We love the Jet-Puffed Mallows by Kraft for Yummies in our Tummies and for learning fun. The ones above are the Spring version. They are shaped like bunnies and come in green, purple, yellow, and pink. Great for fun sorting and graphing; as well as eating! I have found them at Target and my grocery store (Giant Eagle). Sometimes they go quickly; so, I try to grab them when I first see them in early March.
My six year old and three year old love this not only to eat but for learning fun… Well, they just think it is fun and I know they are leaning. I created three activity sheets to use with these Mallows. My daughter can complete the sorting sheet pretty independently and my six year old can do the sorting and graphing sheet pretty independently. There is a third sheet for first to second graders that involves adding up small numbers.
This is a fun themed snack and your kiddos may pick up some sorting and graphing skills along the way.
