We all know that kids in the kitchen have ample opportunity to work on their math skills. Recently Kiddo put his geometry and measuring skills to the test when we made some sausage and potato pockets.
First, he measuring to see how many more inches we need to roll the dough in order to make 12 inch squares:
Then he needed to measure 6 inches to divide the dough into 4 equal squares:
Now for the geometry!! Folding opposite corners of squares produces triangles:
Magic! (And also a great practical life skill...)

Yummy magic! I agree - you can learn so much about math in the kitchen.
I love this idea! So many possibilities.
