Valentines STEAM Preschool Math Activity
We’ve been doing so many fun Valentines STEAM preschool activities these last few weeks and so everything heart, pink and glitter has been super fun! I know winter activities are the rage right now but in our girl house it’s all things Valentines Day! We eve tried this fun & easy science experiment for preschoolers – which we LOVED – making crystal borax hearts!!
We are focused on Math in this STEAM activity along with using fine motor skills.
Using conversation hearts and this math mat:
1- Sort conversation hearts into colors.
2- Count each sorted pile of conversation hearts.
3- Using the math mats – do basic addition with the math mats. (subtraction or numbers)
4- Use dice to roll a number and place that in an addition/subtraction box…then have the preschooler or kindergartner add those two numbers up.
This super simple Math preschool activity is engaging, relatable and actually very basic in counting and simple math skills. Be aware a few conversation hearts might come up missing throughout this activity!
These math mats can be used for so so so many Math STEM or STEAM activities. I keep them out and we use whatever objects are around or are seasonal…it’s always a plus when it’s edible too!!

We are a husband and wife team, pairing our strengths together to teach our preschooler in the most fun and engaging way we possibly can. The mister is a high school educator at Northlake Christian school in Covington Louisiana and over the Innovation Center, which is all things STEAM. I am a SAHM that blogs pretty much everything we do in our little paradise, from what we eat, to where we travel to how we teach our little one. We hope you are inspired to incorporate STEAM into learning with your children.
