This set of 10 fun Christmas-themed tangram puzzles is a great activity for classroom centers, fun homework, and winter break fun for you and your family!
What you’ll get:
• 10 new fun puzzles: Christmas Tree, Reindeer, Santa Claus, Present, Santa Claus with Toys, Elf Holding Present, Woman Holding a Candy Cane, Santa with Cookies, Elf Admiring Tree, and Elf with Bag of Toys
• "Make Your Own" Page—print this page and have students create a puzzle of their favorite Christmas activity, present, or what else they can imagine! Students can then trace the main outline of their puzzles and have other students solve them!
• Choose between color and black and white options (black filled, outline, and Christmas tree pattern)! (Psst! Want to print a few for a fun holiday game to reuse over and over again? Print the color puzzles, laminate them, and use them each December in math stations, holiday parties, and more!)
Guided Puzzles for Differentiation
• The same 10 great puzzles, but with the shape outlines provided. This is great for differentiation or for younger students!
• "Make Your Own" Page—print this page and have students create a puzzle of whatever they can imagine up this Christmas! Students can then trace the main outline of their puzzles and have other students solve them!

Tangram Pieces for Cutting Out!
Color, Black, Outlined, or B/W Christmas Trees!
(Please note that since the sizes of tangram sets teachers and parents may have will vary, the puzzles were not designed according to the dimensions of a particular physical set—the provided pieces to print and cut will fit perfectly. Just print, cut, and solve!)
Use the all-on-one-page answer key for quick checking, or use the full-size answers for students to check their own puzzles (without seeing the answers to the others!).
Files are provided as a zipped folder of multipage PDFs for easy full-packet printing and also as individual pages if you’re looking to quickly print just a puzzle or two!
Have fun, and Merry Christmas!
