Find the heart sticker activity is a super simple find and match sticker activity for toddlers and preschoolers! It’s a fun way to practice shapes this Valentine’s Day!
Stickers are a toddler parent’s best friend! They are great for learning but they are also great for keeping little hands busy! They are also an excellent and inexpensive way to improve fine motor skills.
Peeling the backs off stickers can be tricky for toddlers. Between my twins N was able to do it on her own while A needed a bit of help. So don’t worry if your twin get frustrated with peeling stickers. Start peeling the back off them so that they can get the hang of it.

If you are using a sheet of stickers, peel off the paper layer that usually separates all the stickers that way they will have an easier time. Using foam stickers is also a great option as they are a little thicker and slightly easier for little hands.
Set Up Find the Heart Sticker Activity
On the white paper draw many different shapes such as circles, squares, rectangles and hearts.
Stick the paper up on the wall using the masking tape. Place the foam hearts into a bowl.
Invite your child to use the foam hearts to find and match them to the hearts on the paper.
While my twins completed this activity, I helped them peel the stickers and talked about the shapes.
If they stuck the heart on the incorrect shape I gently asked them “Oh, is that a heart? No, its a circle. Can you find a heart?”
This was a great activity for my twins and although they didn’t complete it all in one sitting they came back to it after their nap!
