Santa Math Mat
I made a santa math mat which is great for number recognition and review as well as fine motor development. I printed all the patterns on cardstock paper and cut them out.
I cut most of the blank cardstock paper off of the santa printout and glued the santa on to a green sheet of cardstock paper and laminated the mat. I also laminated the number circles and attached self-adhesive magnets to the back of them.
In this activity children put a number circle on the blank circle on the santa mat. They then put the same number of counters on the mat. We used unifix cubes for our counters but you can use cotton balls ... pom poms ... buttons or anything you have on hand. As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is where the santa color match is also located.

I'm so glad I stumbled upon your website. I love your ideas, and your videos make it really easy to implement into my curriculum. Your printables make it very easy for differentiation in the classroom too. (FYI...Home Depot sells brand new paint sticks in bundles of 10 for 99 cents. It makes it easier than coming up with paint sticks.) I have also found it easy to put many of your printables on to paint sticks. My students really like using them at them at the front of the class.
