If you wish (and I highly recommend), laminate the printable for durability and to be re-used at a later date.

Cut each heart in half; to create symmetrical shapes-- cut a vertical line in each shape.  However, you could also cut the hearts in half diagonally, zig-zag, etc!

Valentine Game for Little Ones

Once the hearts have been cut into two pieces, simply have your toddler or preschooler try to put them back together again by matching the shape in the middle of each heart.

Some shapes included in this printable are:
  • heart
  • star
  • diamond
  • circle
  • octagon
  • triangle

This puzzle matching activity is a great way to work on shape recognition with your little one!

For some extra fun, set up a simple sensory bin filled with rice.. pom poms... shredded paper, etc. and stick the matching halves at random throughout the bin.  Your child will love digging through the bin to find the matching pairs!
