Math Apples

My daughter just started Kindergarten and is OBSESSED with school. It's a good thing, right? I've been looking for more {fun} ways that I can emphasize what she's learning at school, at home.
 We call these "Math Apples". I slice up an apple, and coat half of each slice in a generous amount of peanut butter. Then I put random amounts of chocolate chips on each slice.
 I shape them in a flower because my daughter thinks it's pretty cool. Then she has to count how many apples are on each slice before she eats them. Sometimes I'll put a few slices together and she has to "add" all the chocolate chips together from the two slices before she can eat those.  My daughter thinks this is the greatest game ever.
