Enjoy Christmas Math This Festive Season

We have done a few Christmas math activities in the past, but I realized we certainly hadn’t done enough. There isn’t enough time in the day for all the amazing Christmas STEM Activities you could do!

Christmas-themed math is an awesome way to practice the same concept in different ways. I have found this method great for reinforcing what my son has already learned or still needs to practice math skills. This December, add fun printable Christmas math games and activities to the mix!

Just because it’s the holiday season doesn’t mean we can’t have fun with math skills inside and outside the classroom. You can print off these resources and have them available for early finishers or quiet time. There are Christmas math ideas you can use with kindergarten, and elementary students.

Christmas Math Worksheets

Below you’ll find a variety of math worksheets as instant downloads to keep your kiddos learning this holiday season.

Pre-k, Kindergarten,1st Grade, to 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and even 4th grade… add them to math centers or enjoy them at home. PLUS, this is a growing resource, so I will add more Christmas math ideas as they come along.

TIP: Some of these printables may be best laminated or out in protective sleeves to use over and over again!
