Cut out a variety of different sized hearts. Give them to
your child and have him line them up according to size. Big to Little
or Little to Big.
There are many occasions around Valentine's Day to count hearts.
- Look through the ad section of the newspaper with your child.
How many hearts per page?
- Count actual Valentines your child is giving or has received.
- Hide paper heart cutouts around the room and have your child
count as he finds them.
QUEEN OF HEARTS
Remove the hearts from a deck of cards. Remove the King and Jack.
Turn the cards face down on a table. Take turns with your child
drawing a card and saying what number it is. The game is over when
someone draws the Queen of Hearts.
MATCHING HEART CARDS
Take the heart cards out of two decks of cards. Shuffle the cards
and have your child spread out the cards and look for heart pairs.
