Fun and Easy Halloween Snack with a Little Hidden Math!

If you don’t have time to be creative, but you want to serve a fun and festive snack to your little ones, here’s an idea….

Buy festive icecube trays from your local Dollar Store or this year, I’ve seen them at the Canadian Superstore (Loblaws).

Young children just LOVE to get their snack tray filled up with fun little food bits and they feel like a big kid when they carry it by themselves to the table. The trays are so much fun to fill and they portion out the smallest snacks so their tummies don’t get too full.

You can also bring in a small fun math lesson while working on 1:1 counting skills without them even knowing they’re doing it!



oops, my daughter might have gotten into her snack before I had a chance to snap the photo 😉

Such a simple thing makes snack time so special and so much fun!

You may even find that your children are willing to try something “new” for snack in these lovely, little trays. Perhaps you could build it into Eating a Rainbow?! If you click on that post, you will even find a giveaway that is open until November 10th!

    What a cute idea. I am always looking for new snack ideas. I also have a 4 year old that is obsessed with learning math.

    What a great idea! My 4 year old is obsessed with making patterns and we could easily leave the last one blank for him to finish. Love it!!! I might throw that spin on the ice cube tray idea and write it up. You are so inspirational! Thanks for stopping by Mental Chew!

    October 31-What a lovely idea. This would really be good for children who are ‘picky’ eaters. One could set saucers of items on one table and the child could take one of these pretty ‘trays’ and pick up what they wanted to eat. No nagging! Thank you. Elva Roberts
