With our printable Christmas math worksheets writing numbers is fun for kids.
These 12 Days Worksheets can be assigned one day at a time through the season or you can bind them as a Christmas counting and coloring book.
I have seen kids who cut out the pictures when they were done with the worksheets to make other Christmas projects like cards for Mom and Dad.
It's super fun if you also teach the words to the song. The main words to the song are below the worksheets. These are darling pictures for the Christmas season.
For accuracy's sake the real Twelve Days are after Christmas starting on December 26 and ending on January 6. The season before Christmas is when we are "waiting" for Jesus to come, otherwise known as the four weeks of Advent.
If you use an Advent calendar before Christmas, you can use these Math worksheets after Christmas to count the days till the Magi arrive in Bethlehem.
This is a fun song to sing during the twelve days between Christmas and Epiphany. December 26 is the Feast of St. Stephen, the first martyr and the Epiphany is January 6th.

Oh, the kids love to line up to sing this song and show their own Christmas Math worksheets!
If you have twelve children, it's perfect for each child to have his assigned number to show his worksheet at the right phrase in the song. Each child can show for one stanza.
If you have fewer than twelve, have a table or put the papers on the floor so the children can cycle back to do a second showing. Usually, it's best to give the lead to your handiest child.
If you have more than twelve students, group them in teams for each of the Twelve Days of Christmas, two or three children per "day". Have fun with it!
