6 and 7 year olds are just starting the process of building their math skills, starting with number recognition, tally marks, counting by 5s and eventually addition and subtraction. If your 7 year old is still an Elf on the Shelf believer, treat them to a fun activity sheet that helps them practice their math skills. Leave this for them one morning so they can do it after breakfast or save until after school.DISCLOSURE: Some of the links in this post contain affiliate links, which come at no cost to you.

My girls LOVE when our Elf, Margo, brought them a craft, activity or special treat in the morning. This year with a second grader at home, I wanted to mix the magic of the holiday season with an activity that will help her practice her skills.
This sneaky elf, Margo, will be bringing this color by number math activity sheet one slow (probably weekend) morning. The sheet includes areas where the user must first use their addition and subtraction skills to solve the math problem.
UPDATE: I’ve removed my URL from the printable so feel free to print as is without any suspicion!
Then they can grab their crayons or colored pencils and color each block in the designated color.
The sheet mixes basic addition and math skills between numbers 1 – 20, so chances are, with help, some younger kids might also be able to complete this activity. In the end, a reindeer design will be revealed and you’ll know they were practicing math without them even knowing!
This activity sheet is part of the Elf on the Shelf ideas for a 7 year old printable schedule full of lots of ideas!
