[Edited…this fits in with our Shark Week theme because I love sharks!]
This hearts matching game was inspired by Lisa from Libraryland!
These hearts were made with an Ellison die-cut machine. I went home and puffy painted them. (The ones that look smeared were created because I messed up the design I was working with or because the puffy paint sputtered!)
I used these in toddler storytime (theme: hugs and kisses) and had the toddler find their match “friend” and put them on the board together. Obviously the toddlers needed parent/caregiver help, but that was just my tricky way of getting everyone to participate!
