The Christmas tree is up, the smell of hot chocolate fills the air and you’re expecting family visits soon so the kids are excited and jumping off of the walls. Do you really want to sit down with your math textbook to teach the kids? Nope, we spend our December doing fun Christmas learning activities, so they’re still learning but it looks a lot different than the other months of the year. Find all our free Christmas worksheets here.
If your child is learning to add up to 10, these Christmas addition puzzles are a perfect way to keep them learning and still maintain the fun. No writing needed but they need to match up the correct answers.
There are two puzzles for each number because I wanted to teach my daughter that there are numerous ways to add up to the same number.
Christmas Addition Puzzles Supplies
- Printer (I have this one)
- Paper or cardstock
- Laminator (optional)
Print out the puzzles onto paper or cardstock, I use my trusty laminator to laminate them so we can use them again.
