Counting Hearts – Valentines Day Math 

Counting Hearts is a simple valentine themed math activity for preschoolers to practice counting and number recognition.

What you need

  • Wooden Numbers
  • Heart Gems
  • Felt Heart Mat

How to

  • Place the numbers, heart gems and heart mat on a tray. You could find all these in dollar store.
  • Set the activity tray and invite your kids to play.
  • Let them pick a number of their choice and place it on the heart mat.
  • Then, count & place the heart gems on it to match the number.

    Miss A(3yrs) loved to touch and use the heart gems. They were very cute and irresistible. We arranged the numbers in numerical order and then picked one of them to count with. She usually counts only upto 6 in any counting activities so i gave her numbers 1-6, but with this she wanted to try counting with more numbers and so we counted upto 8. She kept repeating it so many times, I couldn’t keep track of it. 😀 We also traced the heart mat with the heart gems.
