MATH: CHRISTMAS TREE PUNCH

Christmas math activities

Cut out multiple green triangle trees and write a number on the bottom of each. Set the trees out with a hold punch. Have your child pick a tree, identify the number, then count and punch to show how many. This activity is great for both one-to-one counting practice and FINE MOTOR practice! Yay!
