I created this math activity using Goldfish® Princess crackers as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #GoldfishTales
One of our go to snacks for many years has been Goldfish® crackers. They are the perfect snack size for kids. Plus they make snacking on the go so easy for kids and parents alike.
One thing we’ve noticed recently is the amount of options Goldfish has available to choose from at the store. The flavor choices are half the fun when deciding with my girls which one we want to get. Cheddar, Sour Cream and Onion, Pretzel, Rainbow and now Princess are the ones that seem to be first choice at our house.
The flavor option we’ve selected to share about with you is the NEW Princess Goldfish crackers. While looking at the ingredient I noticed that Goldfish uses beet juice to color them a magical light purple color, a big hit in a house with two little girls.

We added grapes to our snack time to add some fresh fruit. With two options we were also able to count those out and also explore patterning a bit too.
