A personal favorite of mine are the number puzzles

I use them for a math center, but also allow my kiddos to choose one and make their own.  Kiddos can practice sequencing numbers from 1-10, or counting backwards from 10 to 1, plus skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s, or 10s.

I'm the gingerbread man." measurement activities are especially fun too. 

My Y5s really enjoy scampering around the room finding "stuff" to measure with their 3 sizes of gingerbread cookies.

The featured FREEBIE for today is a super-fun wreath craftivity, perfect for the last week of school.

"I made this pretty wreath for you. I made it by mixing yellow and blue.
Yellow + Blue as you have seen, makes a lovely Christmas green.
The red berries, I’ll give you a hint, are made from someone’s fingerprint.
This wreath is a circle it has no end. It’s like my love, that I now send."

Yes, you can simplify things, and just have your kiddos use green paint, but I assure you, their squeals of delight, as 2 different colors blend together to make a new color, is priceless,  and well worth the mess.  It's almost magical. 

gingerbread crafts, gingerbread games, gingerbread centers, gingerbread activities, Christmas centers, skip counting activities, counting backwards, Christmas games, Christmas mathWell that's it for today.  Yesterday was "Christmas cookie-baking day" with 2 of my grandchildren, so today is "clean up the mess" day. 

I think we made more messes and memories than we did cookies, but the giggles, kisses and love were just as sweet. Wishing you a stress-free week, as you wind down to a much-deserved break.
