Those cute little conversation hearts that show up around Valentine’s Day are the perfect supply to sweeten up math time with your preschooler, kindergartner, or first grader this February! Since they come in different sets I have two free printable graphs for you to choose from to make sure the colors on the graph match your box of candy hearts.
While you have candy hearts on hand hop on over and grab a copy of our free 10 frames Valentine’s Day Cupcake Cards.

Candy Heart Graphs (available to download for free at the end of this post)
Give child some candy hearts, a graph, and something to write with.
Have them sort the hearts by color and place them on the graph.
Have child count the hearts and write the amount on the totals page. If your child is not writing yet you could write the numbers for them. Little Tiger traced the numbers after I wrote them.
The kids had so much fun doing this activity we did it several times. When they decided they were done (and they had earned their candy–hehe) I let them eat some of their candy.
