Pull out a box of candy hearts for some playful estimating practice this Valentine’s Day. It’s a fun sneak peek at our popular Valentine’s Activity Pack!
Prepping the activity was as quick as it comes.
I simply printed the estimation sheet (below) and grabbed a box of candy hearts. Easy peasy!
Estimating Candy Hearts
The download includes an option for kids to grab just one handful of candy hearts. That sheet is perfect for pre-K kiddos.
But since I was doing the activity with my kindergarten son, I decided to use the TWO handed version instead.
Middle Brother (age 6) happily grabbed two handfuls of candy hearts from the pile and took a quick peek at his stash before writing down how many hearts he thought he was holding: 14.
Then he carefully began counting the hearts one by one to check his guess.
He was just four off!
Middle Brother wrote the exact count in the heart next to his guess and then grabbed a new scoop of hearts so he could estimate again.
