I don't really have the planning skills to do holiday-themed play around here. But this one was easy!
I took my cue from Ladybug Girl. Last year she started showing an interest in helping with Christmas preparations a lot more, especially wrapping presents.
I was too much into last-minute panic at that time to really pay attention. Leisurely weekends of beautiful gift-wrapping are far from my reality for now.

If you've got a preschooler learning number bonds, this game is super easy to like. And if you're a busy mama, this game is super easy to DIY even if you don't have number sticks!
This idea is a DIY-version of another DIY-version. See this video by Education Unboxed where she also explains how to adapt this for higher elementary problem solving. I set this up in less than five minutes before we started playing, so I only got a chance to take a photo in the middle of game play.
We used stuff we had around. A piece of cloth, our number magnets, a pair of dice and 2 sets of stickers. I always say it's easy to think of play when you've got stuff around!
