Breakfast Math: Counting with Waffles
Combine the most important meal of the day with some tactile math: create abacus waffles! Here's an activity to help your child boost her energy and her math skills. Use fresh berries to make patterns in the grooves of waffles, and give your child a nutritious way to get some "berry good" hands-on practice with patterning and counting.
What You Need:
- Assorted fresh berries such as blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, or strawberries
- Box of frozen waffles (allow 1 to 2 waffles per person)
- Blueberry or other flavored syrup (optional)
- Serving bowls
- Toaster plates
