Candy Math

by | Nov 3, 2009 | All Saints Day, Math | 8 comments

Even though we attend a party on All Hallows’ Eve, our children save their candy till after Mass on the actual feast of All Saints.

This year I decided to have the boys graph their candy, and they loved the idea!

Apparently my boys really like caramels… Sure wish it was Almond Joys or Snickers… Snuggles was the only one that came home with some of those since I helped him choose some of his candy during the party games! 😉

    What a great idea to graph the candy! And I love how you saved the candy for the actual feast of All Saints. Thanks for sharing.

    God bless!

    Thanks Kelly! I saw the idea on another website, when we were looking for pumpkin carving ideas, and thought it would be a fun.

    Okay, so are those religious lollipops I see????

    They ARE!! Aren't they great! I am not sure which mom brought them to the party though, or where they were purchased, but Twinkle Toes LOVED them!

    What a great idea for graphing!! Might have to buy a big bag of mixed candy just for this purpose!! 🙂

    Beautiful pumpkins, You guys are great at carving!!

    That All Souls Mass at the cemetary is so beautiful.

    Mom who brought the lollipops – are you out there????

    I asked another mom who was there, and although she wasn't the one that brought them to the party, she also recently purchased some from the Dollar Store. She said they came in a 3 pack. I hope that helps!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
