I'm all about finding a deal and making the most of craft store finds. This weekend I was at Michaels and saw these
There are 68 hearts in the small package! So I thought I would put together a couple of centers that I could reuse for a few weeks.
I numbered the back of the plastic hearts and put plastic coins inside each heart. We haven't started our money unit yet but I have a group of very high students in math that are ready to count coins. I am planning to change the amount in each plastic heart each week for the month of February. (Wish I could find a spot with better lighting than my kitchen counters!)
I created a recording sheet for it too!

There were also some cute tins in the dollar section. I thought I could grab a mix of hearts from the hearts bag and place them into tins. I number the back of each tin. You could also just use a baggie. At the end of the week I can change out the hearts so students can use the center the next week with different results.
|Busted out the paint pens to be a little more decorative!|
I have a recording sheet for this station as well. There are two versions: the second version has the word bag in place of tin.

Now rush out to your local craft store and grab these goodies before they are gone!
*I would love a comment if you choose to grab and download*
Have a great evening!
