Turning our Halloween candy into a reading, writing and math lesson!

With all of the Halloween candy at our house the boys have been in candy heaven! I am not big on giving them candy that often, if they are to get a treat I'm more likely to give them cake or something of that nature. JJ must asked me for a piece of candy or wanted to look at his candy a million times this week, I decided to turn the candy examining into a chance to practice reading, writing and math. I had him sort the candy by type each in their own pile, write down the name of the candy, count how many were in each pile, and write down the number next to the name. He had a blast with this "lesson" and did it for 45 minutes! He had no idea he was learning while he basked in the glory of his Halloween loot ;)
