About a year ago I came across the idea of “math munchers” on Maisy Flops and Dollipops, I knew at the time we’d eventually get around to making a set of our own. Eventually came last week.
Its a simple project requiring only popsicle sticks, paint, glue, and googly eyes. (Masking tape and clear packaging tape optional for making teeth.)
LittleMan painted the popsicle sticks by himself. Once they were dry, together we glued one set into an angle and added googly eyes to both sets.
I added teeth for the greater than/less than sign by putting a piece of clear packaging tape and a piece of masking tape sticky sides together then cutting zig zag and gluing onto the popsicle sticks. I added teeth for the equal to sign by putting two pieces of clear packaging tape together then gluing it to the popsicle sticks.
Once dry LittleMan used these along with a pack of playing cards to practice some basic math skills.by
