I started by gluing circles into a heart shape on a paper plate. Each of my kids got a different color.
I also numbered 10 red Hershey's Kisses and 10 silver Hershey's Kisses.
Then I hid the Kisses and gave Drew and Lainey their paper plates. Their job was to find their color Kisses and match them up to the numbers on the plate.
Lainey wasn't able to match the numbers yet. In fact, she totally disregarded the numbers. And the directions. The instant she saw that Kiss, she tore off the wrapper.
But she did a good job of putting a Kiss on each circle.
You could adapt this by doing letters or shapes. Math facts might be fun for older kids.
We also did a Kiss craft:
Our book today is not really a Valentine's book but still fits well with the love and kisses theme. I Love You All Day Long tells about Owen, who doesn't really want to go to school without his mother. Mama tells him that she loves him all day long. She loves him when he's making new friends and making mistakes. She loves him when he makes a mess and when he needs some help. She loves him all day long. We love the vibrant illustrations in this book and it's perfect for preschoolers and kindergartners.
