that I will eat candy corn if it’s there). So I thought a fun multiplication pack would be great. Even better, a no prep candy corn multiplication pack. I love having an option that I can simply print and go. And he loves that I bribe him with candy corn.
There’s 5 pages in this no prep set that range from simple and beginning multiplication to a higher level. I only have one doing multiplication this year, but next year I will have two! But they’ll be on different levels so it’ll be nice to have different pages for them both.
How to Use No Prep Candy Corn Multiplication Pack
Roll, spin, and solve. The idea is to roll a die and use the column for the number rolled. Then spin to find the 3 digit number. Finally, solve the problem you’ve created! This creates a bit of excitement and ancipation and also gives the child some control over their work.
Grouping and repeated addition. This is a younger page and great for illustrating the benefits of multiplication. You can use candy corn as manipulatives for this page – or not! Just fill out the number of groups and number in each group. Then write out the equation and solve!
This is my favorite page – the cross word. All of the options for equations are listed (in the correct order). First, solve each problem in the equation bank. Then fill in the crossword!
I worked really hard to make the image in this Color by Multiplication to not be too obvious. I still see it clearly, but I made it. Hopefully it’s not as clear to others! There are 7 different equations to solve and then color.
I think the candy corn turned out pretty cute! The purple and green outline are supposed to be a bit “Halloween-y”.
Candy Corn BINGO. There are two game boards on this page, each to be used with two regular dice. Just roll, cover the answer, and write down the equation on the side. This can be played solo or with a partner. The game is won where someone gets 4 in a row!
