Valentine's Day Activities: Number Cards

With Valentine's Day approaching, Mr. Toddler and have definitely been using this time to practice counting. He's actually quite intrigued by hearts - probably a result of us spending so much time working on shapes while our winter shelves were out! 

To help solidify Mr. Toddler's knowledge of numbers (1-5), I came up with a set of number cards (available for free at the end of this post)!

We did this work in a few different ways and Mr. Toddler even ended up adding his own take on it! 



How to do it:

The first way was using a set of hearts that I had cut out and matching them to the hearts on the number cards. Those small hearts proved to be a great way to get some extra fine motor practice in!

An alternative to using the hearts is to use a fun manipulative! We had some red, wooden beads on hand!

All in all, this was a fun way for Mr. Toddler to practice counting! He even took this work into his own hands by grabbing a glue stick and making this an art project!

This way (his own interpretation of this work) was Mr. Toddler's favourite! He loved gluing the hearts onto their spots!
