How to prepare the cards:

Print the free pages in color. Laminate the sheets and cut out the cards. If you want to play a memory game where the cards need to be placed face down without seeing the pictures, rather print on cardboard to avoid seeing the pictures since it is a bit see-through seeing that it prints in color.

How to play:

Use as a simple matching game- Match the “friends”/pairs. Or, play the memory game as mentioned above where the cards are placed face down and a player picks up cards to see if it is the matching pairs.

Use a chalkboard/white board- place cards on the opposite side of the board. Draw lines to the matching cards. This works on pre-writing skills too!

Hide-and-Seek game- hide half of the cards (one of the pairs of all the cards) around the room. Let the child find the cards and match it to the friend he/she has in his/her hand. Play with a friend- divide the cards between the friends and race to find the heart pairs. First one with all the pairs in hand- wins!

Patterns- Divide the cards into two packs, one of a pair for you, the other for the child. Then, pack out a pattern with your cards, let the child copy the pattern with his/her cards.

Draw- use the cards as a drawing prompt. The kids can copy the cards and make their own matching worksheet by drawing pairs on opposite sides of the paper and then connecting the pairs with a pencil/crayon. Or, simple draw the hearts to make pictures.

So many ways you can play and learn with these matching heart cards this Valentine’s Day!

  2. Excellent post! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own post soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any tips? Bless you! herniated disc treatment
