Cooking is a great and practical way to implement mathematical thinking. You can use a wide range of math skills: measuring, weighing, portioning, time observation and budgeting. Cooking not only helps you practice your math skills but can be super tasty too!

Check out these activities in the kitchen: 

Preschool level activity: Practice measuring skills with your little one while mixing up your own homemade ice cream. Bonus points for getting all the wiggles out.
