Christmas Counting

aterials Needed:

Paper or foam/felt Christmas tree cut outs


Mini erasers or other ornament shapes


This is a great winter activity to practice fine motor as well as number and letter recognition. Each student will get their own tree. I love using mini erasers from the Target dollar spot, but you can use beads or buttons or anything for ornaments. Have your student roll a dice. Then they can use jumbo tweezers or their hands to add that many ornaments to their tree. Have them see if they can decorate their whole tree! You could also write numbers or letters on the tree and do a roll and cover method. When they roll a number 6, they cover the number 6. If they choose a letter H, they cover the letter H. Perhaps you'd like to challenge them to build a pattern with their ornaments. Maybe you want to focus on fine motor and have them cut out and glue ornaments on their tree for a take home craft. The options are quite limitless! I always find my foam christmas trees for a good price from Michaels and reuse them. But paper works just as nice. Have fun!
