Looking for a Christmas math activity for toddlers, preschoolers, or kindergarten kids? Try this simple Christmas graphing with gift bows.

The other morning while I was wrapping presents, I decided to put together this simple Christmas graphing math activity for kids as a way to keep K busy. He loves to help pick out ribbons and bows for the presents so I thought this activity would entertain him while I wrapped the presents in wrapping paper.

Christmas Graphing: What You'll Need for this Math Activity

The inspiration for this Christmas math activity was this candy graphing activity from Busy Toddler. Here's what you'll need:

 Using the tape, I made columns for each color of gift bow on the floor. I had exactly the right amount of tape too! As I was putting the last piece of tape down, I hit the end of the roll! Talk about meant to be!

Five year old K quickly got to work sorting the gift bows by color into the columns.

When he was done sorting, I started asking him specific questions about the graph, such as:

  • How many red bows are there?
  • How many green ones?
  • Which color has the most bows?
  • Which has the least?
  • What color has more: white or gold?
Then he would count the bows before answering.

Some of the questions he knew the answer just by taking a quick glance at his graph. Regardless, he loved this simple math activity and had a lot of fun with it!
