Let Me Count The Ways! Valentine Counting Activity
Using things like candy for Valentine counting activities and other math activities is a fun and novel way to get your children or students interested and learning. These everyday objects can bring an adorable element of fun to working on important skills like counting. This activity keeps the theme of the season while sneaking in a bit of learning! Then, enjoy a tasty treat after finishing the activity! How is that for efficiency? (Important note: do not ever eat candy if handled by multiple children. Keep some extra for snacktime!)
We love sharing links from other great bloggers who have awesome activities for learning with little ones.

Cute! I do a candy heart sorting & graphing activity with my kiddos 🙂 So much fun!
I saw this one the other day and we had to try it. My girls love doing this activity!
Isn’t it great?!
Adorable! I already know how this one is going to go down at home . . . glue one, eat one, one for Mommy, repeat!
Exactly- why I linked it over to the original , between the bark and cupcakes I have eaten enough Vday sweets!
I randomly found a 10 sided dice in my house and had my kids take turns rolling, counting the # on the dice, then putting the candies on the correct heart. This one was easy and fun!
