Winter and Christmas Counting Correlation

This Halloween math game from the Educator's Spin on It was a favorite activities of mine this fall. It took about a minute to draw/set up and it taught not just counting but the concept of quantity. I'm going to try and be more purposeful about teaching math to Chiquita because I see so many kids and adults that just don't get math concepts at all.
So since spiders and googly eyes are kind of over, I made a couple new versions of this game for this season.
First I used snowflake buttons for a winter theme. I divided the page in 6 parts and wrote numbers 1 thru 6 in the corner of each box. I made dashed lines and a circle for each snowflake corresponding with the number in that box.
Then I made a Christmas one with Christmas trees in each box and circles corresponding to each number for her to put spangles like tree decorations.
This activity can be done together - I think Chiquita got the counting aspect better when we did it together - or by themselves.
