Today I wanted to share some of the free Christmas-themed addition and subtraction materials I’ve made for the kids over the years.
Here are some basic addition worksheets. These are for kids still working on their basic addition facts:
Last year, my kids were especially wild about Minecraft. ED asked for some Christmas Creeper practice pages… It seemed easy enough to make, so I made a set of practice pages for her!
If your kids enjoy Minecraft, you can download these by clicking on the link below:
One year I made some Pete the Cat themed addition worksheets. You’ll find those here: Christmas Addition Worksheets with Pete the Cat
You’ll also find some plain Pete the Cat Addition Worksheets here:
We also have a doubling game with Pete the Cat: (1+1, 2+2, 3+3, etc.)
We also have some Christmas math games I made for the kids last year. We used number cards to play various games… like Math War (Addition or Multiplication). You can also play “Make 10″ (where you put cards face down and take turns trying to pick up 2 cards that add up to 10). You’ll find lots more math game ideas and the various printables here:
We also played some other games last year — like the Quick Christmas Cross-Off. It’s great for kids who are learning to recognize double-digit numbers. Those printables are free here:
ED really liked the grid game last year:
For this game you need cards from 1-6 and two markers or crayons of different colors.
- The first player selects two cards. Create a grid with those numbers.
- For example, if a player gets a 2 and 6 she marks out a grid like the green example above.
