With a "free" week, I knew it was the perfect time to try Our Homeschool Fun's "Muffin Tin Trail Mix Game". I put 6 different items for DIY trail mix in each cup and had the kids roll two dice. One die was for which compartment to choose from and the other die determined how many pieces they could take. This week also brings a new muffin tin to our kitchen! Hooray for thrift stores and finding this little heart-shaped beauty for $1.99!! It's actually a butter mold made by the heart healthy butter alternative "Promise". I used a dry erase marker to label each tin with a number (Learning while you eat is fun!).
The kids absolutely LOVED this! It was a huge hit! After several turns with two dice, we went down to just one and they could choose whatever they wanted to put into the bag-the die determined the quantity. Many, many thanks to Susana over at Our Homeschool Fun for this terrific idea and for allowing me to post about it!
