Looking for a Christmas counting activity for kids? Try this simple Christmas math tray!

Around here, there are a few things my kids enjoy.

One of those things is math. Lots and lots of math.

Then there's clothespins. Even when my youngest K was a toddler, he loved playing with clothespins.

So if you combine the two, you end up with a guaranteed hit at my house!

This Christmas counting math activity tray is a cute way to work on fine motor skills and math skills. It would also make an adorable busy bag idea to take with you on the go.

Christmas Counting Math Tray: What You'll Need

Here's what you'll need for this Christmas fine motor math tray:

Label the 10 clothespins with the numbers 1-10 using the permanent marker.

Add dot stickers to the foam Christmas trees, starting with one sticker on one tree, then two on another, then three on another, etc. Or if you would prefer, then you can draw dots on the Christmas trees using a permanent marker. I wanted to reuse these tree shapes for other projects so I opted for something more temporary.
