We love math and mixing it with art for extra fun!

Gather your materials. You will need a large piece of brown paper, red, green and white paper as well. You will also need a marker, a circle paper punch , scissors and glue stick.

Start by cutting stems out of the white paper leaving enough to also punch out the dots. Write numbers on the stems with the marker. Glue to the brown paper.

Cut out mushroom tops from the red and green paper.Glue on.

Now comes the math ! You have to punch out the correct number of dots to correspond with the numbers on the stem and glue them on.
