It’s time for Halloween! We know math can be boring and pretty mundane, so we created this Halloween Candy Graphing activity pack to show you another way you can make learning fun!
This fun Halloween Candy Graphing activity is fang-tastic (I know, corny, right?) This fun activity is sure to make math extra fun (and exciting) because you get to use math as an excuse to pull out all the Halloween candy stash and maybe your children will let you eat some it after they finish graphing it.
Halloween Candy Graphing
I need to warn you right now though… once your children count and complete all the Halloween candy graphing activities, they will know exactly how much candy they have. You know what means? They now will know when candy goes missing! So you need to realize, if you are one of those moms who sneaks a few of your favorite pieces of candy out of the Halloween stash, you are seriously going to caught!
Speaking of favorites, I’ll admit, Snickers bars and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups are what goes missing around here. So the reality is, we are just going to have to buy us some of our favorite Halloween candy. The good news is, after Halloween, they will probably all be on sale, so it will be the time to stock up anyway!
One of the great things about this activity pack is that you can adapt it for children of a variety of ages. The Halloween Candy Graphing Pack includes practice for reading and using all different kinds of graphs and charts, such as:
- Table making
- Tally charts
- Circle graphs
- Bar graphs
How to Use:
This printable Halloween Candy Graphing pack is easy to use and adapt in a variety of ways! The most straightforward way to use this printable is to let your your child use their own Halloween goodies. Simply let them count and sort each type and mark it on the graphs.
Using This Pack with Younger Children:
Young children can still benefit from learning about charts and tables! For your younger kiddos, simply limit their pool of candy to 1-20 total pieces. Using the tally charts and bar graphs are probably the easiest for your littles.
Using This Pack with Older Children:
Older children can do the more challenging charts and have an unlimited candy selection. (Just watch how much candy seems to mysteriously disappear!)
The downloadable PDF for this packet also includes live internet links to fun and educational videos that can help your kids learn about or better understand the math concepts being used in these printables, so be sure to check those videos out before you hit “Print”!
