100 Hearts Preschool Math Activity

My preschooler recently showed interest in counting from 1 to 100 by herself. I know having this skill down will be a huge benefit to her in Kindergarten next year so I’ve been working on putting together some activities for her that work on counting to 100. This 100 Hearts Preschool Math Activity puts some fun into learning and is a great compliment to Valentine’s Day since it’s all about hearts. We used fun little heart stamps in this activity but you could also use heart stickers as an alternative. Make sure to check out more creative preschool heart activities at the bottom of this post.

100 HEARTS PRESCHOOL MATH ACTIVITY

 


Supplies:

Directions:
1. Start by printing out the 100 Hearts Chart Printable. I couldn’t fit all 100 squares onto one page so it’s two pages. If you want to connect the two pages together like I did, cut the top off of the second page (ending at the start of the table) and then line it up and tape it onto the first page.

2. Gather your dice and heart stampers and the activity is all set up and ready for your preschooler.

3. Have your preschooler roll the dice. Count the dots. (This makes great counting practice for preschoolers.)

 

4. Add that many hearts to your chart. (More counting practice, together with hand to eye coordination getting those stamps into the squares and fine motor work using the stamper.)
5. Continue rolling the dice and adding hearts until you reach 100.
One of my favorite parts of the activity was how my preschooler stopped several times and decided to count how many hearts she had so far. This is what I had hoped for so I was excited to see her direct the activity all on her own. Since our ultimate goal is being able to count to 100 unassisted this was great practice for her. Since the chart is set up as rows of 10 squares, this also helps to practice counting by 10’s. You can even write the numbers (10, 20, 30, 40, etc) on the side of the chart.
