Valentines Day Activities can be both fun and educational for kids. Making counting fun is super important especially when the little ones are small.
Finding fun and simple ways to teach basic counting skills to preschool kids can really help make a difference when helping children to learn basic maths.
Today I am sharing a fun and easy number activity for the kids. Valentines is approaching and I like to think as parents we are the first teachers.
When my daughter was small I would try to make as many fun activities as possible to allow her to have fun and learn at the same time. These activities can be easy and simple and use very little materials.

How to Make This Easy Valentines Day Activity
For this project I used pink foam as it tends to last longer than paper. If you use paper you could laminate it for longer use.
I cut out love hearts from the pink foam, I then wrote the numbers one to ten on the pebbles and dotted the hearts so each one has a different number of dots.
It’s as simple as that, super quick and easy to make and you can then get the kids to match up the correct number with the correct dots. A fun and simple way to learn basic maths this Valentines.
