Marshmallow Peeps Math Craft

The class made a Marshmallow Peeps craft to help them learn to count by 5’s.  Each student made a basket of 5 peeps.  We lined them up on the board and were able to count to 100 by 5’s!


First the students cout out 5 pastel peeps.

They added three brown dots for the details of the eyes and nose.

The baskets were difficult to cut, so I had our 5th grade reading buddies help us cut the basket and glue the peeps in!

Each student wrote “5” on their basket to show that there are 5 peeps inside.  I put them all up on the white board and wrote under the baskets how many peeps total we had.  I left these up for two days so we could keep revisiting them.  This would be great for a spring bulletin board too!
