This edible monster maths game is a great way of encouraging children to count and recognise numbers. We had lots of fun choosing numbers, icing biscuits and counting eyes. Our monster biscuits were yummy and they made a great gift for daddy from his little monsters. This fun maths activity is part of the 'Cool maths for cool kids' series hosted by 'Peakle Pie.
- biscuits (we used this recipe)
- coloured icing
- eyes (we made ours from fondant icing but smarties or sweets would make good alternatives)
- numbers 1-10 written on paper and folded in half.
Monster Biscuits Maths Game
Reveal and read a number.
Ice a biscuit and count on a matching number of eyes to create your monster.
Repeat for all numbers. We added a few icing mouths to our monsters.
When we had completed our game we gave our biscuits to daddy as a little gift for fathers day, (but we helped him eat them!)
