One of the activities I put in my kids' Valentine mailboxes involved M&M's, which they both love. This was a super simple activity and worked on number recognition and counting. I drew 8 hearts on a piece of paper and numbered them one to eight. I included a small bag of M&M's.
The kids had to put the correct number of M&M's into each heart before they could eat them.
We've also practiced number recognition with Hershey's Kisses (we like chocolate around here) by going on a Kiss Hunt.
And for some great Valentine counting books, please check out our Valentine story props.
What Valentine's Day math activities do you have up your sleeve? I'd love some more ideas.
