Ready for a fun, Valentine’s Day twist on numbers? This festive number book gives kids practice writing and counting the numbers one to ten.
Getting the Number Books Ready
Prepping this activity couldn’t have been much simpler. I printed the number book (below) on cardstock to make it extra sturdy for durability and then used my scissors to cut apart the pages.
I grabbed a photo album I picked up at the Dollar Store and slid the pages inside.
Conversation Heart Number Book
Middle Brother (age 3) eagerly grabbed our box of conversation hearts and sat down to play.
After taste testing a few to see what color he liked best, he opened the book to the first page. He picked up a conversation heart (he’s a lefty!) and placed it on GO.
Then he used the down arrow as a guide to trace the number from top to bottom several times.
When he was finished, he dragged the conversation heart down to the ten frame at the bottom of the page and counted, “One!”
He continued writing and counting one number after the next.
And soon he reached the last page: number ten!
