These Christmas multiplication facts worksheets are a fun, festive way to keep those times tables ticking over.
Christmas will be here before you know it, so now’s a good time to get planning some fun and festive activities for your kids.
Now, just because it’s Christmas, that doesn’t mean that all your activities need to be related to arts, crafts and baking. Oh no! Math can be festive too (yes, really!).
Today’s post is about Christmas-themed math worksheets for practising multiplication facts.
Knowing multiplication facts and times tables is so important. Being able to recall math facts quickly and with confidence will help children in many areas of math as they progress through school.
These multiplication worksheets are a fun (and slightly different) way of keeping on top of those important times tables whilst also entering into the Christmas spirit!

Tell me about these Christmas multiplication facts worksheets!
This resource is made up of 11 different worksheets.
Nine of the worksheets practice a single multiplication table (2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s and 10s). The last 2 worksheets practice a selection from all multiplication tables (from 1 x 1 up to 10 x 10).
On each worksheet there are ten number sentences to be completed. But, in each number sentence, the numbers are represented by Christmas pictures.
In order to decode the number sentences, you need to look at the table at the top of the worksheet where you will see that each number from 1 to 10 is represented by a Christmas picture.
For example, here you can see that a gingerbread person stands for the number 5 and a candy cane represents the number 4.

Simply check the table, decode the number sentence, and write the answer in the box.
What age range are these worksheets for?
These worksheets were designed with children in grades 2 to 4 in mind. However, with this resource there is a worksheet for each individual multiplication table plus two worksheets which practise all the tables together. This makes the resource really versatile.
If your child is just starting out learning their multiplication facts, they can begin with the 10s, 5s and 2s.
If your child mostly knows their times tables and just needs to practice them to keep them fresh in the their mind, they could work their way through each single multiplication table and then go on to the two ‘All Facts’ sheets at the end.
Do these worksheets have an answer key?
Yes! An answer key is included, making these worksheets quick and simple to correct.
How can I use these worksheets in the classroom?
These worksheets make a really fun, festive math activity to do with a class of students in the run up to Christmas.
With these worksheets, differentiation is easy. As your students will likely all be working at different levels and need to practice different multiplication tables, you can simply choose the worksheets that they need to practice. Or, if a student knows all their tables, the two ‘all facts’ sheets let them practise a random selection.
These worksheets are great for classwork, homework or as an activity for a child who has finished all their classwork and needs a fun bonus activity. As children will always need to practise multiplication facts, you can use these activities each Christmas, year after year.
These worksheets are included as black and white versions as well as the colour versions shown here.
If you don’t want to print out multiple copies, one good tip for using these is to laminate them and have students complete them with a dry-erase marker. They can then check their own answers using the answer key.
