This Christmas Tree Hole Punching Count is a simple to prep activity, using minimal materials and effort! Christmas Tree Hole Punching Count allows toddlers and preschoolers to count, recognize numbers, their order and to visually see their quantity. It’s also super fun, because of course you’re using a hole puncher!
A simple activity like this encourages a child to learn while having fun at the same time. In the end, that’s how kids learn best! Try this activity this Christmas (or winter!) and have fun learning together!

- Cut out elongated triangles out of the green cardstock, these will be your trees. They don’t have to be big, smaller trees are easier for toddlers to hold.
- Then, cut out small rectangles out of the brown cardstock for the tree trunks and glue to the trees.
- Using the permanent marker, number each trunk 1-6 or as many trees you’ve made.
Lay out the Christmas trees out in order and set the hole puncher alongside.
The child has to hole punch as many holes as it says on each tree! Super fun and engaging!
What is my child learning and improving?
- Numbers (the child is visually seeing each number and the number of holes for each)
- Counting (counting out loud as the child makes each hole helps the child learn the order of numbers, etc.)
- Fine motor skills (pressing the hole punch. It’s not that easy and takes skills!)
- Small motor skills
- Hand-eye coordination
