Math is Sweet!

 

Help little ones boost their counting and sorting skills with this tummy-tempting game. With a box of candied valentine hearts, help children sort the conversation hearts by color (consider using a muffin tin to sort each color into separate bins).

For extra fun, set up shop. Let your child be the candy store owner, and you pretend to be a customer shopping for candy: “I would like to buy 2 pink hearts and 4 yellow  hearts.”

Encourage children to count them out and hand them to you. Add them up to see how many hearts you bought in total. Take turns trading 2 orange ones for 3 white ones, etc; and be sure to read the sweet messages to your special valentine.
