Christmas Tree Math

A Christmas activity that makes adding and subtracting fun! A free printable is provided for the trees as well as the math worksheet. For younger children just use the trees with numbers as a counting tool – punch holes to equal the number listed on the tree. This is also a perfect opportunity to practice fine motor skills as well with cutting and hole punching.  Give older children a challenge by seeing how many ways they can use the 12 trees to create the math formulas. Children will have fun with this Christmas Tree Math project!
MATERIALS:
  • Green printer paper for the tree template
  • White or other colors of printer paper for the math worksheet
  • Free printable Tree Template
  • Free printable Math Worksheet
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Print out the Tree Template on the green printer paper.
  • Print out the Math Worksheet on white or colored printer paper. I used red in this example.
  • Cut apart the 12 trees.
  • Punch out the number of holes that matches the number on the top of the tree.
  • Rearrange the trees on the worksheet to make math formulas.
