Measuring Ribbons

I was looking for a quick Math Center activity with a "Holiday Flavor". I created a packet that helps students as they begin measuring (non-standard units). The options include a book, which can be copied and given to each student. Or a set of "gifts" that can be printed. laminated and placed in a Math Center. There is a recording sheet to place in the center for students to keep track of their results. I recommend using pennies for measuring, but any small unit of measure can be used (small buttons, beans, flat beads, etc. Please note while the formats look different, the ribbons in the book and on the center cards are almost identical in size. However, I'm not so sure the students would necessarily notice. You choose the way you want your students to practice measuring, or your could even use BOTH.
 In all there are 13 gifts with ribbons to measure.
