These print-and-go printables are perfect for busy preschool moms and teachers like you.

Color Matching

Print and laminate these holiday-themed activity pages and provide your child with a handful of pom poms. Have them match the pom poms to the correct color on the challenge mat.

I find it easiest to work from top to bottom so that the kids don’t bump the pom poms with their hands as they work.


After your child has covered the entire image, have them count each set of colored pom poms. This is a great way to help them practice counting from 1-30.

Number Formation

Once they’ve counted each pm pom of one color, have them write that number on the line.

If necessary, provide your child with a number line so they can see how to form each number. Or, draw the number lightly with a pencil and have your child trace over it.


Fill your book basket with a great collection of patriotic picture books. Most of these books can be found at your local library or used bookstore.
