Fun Math Skills Practice Activity with Finding Dory Goldfish® Crackers


Goldfish® Crackers are one of our favourite snacks for the boys. They are baked with real cheese, contain no artificial colours or flavours, have 0 trans fat and are low in saturated fat. They are super tasty as well and the boys love them. We usually pack some when we go on our family hikes as they are great snacks for on-the-go.

Recently we have been using objects to help him count and practice addition. This time we used the new limited edition Finding Dory Goldfish® Crackers and he had a ton of fun counting and eating crackers at the same time. After every answer he got to eat some crackers and he loved it.

All you need for this fun activity is a large piece of paper, a marker and a package of Goldfish® Crackers. Easy!

Our youngest one enjoys finding the blue crackers in the package and sorting them before eating them, we obviously call this game “finding Dory”. Great way to practice his colours and sorting skills as well.

  1. That sure looks like a fun way to do Math….i might eat most

  2. This is such a brilliant idea! What a fun (and yummy) way to learn Math

  3. We just stocked up on Goldfish crackers….they were on sale so we REALLY stocked up lol

  4. Learning is always easier when you’re having fun and if you get to eat Goldfish crackers at the same time it’s even more fun. This is a super idea 🙂

  5. Your site has wonderful ideas, great giveaways and shows the pride you have in your family. You manage to juggle several things at one time and do them well!

  6. Great idea, with a treat at the end… The boys attend museums, parks, nature schools, etc. throughout the summer (most of these learning experiences often have a physical activity or outdoors spin); on the weekends, we continue their comportment and ettique classes (4 hours where they learn the necessities from dance to how to “be” at a formal dinner); a couple times a week, we have a tutor that comes in that does maths and sciences with them (follows what their interests are). Mostly, we just indulge their own pursuits and interests in the summer time and I have found them to be very prepared for school again. When they were little, I would do much more basis (like you have mentioned above), but they’re older.

  7. Absolutely everything is more fun with Goldfish Crackers!!!!

  8. Im picking up some Goldfish Crackers and doing some Math with the preschooler on the weekend,sure to be fun

  20. This is a wonderful idea for helping children with math. The goldfish are solid objects that he can pick up and put down or count or eat. This is fun for young children.
