My kindergartener had so much fun with our roll and color fall leaves and our roll and color turkey feather sets that it just made sense to go ahead and make a Christmas version too. I think we’ll be making quite a few of these sets in the future. Kids love them, and they are an engaging, hands-on way to practice early math skills. In this free printable Christmas tree number matching activity kids get the chance to practice number recognition as they color in their own Christmas trees.
Uses for Roll and Color Math Games
At home you can set this activity up as quiet work during rest time, a choice option on a home preschool learning tray, or a guided activity to do together as you discuss shapes.
In the classroom, this printable is great for math centers, a follow-up activity after a guided lesson on shapes, or a free choice math option.

You can modify the activity in a variety of ways to meet your needs:
- Instead of coloring with crayons, place the page in a sheet protector and let kids color with dry erase markers so they can play over and over again.
- If you’re little one doesn’t enjoy coloring, use small manipulatives like mini pom poms or these adorable Christmas light buttons to cover the feather sections.
- Practice collaborative work by letting kids play in pairs.
