Christmas Cookie Cutter Math is a hands-on estimating and counting activity. It makes a great center during the holiday season. Children love to use festive cookie cutters. Add some lima beans and you are all set! I like to spray paint the beans red and green to make it even more motivating and fun. They trace around the cookie cutters, estimate how many beans will fit inside their shape, fill in the shape with beans, and count the beans to check their prediction. They enjoy coloring and decorating the shape after they have finished counting and recording. Lots of holiday fun!
