I’ve got an easy activity for your toddlers to keep busy this Valentine’s Day or any other day, really! It’s super easy to set-up and helps little ones familiarize, recognize and memories numbers!
My little Vik is 2 and is usually tagging along with her sister (4) when it comes to activities and crafts we do. #momguilt bugs me every time! But I do try to come up with activities JUST for Vik so he wouldn’t feel left out and of course so he could learn as well! His activities are simple and easy, age appropriate and provide the perfect amount of education. This Raining Hearts Counting Activity bursts with colors attracting and engaging the little ones, is simple yet stimulates and improves cognitive skills and of course helps them learn numbers and counting!

–Sharpie (I used pink)
Start by cutting out a large cloud, I just free-hand drawn it first and then cut out. Next, tape it to the white cardstock (I trimmed the white cardstock just a bit to be the width of the cloud, totally optional!). Now for the last part, write number 1-10, or as I did 1-14 randomly or in order on the white cardstock under the cloud. And write the corresponding numbers on the back of the foam heart stickers. That’s it!
What is my child learning?
-Numbers (recognizing, memorizing, naming, counting)
-Fine motor skills (peeling away the back side of the stickers, holding the stickers)
-Independency (this activity is perfect for independent play, quiet time, as a boredom buster or busy activity)
