Candles on a Cake

ages 2-5


Playdough, birthday candles, plastic lids

Activity Detail

Who doesn't love a birthday cake? Use this fun idea to help your little ones work on addition and quantity. Begin by making a cake out of playdough. Put candles in the cake and count them. Then place the cake on a plastic lid and make another one. See how many cakes with different numbers of candles you can make. Which cake is the one for your child this year? Next year? For big brother's birthday? It's fun doing math with playdough cakes!
