Macy’s Dinner in Space

your dinner in space

You’re super excited for dinner tonight: Popcorn is on the menu! But oh no: Popcorn comes topped with Tomatoes. You don’t want to hurt the chef’s feelings, so you sneak every bit of Tomatoes off the plate and launch it into the sky on a Blue hot air balloon. But Tomatoes doesn’t fly far before a hungry seagull gobbles it up. Problem solved, dinner served!

Wee Ones:

Can you find 3 Blue objects near you? Which item is largest?

Little Kids:

If you’re at a restaurant sharing 10 plates of Tomatoes with a seagull,, how many different ways could you and the seagull share those plates?

Bonus:

If there are twice as many Tomatoes-topped cupcakes as Popcorn-topped ones, and there are 7 Popcorn-topped ones, how many Tomatoes-topped cupcakes are there?

Big Kids:

You’re opening your own restaurant and order a big box of 72 onions! But 1/2 of the onions are Blue – that can’t be good. How many onions do you need to toss in the compost?

Bonus:

Oh no! The onion people also keep delivering 4 1/2 pound boxes of Tomatoes every Wednesday this May. How many pounds does that add up to for the month?

 

Answers:
Wee Ones:

Different for everyone!

Little Kids:

There are 5 ways that you and the birds could split 10 plates: 1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, 5+5.

Bonus:

14 Tomatoes-topped cupcakes.

Big Kids:

36 onions. 

Bonus:

22 1/2 pounds, because there are 5 Wednesdays in May this year.
