Uses For Conversation Hearts

We have a plethora of conversation hearts in our house so we decided to put them to use.  Here are some ideas of ways to use them.

* Sort them into color piles, or by the words written on them

* count them

*Fill a guessing jar with them and estimate how many

* Graph them

* Adding and Subtracting

*Hide them around the house for the kids or your hubby to find!

* Stack them in a tower, how big can yours get 30 sec.

* Measure: how many long is your hand, a favorite book, the table?

* Transfer them with a straw from plate to plate, see if you can move them all to another plate in 1 minute.

*Use chopsticks to work on fine motor, pick them up and put them in a jar

* Make sentences with them to work on reading

Happy creating and learning!
