You can use the colored versions of these fun, holiday games to differentiate your math centers or create activities for early finishers.  The black and white, reproducible versions can be used for morning work or homework.

Your students can play these 3 Christmas Tree Roll & Cover Games by themselves or with a partner.  To play with a partner, have each player use a different colored marker or crayon.  When the entire board is colored or covered, the person who colored or covered the most ornaments on the Christmas tree wins the game.

    These are adorable. Thank you! Practicing sums can be a struggle with my homeschooled second-grader, but he loves holiday-themed games.

    Thank you
    These are fantastic!
    I will be using the add the dice one with my students, as I am in Australia and it is the end of the school year.

    Is there any chance you could do an adding numbers one with numbers to 20? So students can play with dice up to 9 or 10?

    Thanks again.
