Are you ready for some fun seasonal hands-on math? Today I am sharing several Christmas ideas for kids age 4+.

Christmas Hands-on Math Ideas for Kids Age 5+ Christmas Math on Planet Smarty Pants

We’ve been slacking with math at home lately for two reasons. One is because daughter is so far ahead already, and two is because we are so busy with her other activities. But this weekend I am going to pull out our Pentomino Christmas math activity and challenge her again to figure out the solution to Pentomino Christmas puzzles.
