It’s summer and as moms we are looking for ways to keep our kids’ minds active in between video games, TV time and outdoor play.  One easy way to do this while keeping our children excited is by pulling out the candy.  One of our favorite sweet treats that can be used with learning activities are M&M’s®.  These are a go to candy in the classroom when it comes to learning about probability and fractions but they can also be great for at home learning.  To get us started we created a few printables.  You can download these here:  M&M’s® Math at Home.

We found our M&M’s® Plain at our local Walmart Fresh Market and decided to add a bag of M&M’s® Peanut just for a little variety!  For the activities below we used the Plain variety butyou could use the Peanut variety, too!  Along with sharing our M&M’s® activities, we are also excited to share information on a daily chance to win a $100 Walmart gift card.

First, you will find a page that is designed to help students practice their data collecting skills.  Begin by having your children scoop a small handful of M&M’s® and place them in a bowl.  We then had our children create a concrete graph by placing the M&M’s® on the graph boxes.  (For those of you who aren’t teachers, a concrete graph is simply a graph that uses real items.)  Once they completed their graph, we had them count the total number and fill in the spaces at the bottom. 

Another activity we created are pattern cards. Our kids thought it was fun to use their M&M’s® to complete the patterns on each card.

The last set of cards are designed for kids learning to count.  You can use these in two different ways.  You can use the cards with the M&M’s® images and have your kids match them with the numbers.  Or, you can use the blank cards we included and give you children numbers.  They then have to place the correct number of M&M’s® on the card.

It’s true that our kids loved the M&M’s® activities but while we were at Walmart we also picked up some Life Savers® Hard Candy, Skittles®  and a box of M&M’s® Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches.  We have plans to create additional learning materials using the Life Savers® Hard Candy and Skittles®  – we are thinking more patterning work would be great for younger children!

The M&M’s® Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches were just for fun and made a great treat on a hot day!

We also like the idea of using Skittles®  for additional learning during the summer.  Younger kids can practice colors and sorting skills by dividing the candies in piles by colors.  Another idea is to have children count the number of each color and then practice adding multiple numbers by adding the five numbers. Again, these candies can also be used for creating simple patterns.  Older kids can be encouraged to find the percentage of each color in the bag.
