So Thanksgiving is officially over! Our tree is up, and we are ready to put away our turkeys and trade them in for some Christmas activities.
With all the fun festivals going on, I want to say thank you to each one of you. And to do that I created Seven Days of Free Christmas Math Printables.
If you have been at You’ve Got This Math before, you know my passion is hands-on math.
I love finding ways that children can play with math, and visual show their work. I also love providing teachers and parents resources that they can easily use to build their math sense in their kiddos.
And since I have readers from kindergarten to 5th grade, I wanted to include them all in this special Days of Christmas. But since there are more than 5 grades in elementary school, my Five Days of Christmas turned into Seven Days of Christmas.

For the next seven days, I will post fun hands-on math ideas you can use in your classroom or at home. There is one for each grade level, but I also tried to choose activities that numerous grade levels could use.
I can’t wait to share them with you!!!
My boys and I love STEM activities. I love watching them struggle a little, revamp, and replan until they accomplish the challenge. STEM challenges help children build math, science, and engineering skills and develop higher level thinking skills too. And these fun challenges will help you accomplish all of this….with a Christmas theme.
This activity uses Gum Drops and ten frames to help children visualize what each number represents and then be able to compare them.
Thirdly, on day 3 there is a fun Christmas Telling Time Game
Of course, we love games and this one work on telling time. There is an option for telling time to the hour, to 15-minute increments, and finishes with 5-minute increments.
Next, we have Day 4 and a fun Measuring with Gum Drops
Measuring and graphing are important aspects of any geometry unit. This fun activity has children measuring Christmas objects with Gum Drops and then creating a line graph.
Moving on to Day 5 we get an Area and Perimeter Activity
Once again, using Gum Drops children measure shapes to figure out area and perimeter.
Day 6 focuses on Improper and Proper Fractions
Use pies and this cut and paste activity to help children visualize improper and proper fractions.
Finally, on Day 7 we will tackle Multiplying a Fraction by a Fraction
Use Gum Drops and area models to visualize what happens when you multiply a fraction by a fraction.
I hope you enjoy all these resources and find a way to use them during this fun, and busy season. So pin or bookmark this page and visit often, as new links will be added each day!
You may also want to grab you a bag of Gum Drops, as many of these activities use them.
