Bring in a jar and put an even number of candy in it. Ask the child to pick out two candy from the jar each time and count the total candy they have. After the child has picked out all the candy from the jar, show that are none left!

Next, ask the child to divide the total number of candy by 2 to check if there is a remainder.

Repeat the activity with an odd number of candy to demonstrate the difference.
