The tradition in our house is to put up our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving.
We string the lights and fill it with some of our favorite ornaments.
Since Nicholas is a little older this year, we decided to get him involved and let him help hang some of the ornaments on the tree.
As he hung them up, he started counting them and that gave me a little bit of an idea 🙂
Since the ornaments on our real Christmas tree won’t be moving for a while, we made ourselves some fun printable Christmas trees and added a little math element to them as well.
We focused on number 1-10 for this particular activity but there are a couple of blank Christmas trees included in the printable PDF version so that you can add whatever numbers you like.
If you’re practicing higher sets of numbers, you can easily laminate the trees and use a dry erase marker to change out the numbers on the trunks as you go 🙂
Now obviously, Nicholas can’t continue to count regular ornaments on these little trees, so we substituted with something that is just as colorful but a whole lot sweeter. M&Ms!
They wound up looking just like little ornaments and were a lot of fun to count!
So go ahead and grab the printable! They’re super easy to use! Just print, cut, count, and eat 🙂
