Use this printable graph and a handful of tasty treats to teach your kiddo beginning graphing skills today! Whether it’s on Valentine’s Day, Halloween, or any other day of the year, learning beginning math skills is especially fun when there is candy involved.
How To Use This Candy Graphing Printable Graph
This printable graph is a tasty, fun math activity for kids!
It is specifically designed to be used with M&M’s so if you’re doing this activity around any particular holiday, be sure to check which colors are included. As long as you have at least 3 of the colors listed on the graph, you’ll have enough engagement that your child will begin to grasp the concept of graphing — talk with your child about what zero means (nothing or none) for the columns that don’t have any candies!
Grab some candy and let’s get started!
- Begin by printing out the Candy Graphing printable graph.
- Using a fun size M&M’s candy pack (or a handful from a big bag!), have your child take one candy out at a time and place it on the graph for the color candy they grabbed.
- Once all the candy is graphed, have them count the candies in each column and say the number. Point out the number on the left side as well once they say the final count.
Bam — your child just made and read a graph! Hooray!
