23 Free Christmas Multiplication Worksheets and Printable or Online Games

While we're on Christmas "break" I thought it might be a good time to have my youngest two work on speeding up their multiplication facts. They both know them, but could be a lot faster at bringing up the answers.

We could drill the facts - but I always hated drills in school.  Since they know their times tables, but are just a little slow pulling up answers, I thought a quick (Christmas themed) daily review might do the trick.

I've been trying to have a worksheet or game printed out for the girls each morning, but its been tricky.  There are a lot of Christmas themed multiplication worksheets in the Google search, but not all the links lead to free worksheets, or multiplication worksheets, and some lead to...well...places I don't want to go.

Rather than battle it out each day, I took some time this afternoon to seek out and find enough free worksheets, and games (printable and playable online) to last from now until Christmas.  Many of them are freebies from Teachers pay Teachers.  They may not stay free forever, but once they're downloaded, they're yours.  I didn't run into any problems with any of the sites linked below, they all seem to be what they promise.

You are sharing some terrific ideas this December... just as any December prior. My daughter brought an interesting exercise from school where kids need to get to all factors of the numbers on the beehive in 1 minute - I think about 40 numbers in total. So far no luck getting to the end, but she is improving :)
