Numbered Heart Game with Dice 300x450 Numbered Heart Game with Dice

With Valentines Day quickly approaching, I thought we would have some fun with number recognition and one-to-one correspondence!  This was the perfect activity for reinforcing numbers for Little Brother (3) while also providing some much-needed fine motor practice writing with markers.  Although this game was pretty easy for Big Brother (5), he still really enjoyed it!

Here’s what you’ll need:  a dice (or a small block and a Sharpie), paper, and markers.

 1.  If you aren’t using a regular die, draw hearts (for numerals 1-6) on each side of a small block.

    I played a variation of this with my 4 year old yesterday and he LOVED it! I gave him to dice and had him roll and add the numbers together and then color in the correct heart. I pointed out doubles and modeled counting on. He is starting to remember some combinations without have to count each time! Thank you for all of your awesome ideas!
