Halloween Math Fun!

Halloween candy is not just for eating! My kids LOVE to sort their candy into piles by category and then they trade each other for their favorite candies. My youngest child is learning to multiply so he put his candy into a grid pattern and worked on his multiplication. He was able to quickly multiply the number of candy that he has by type and then in total. Sorting and counting Halloween candy is a fun way to sneak in some math in to your child's day. Have fun!
