Candy hearts are a ubiquitous part of Valentine’s Day celebrations, but they’re also great for learning. This printable math activity from Buggy and Buddy is a good one for estimating and measuring.
The picture includes heart flowers of different heights. Kids can estimate how many hearts tall each one is, then use hearts to see how close their estimate was.
This is a great reminder to kids that you don’t have to always measure with a ruler. You can even extend the activity to measure items in the house or classroom, as long as you have enough candy.
