Goldfish Snack Math Sheets



All moms seek moments to connect with their kids. Sometimes it feels like there isn't enough time in the day between all the to-dos and the must-get-dones. Over the years I have learned that moments to connect with my kids do not have to be over planned or extravagant.

Moments to connect can be found in to-dos and the must-get-dones.

I found learning time can be a fun opportunity to connect with my boys. Sometimes homework and learning time is no fun because it can cause stress, boredom, and frustration. I decided why not fix that and make it a fun moment to connect.

I made these Snack Math Sheets. Then I gathered a few of the kids favorite flavors of one of their favorite snacks: Goldfish® crackers.


We used the Cheddar whole grain Goldfish crackers to do some Snackity Snack Snack Addition.

The color Goldfish crackers were perfect for working on classification and sorting.

This little man had so much fun making up his own addition problems, solving them, and of course eating a few.

For my slightly older boys I made up a number bingo sheet. I busted out the Goldfish grahams.

Nothing is more fun than getting a bingo. Well except eating the bingo.

Right now there is a Goldfish Tales campaign going on where you can share your favorite Goldfish cracker moment. You just need to go and visit GoldfishSmiles.com to find out more about their latest tale, details regarding the promotion, submissions, and a behind-the-scenes video of the making of their tale. To enter the Goldfish Tales entrants are asked to share a photo and story for a chance to win a case of product each month and an awesome trip to the U.S. location of the winner's choice, so that you can create more Goldfish Tales and of course more memories for your family.

In case you want to use a learning moment for your Goldfish Tale, I am providing these Snack Math Sheets for you to use with your own kiddos.

We had so much fun with this learning activity. It was fun to take a must-do and turn it into a moment to connect with my kids. I loved it because they were learning and having fun. They loved it because they were learning (even though they may not admit to it) and eating Goldfish crackers, one of their favorite snacks.

How do you like to connect with your kids? Little moments seem to be great times to connect. Tell me in a comment how you connect with your kids and you will be entered for a chance to win a $100 VISA Gift Card!

Well, my kid is older now so I connect with her on facebook and iPhone, but when she was little I had a plexiglass fish hook box with a bunch of sections in it and a bunch of letters cut out of magazines. We would make messages called "ransom notes" (though she fortunately had no idea what that was) and present them to her dad.

I connect with my kids by listening. I try to be there and listen when others won't. I try to listen to the tedious stories and the droning questions that tend to drive most adults crazy and granted, my eyes do glaze over sometimes, I'll admit. But when my kids look back at me, I want them to always remember our talks and the fact that I was always there, listening.

These are such fun ideas! :) One of my favorite ways to connect with the kids is just by doing mundane things together :) Cooking dinner, household chores and other stuff that is usually "boring". By making them fun with the kids, we'll have time together and lots of great memories. Plus, the chores will be more fun too! :)
