Making Math Fun

Posted by: 

Growing up many kids have a good grade in math, but never really enjoy or feel confident in this subject. Some kids wonder why we need math at all. A large number of children find math down right scary!
Fortunately there are some really great ways to help your kids feel comfortable, confident and full of purpose.
At home one of our favorite things to do is cook together.  The kids will help measure, cut, stir and bake.
In figuring portion sizes and number of servings, I love doubling recipes or cutting them in half so they can work with multiplication and division. One of our favorite recipes to make together is Magic 6 Layer Bars.....YUMMO! 
Here is the recipe, have some fun with the kids and enjoy the treat. We'd love to hear some of the ways you incorporate activities that require math skills.
