If you don’t school year round then summer time, down time can sometimes cause a serious case of brain loss. You know, the time when your children forget the entire last year of learning and you have to start all over again! Well, today I am sharing a fun way to keep math in the for front of their minds and also show them why we need it in the first place.
We are doing some fun restaurant pretend play with a hidden agenda.
First, you will need some menus. I asked several of our favorite restaurants for to-go menus or printed some of the internet to use. The important part is that they have prices listed.
Second, you will need this Receipt Printable.
It is also nice to have play (or real) money so they can practice counting out change. I found some at our local Dollar Store.
Then let your kids play restaurant and practice filling out the order tickets. Then adding up the totals and counting back change!
