Need a quick idea to keep your kids entertained AND learning? I created some free printable activity worksheets that allow your kids to PLAY with their food and LEARN at the same time. It’s a win-win! All you need are a handful of colorful goldfish – a mom’s purse staple – and a few crayons and let your kids do the rest. These free printable worksheets include several math concepts as well as coloring and sorting – perfect for young elementary learners. How much does your family love Goldfish® crackers? They have been a staple in my house from the time my kids were old enough to eat finger foods! While other snacks come and go, these cheery, wholesome crackers seem to stand the test of time. I am super excited today to share some awesome printable worksheets that you and your kiddos can use while snacking on your own stash of Goldfish crackers!
I created a good variety of worksheets here that will be perfect for a spread of ages. All of my girls had so much fun with these, from my 5-year-old up to my 9-year-old. Some of the concepts kids can work on include: sorting by color, quantity comparison, more/less/same, addition and subtraction with manipulatives, imaginative drawing, and completing a maze. My organization-loving self was quite pleased to see these cute pyramids that were created with the more/less scale activity. Everyone was excited about the variety sheet. Wouldn’t this be so great to have in your purse with that baggie of Goldfish crackers when you’re on the go? Kids getting restless in the doctor’s office or waiting for their food at a restaurant? Bam! They’ll love creating their own stories with this one. Sorting by color is a great task for little ones and the colored Goldfish crackers are fun to sort while eating. This is a good on-the-go activity sheet, too, especially for those kids who aren’t ready for drawing and coloring. As a parent, I always like to see what my girls draw in a free space like this thought bubble. There are both addition and subtraction activity sheets. These would be really handy to laminate and use with a dry-erase marker. Using manipulatives can be so helpful for kids as they begin learning math concepts. These printable sheets are a great way to sneak in some brainwork with snack time! Do you think your kids would love these activities, also? I hope so – I had a really good time creating them.
