Goody goody gumdrops! Fun With Gumdrops! is the first post in our Fun With Food! series.
I used to love the sugary, spicy taste of these yummy gummy confections. My mother always broke them out at Christmastime for our gingerbread houses and just the scent of these candies makes me nostalgic for my childhood.
Somehow I hadn’t seen them for years, so when I passed a bag of gumdrops in the grocery aisle the other day, I had to pick them up. Turns out they are perfect for learning colors, counting, geometrical shapes and hours of fun. All you need are toothpicks and you’re ready to go!
- other shapes (squares, hexagons, octagons, you name it)
- 3-D shapes (like a house or box) or
- atoms and chemical structures.
LEARN! Colors, counting, shapes/geometry, fine motor skills
