This game is a fun way to combine Valentine's Day with math!
There are different ways this game can be played. You can have each child roll a die to see which one has the biggest number and they go first. Then you can have them draw a card and answer it. Each correct heart flashcard would then be put in their jar. They can play until them get a cupid card or until they get an incorrect answer. Each cupid card would then count one point off their answer total. Or, you can have each child alternate turns with each getting one turn at a time per play. If they get a cupid card it would still count one point off their point total. To figure out the score, add how many correct heart flashcards are in each jar and then subtract the number of cupid cards from the total. The child with the highest score wins. This game can also be mounted on the board and used as a class game for teams to compete. It would also make an excellent math center game. To make the game more durable, laminate all pieces before cutting out. When cutting out the heart flashcards, be sure to cut flashcard out in a rectangular shape. This way, when a child draws a card, they will not be able to tell the heart flashcards from the cupid flashcards. All flashcards are put in a stack face down for the children to draw a card. You can also play where they get a cupid card if they do not know the answer. The goal is to collect as many hearts as possible!
