I love finding seasonally shaped marshmallows at the grocery store. If you can find heart-shaped marshmallows, have kids make some Heart Marshmallow Toothpick Structures. If not, they’ll be fun to make with mini marshmallows, as well.
If you don’t want to use marshmallows (or don’t have any on hand), kids can try Building a Heart Eraser Tower. If you don’t have any Valentine erasers, check your local Dollar Tree or Target’s Dollar Spot.
Here’s a fun Roll and Cover Valentines Preschool Math Game that your kids will enjoy playing as they gear up for Valentine’s Day. No plastic hearts on hand? No problem. Try buttons, mini erasers, or even candy conversation hearts.
This Mailbox Math activity have your little ones practicing shape recognition, counting, and letter sounds. And, if you put the envelopes and the mailboxes on separate tables, you’ll add some movement to this fun activity.
