A Half Cup of Teddy

 For this little activity, I used my digital kitchen scale, a measuring cup and various things from around my kitchen. We weighed a half cup each of flour, sugar, chocolate chips, and red hots. I had the J-bird read me the numbers, and I wrote them down. After we'd weighed the first four things, he wanted to try some other items, so we weighed half a cup of crayons, and a little stuffed bear.

 Once we'd written everything down, he learned how to tell which was heaviest and which was lightest. Did you know that a half cup of sugar is heavier than a half cup of teddy bear? WELL NOW YOU KNOW.
