Monster Biscuits Maths Game

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.


Monster Biscuit Maths Counting Game


You will need:

  • 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.
