Valentine Game for Toddlers – Valentine Heart Hop

Cut big hearts out of red construction paper. I added the numbers (because including numbers in stress free environments will make them more familiar later on). What are you working on? Letter recognition, shapes, colors? Any of those will work instead of numbers for this Valentine game.

Hop, hop, hop. (Such a cute little skill that takes A LOT of practice.)

It didn’t take long before Big M decided to join in. I was prepared… a quick flip of the hearts and Big M could hop on the words. (Sneaking in a little sight word practice). I love it when an activity works so well with multiply age groups!

Because she’s a toddler… Little J was done hopping after a few tries.  The hearts were not forgotten though.  Plop, plop, plop back and forth to the art cabinet.

  1. I’m going to do this one with my son – it’s a perfect toddler activity. What’s more fun than hopping? I like the addition of numbers. Aiden knows most of his numbers and enjoys “counting” things, but is still working on the sequential order.
