Fun with Conversation Hearts

Conversation Hearts can be used for many things that encourage learning in an early childhood environment!

Conversation Heart activities

Try these Conversation Heart activities for added learning during February:

  • Give each child a box of conversation hearts and have them sort them by color.
  • After sorting, have the children create a pattern using what colors they prefer.
  • Use a grid to graph the colors of hearts.
  • Hold up a jar of conversation hearts.  Ask each child to estimate how many heart are in the jar.  Write down their estimates.  Count the actual amount and see who is closest.
  • Play bingo using the hearts as markers.
  • Place hearts in a variety of liquids (water, vinegar, milk, etc.).  Ask children to predict which liquid will cause the hearts to dissolve first.  Add baking soda and see what happens.
  • Make your conversation hearts dance with this cool experiment.
  • Give children one minute to see how many hearts they can stack on top of each other to make a tower.
  • Have a heart relay race.  One person from each team goes across the room to a bowl of hearts, scoops one heart out with a spoon, carries the spoon with the heart back to other side the room and drops it in a bowl.  Teammates take turns until all hearts are transferred to bowl at starting line.
  • Let children glue conversation hearts onto a frame, and put their picture in the frame for their families.
