Your students will love this Valentine’s Day Math Craft! It combines all the fun of a craft with shapes and counting. And it’s easy to prep and make.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
- brown cardstock/paper for the cookie shapes (circle, square, triangle, oval, rectangle & hexagon)
- light pink, purple or white paper for the frosting shapes
- bright paper (green, yellow, pink & blue) for the heart sprinkles
- white paper for the recording pages
- scissors and glue sticks
All of the patterns can be run through the photocopier or printed directly onto colored paper. This makes the craft super quick to prep!
Students gather the pieces they need: matching cookie and frosting shapes, some hearts & a recording sheet.
HOW TO MAKE:
- Cut out the cookie and frosting shapes.
- Glue the frosting shape on top of the cookie.
- Cut out some small heart shapes.
- Glue hearts randomly on top of the frosting.
ADD SOME MATH!
Don’t forget to add in a little math practice with counting and shape recognition. The recording sheets fits right on the back of the cookie shapes. Students print the name of their shape and count the number of hearts on their cookie. Need some more Valentine’s Day Math ideas? Click Here.
TIP: Instead of cutting out all the hearts… which might be difficult for the preschool crowd … use foam hearts instead.
