I have a confession. I love conversation hearts. The yellow are my favorite. My husband likes to tease me because he (along with most people, I assume) think they taste like chalk and refuses to eat them. However, we all know that they are cheap and kids will eat anything made of sugar. Which leads me to our printable, Race to 100: Candy Heart Edition. I’m sure many of you have used some form of race to 100. I’ve seen people use tally counters, a jar with tokens (pompoms, marbles, etc.), and dry-erase printables.

Instructions

This is such a simple activity. No prep necessary! Once you have the Race to 100 sheet printed out, just open the bag of candy and you’re ready! There are a few different ways to play from here.

  1. Use picture cards and every ten cards (and correct productions) your kiddo gets to mark off ten hearts.
  2. Roll a die, spin a wheel, flip a coin, etc. and have the kiddo practice their sound that many times. For example, roll a die and it lands on 4. Practice /s/ four times and earn four hearts.

If you don’t want to buy candy or have kids you don’t want to give candy to, I would laminate the printable and give them a dry erase marker to color in the hearts. These are the two ways I’ve seen it played, but I would love to hear more ideas.
