Edible Christmas Trees

Today we made edible Christmas trees with out kindergarten reading buddies.  I have done this project multiple times and the kids always seem to love it:)  The photo of mine is not perfect, but you get the idea.  We used sugar cones, and then the kids spread vanilla frosting on them.  Most years we dye it green, but this year we said that it was snow on the tree.  I also learned this year that having the plates pre-sprinkled (the kids were at specials), makes life much easier.  Some of them used their hands, while others just rolled the cone and frosting around in the sprinkles.

Christmas Math ActivitiesI

I created a few Christmas activities for students to practice math.  They are both available in my TPT store for FREE.  You can view the "Santa Bump Game" here .   The "Santa Number Activity Packet" contains a variety of activities ranging in grades K-2.  You can view that here.  Please leave a comment here so I have an idea as to how many people are using them...just curious:)
