Thanks to my classroom assistant who thought of this clever activity, we have been enjoying a Valentine cutting lesson while learning new vocabulary about concentric shapes.  It has also inspired me to dust off our Superimposed Geometric Figures lesson and present it to our students!  You can read more about that lesson on the post (from long ago!) HERE.

The activity set up at a table:  Colored paper; scissors, glue, pencil; set of heart-shaped cookie cutters.
The child chooses three colors and traces around each of the hearts.  Then they cut on the lines and glue their hearts making “concentric hearts.”   

Concentric Hearts to give as a Valentine or to use as a decoration.
