Holiday Themed Math Activities

Thanks to Adventures in Mommydom for sharing this easy, yet entertaining math game with us.

Kids will learn about numbers and culture with this simple Hanukkah felt set that costs less than $1 to make.

Tired, Need Sleep has put together some Christmas themed patterning and counting opportunities we think you might enjoy trying too.

The Activity Mom sent us the link to this fun Santa Dice Game. Looks like a fun way practice counting and getting into the holiday spirit.

While it's not specifically a math activity, we loved My Bilingual Boys', Christmas sensory tub and surely you can come up with a graphing, estimating, or counting activity that would tie in!

My Bilingual Boys also put together a neat box game for number recognition, addition practice, and more than/less than instruction.

Make a felt tree while learning the important concepts of ordering and sorting by size, thanks to this submission from The Adventures of Bear.

They also put together a construction paper tree to practice ordering by size.

My Bilingual Boys shared a fun activity for I Spy Counting Tree using ornament stickers on construction paper.  To make this activity work for older students, List Maker Katie used to use the same idea in her second grade class and have the students graph how many ornaments of each kind they counted.

  1. The link to the sensory box isn't right! It leads to the Santa dice game instead.
