I am in my third trimester. I am tired and a bit grumpy. I had so many grand plans for heart themed activities.
I had to sneak one last Valentine's Day learning activity in.
At least we did one.
Here it is.
Valentine dice count
You will need:
To make the number board, cut a piece of construction paper in half, lengthwise so you have 2 long strips. Glue or tape together to make a long board, then mark out 12 spaces. Write the numbers 2 through 12(with a heart sticker "free space" in the middle) in each of the sections.
I am working on cooperation and turn taking with my boys, so we played this together. Each one rolled a die. We counted the dots together on both dice, then put a conversation heart on the corresponding number. I had the boys take turns placing the candy heart on the game board. If we rolled a number we already had covered, we rolled again until we got a new number. They loved this simple game, and played well together.
