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.
2. On a piece of paper, draw 6 hearts and write numbers 1-6 inside.
3. To play the game, have your child roll the die and then color in the heart that matches the number on the die.
Little Brother got excited about this game!
