Have you mixed in any math lately?

Try coming in to the library to see the fun activities we have for thinking about numbers and math skills!

  • All month long we have a measuring game called "Can You Measure Up?" We provide the ruler, the game sheet, and the prize from our treasure chest for diligent measurers!
  • All month long we have our guessing jar with pom poms to practice your estimating skills! At the end of the month, the closest guess will win a prize!
  • If you want to mix in a little math at home, try mixing up this trail mix recipe:

1 c. cereal + 1/2 c. raisins + 1/4 c. mini-marshmallows

And if you REALLY want to test your math skills, try TRIPLING the quantities! Not only will it be great practice, but you end up with more to eat! Woo-hoo!
