I don’t know why Conversation Hearts have captured the interest of generations of Valentine’s, but they have. I prefer the ones from SweeTarts to the original sugary sweet hearts. But I have always loved the activities that go with these sweet little things. I remember using many of them in elementary school crafts and projects. And admittedly, they are versatile. I found a great Conversation Heart printable a couple of weeks ago and began to search everywhere for the Alphabet Conversation Hearts (we ended up finding them at Target) because I thought they would be perfect for our alphabet loving preschooler and alphabet interested toddler!
And then we had an entire bag of these hearts! I knew I needed to get some more ideas of how we could use them with the girls. I came up with 15 activities and ideas for Conversation Hearts for Tots! This week we are going to do as many of these as time (and our conversation heart stash) allows.
