Has your child ever asked you, "WHYYYY do I have to learn math??"
Get your creative kid excited about math by designing and selling (imaginary) chocolates!
Your child will experience firsthand the importance of math as they add the costs to make chocolates, tally up their boxes, figure out profit and shipping, and "sell" to family and friends.
Most of the math skills in this project are based on money decimals, but your child will also get real-world practice with bar models, fractions, and percents.
Creative kids will show off their imagination and link their skills to math--and maybe even plant the seeds to become a young entrepreneur!
Your child will:
- graph results of interviews
- design chocolates
- add the cost of ingredients
- price boxes based on profit margin
- calculate shipping fees
- "sell" to friends, family, and (pretend) online orders
- double and halve a recipe
- practice math skills in the context of chocolates
There are 40 pages, and the complete project should take approximately 5-6 hours to complete.

FAQ: Will my child make and sell actual chocolates?
To be clear, this is an imaginary adventure, and the chocolate design and "selling" all happens on paper.
However, because no chocolate project would feel complete without actual chocolates, there are recipes at the end for actual homemade truffles and Reese's bars that your child can make at home. 🍫💝
