A printable Valentine Heart Number Matching Activity that’s simple to set up and easy to adapt for any young learning stage.
Kids can learn to count, identify numbers, and subitize with this cute set of Valentine Heart Number Puzzles. The printable includes 3 sets of hearts that include numbers 1-10. They are perfect for any preschooler or kindergartner who is learning their numbers.
Number Match Hearts
Tally Match Hearts
Write on Me Hearts
I always like to give you options and I love deals so I made three sets for you to incorporate at home or in your classroom. The first set has numbers, the second set has tally marks, and the third set has an area for kids to write on. Each set gets pieced together to form a heart. I also made all the odd numbers red, and even numbers pink so they can be identified or sorted in an additional activity. This set can grow with your child as they learn and can fit the multi-age, multi-ability classroom.

Valentine Heart Number Puzzles
Print the Valentine Heart Number Puzzles Out on white paper. I like to use card stock because it is thicker and gives more durability to the activity. You can also laminate them for added protection.
Cut the heart pieces out. You don’t have to cut around each scalloped edge, just “bubble cut” around them leaving a thin white edge.
Cut each heart into two pieces following along the zig zag line in the middle. Optional: Don’t cut apart the “Write on Me Set” so kids just have to count and write.
Give one set of hearts to your child to match up. I like to lay one side of hearts down on the table with the numbers or hearts displayed. Then I stack the other side of the hearts up (like a deck of cards). This helps your kiddo focus on matching one number at a time.
As your child progresses you can change the activity starting with number matching, tally matching, and then ending with number writing.
