I am so excited to share this fabulous, free printable with you! Originally, I was going to post it on Thursday, but we've had so much fun playing it during the weekend that I decided to post it sooner so you can enjoy it!
Criss-Cross Applesauce, I created a Valentine Game: Decorate a Heart Cookie! My daughter really loved the Christmas game, so I thought it would be fun to make a similar Valentine's game. Once I got started, though, I wanted to make it last past Valentine's Day, so I made it a heart cookie--you can have a heart cookie before or after Valentine's Day! You can click on the picture or click here to download your free Valentine Game: Decorate a Heart Cookie!
The directions are simple--I also included them in the download! Basically, each player starts with 20 M-n-m's and takes turns drawing cards to see how many M-n-m's you move to your heart cookie. The download includes a game board for each player, the cards, instructions, and (for anyone who would prefer to use something besides M-n-m's) "alternative M-n-m pieces." You can adapt if for younger children by removing some of the cards and starting with fewer pieces. The game gives your child practice counting, sorting, reviewing colors, taking turns, and more! I recommend printing it on cardstock and laminating it if you plan to play more than once. Check it out here! As always, I'd love to know what you think!
