# Arilynn’s Dinner in Space

You’re super excited for dinner tonight: Salt and vinegar chips is on the menu! But oh no: Salt and vinegar chips comes topped with Mushrooms. You don’t want to hurt the chef’s feelings, so you sneak every bit of Mushrooms off the plate and launch it into the sky on a Blue hot air balloon. But Mushrooms 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 Mushrooms with a seagull, how many different ways could you and the seagull sort those plates into 2 piles?

Bonus:

If there are twice as many Mushrooms-topped cupcakes as Salt and vinegar chips-topped ones, and there are 7 Salt and vinegar chips-topped ones, how many Mushrooms-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 Mushrooms every Wednesday this May. How many pounds does that add up to for the month?

Wee Ones:

Different for everyone!

Little Kids:

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

Bonus:

14 Mushrooms-topped cupcakes.

Big Kids:

36 onions.

Bonus:

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