How’s your summer going so far? We are having so much fun between vacations, play dates with friends, BBQ’s and pool time. One thing that I love to do for my kids during their
break is to make sure to keep fresh in their mind what they learned in the past school year. I want them to start back on the right foot, confident and ready to gain more knowledge!
They know that every day they need to read for a certain amount of time, and then I try to have fun and simple learning activities at-the-ready for them to do afterwards. My six-year-old daughter just finished kindergarten and LOVES math! She gets so excited when she gets to add! So, I came up with a fun game for her to play where she can roll two dice, find the sum, then use a fruit snack to cover the balloon that matches with it. She was all smiles!
We are crazy for Welch’s Fruit Snacks at our house! We love every variety out there! I knew they’d be the perfect markers for this activity. Because what kid doesn’t love to snack while they’re learning?!
I appreciate that fruit is the 1st ingredient, You can taste the difference in every delicious bite! I know because I had to help myself to a few while I was overseeing the activity. I felt it was my right and obligation. 🙂
If at first my kids aren’t excited about learning over their summer vacation, I have a secret weapon that I know will always draw them in. All I had to tell my daughter was that there would be Welch’s Fruit Snacks and she came running like she was out to win a race. 🙂
She was a fan of this fun balloon math game too! I love how simple yet effective it is. Kids get to practice their addition skills while snacking and feeling like they’re having play time. If I can trick my kids into learning, I will. 🙂
We even took it outside to the picnic table because the weather was just so gorgeous! My kids want to be outdoors whenever possible, so I figured why not do math in the sunshine?
Snack time plus educational time equals kid heaven! The experience is even more memorable when it’s yummy too! I’ve found that to be true with my kids!
Be sure to use this handy locator to find Welch’s Fruit Snacks at a store near you!
The goal of the game is to cover all the floating balloons! If a duplicate is rolled, feel free to place more than one fruit snack on or near that balloon! Once they’re all covered, the game is
over. Clear the board and start again if you’re up for more math fun! Or just enjoy the tasty treasures!
