Do your kids love Easter egg hunts? Or just finding things?

Well, mine love it. As soon as they had a valid excuse they got out the “Jesus Eggs” (also known as Resurrection Eggs, if you’re not in my family).

So, our math on Friday was to find the eggs and then solve the two different types of math problems:

1. Putting the number in it’s place and gluing it down, which Superman is doing there.

and

2. Creating a math problem from the jelly beans in the egg.

Not too surprisingly the second one was wildly popular, but the first one was too. So, now I need to remember to do the silly easy things more often, because it’s a great confidence booster for the boys and review of an easy skill, and good practice for the girl.

Math printable was found here. She’s got great units for almost every holiday.

Sounds like fun!

We do jellybean math this time of year, too.

So does Jelly bean math mostly consist of subtraction?

Jeff is funny! 🙂

I love Jeff's comment! That is what it would be here.

Well, yes it did eventually.

Great ideas!

My family used to guess how many jelly beans in a jar every year.

It sounds like another step in playful learning. I want to try problem making one day soon.

How fun! My boys would love this. Thanks for posting at Math Monday!

You can't go wrong with maths problems and food!
