I love kid activities that I can set up in a breeze and don’t really have to think about. This Printable Winter Theme Math Activity definitely fits the bill. To use the activity, just cut out the numbers, counters and signs. Then, your children can use the materials to create and solve their own math problems.
If your child is younger, you may have to create the problems for them. If you are creating the problems, your child will still be placing the counters and selecting the correct answer.
The activity includes signs for both addition and subtraction and the numbers 0-10. It also comes with 2 types of counters, penguins and snowmen. There are 10 of each kind. The penguins should be used to represent 1 number in the equation and the snowmen should be used to represent the other number (before the equal sign). This will help your kids to visualize that they are adding or subtracting 2 different numbers. The possibilities are endless with this simple and enchanting winter math activity. I hope you enjoy it!
