Have tons of fun adding with these cute Valentine’s day addition cards. Practice adding from the teens up to 30 with these cards. It’s a fun way to do math without those boring worksheets.
I’ve even added a number line to help your child with the math questions for those who are just learning to add up to 30. Themed learning activities are a fun way to get them excited and ready to jump into learning!
I tend to do this with all of my content – have seasonal or holiday printables. This keeps them interested and makes the lessons a lot of fun as well!

Valentine’s Day Addition Cards
The great part about these learning addition cards is that they’re perfect for building the confidence in your child. We all know that once you feel frustrated with a topic, it’s that much harder to stay motivated and want to continue to learn.
This is why I use these clip cards quite frequently and change them up as the seasons and the holidays change as well. They’re a simple way to have your child work on number recognition as well as understanding how to solve the problem as well.
Valentine’s day addition card supplies
All you need are the simple supplies to get started!
Print out the cards onto paper or cardstock, then laminate them so they last longer. Cut them out with scissors and store them bound with an elastic or in a Ziploc bag.
You can use clothespins for the child to clip onto the correct answer or you can have them place a pom pom or glass bead on the correct answer. If it’s laminated you can have the child circle the correct answer with a dry erase marker.
Recommended Valentine’s Day Books for Kids
To extend this activity, I always like to throw in any books related to your theme. Those can serve as jumping-off points to create book-related crafts, sensory bins or fun Valentine’s day cards that are homemade.
Books also have so many options for discussions as well. This why why we try to incorporate books into our lives daily. We sit down, read together, and talk about what we’ve read. The kids really like to take turns reading or to have a discussion about what we’ve read at the end of the process.
I’m a huge fan of handprint crafts to capture your kids’ tiny handprints as keepsakes.

As we move into the teens and twenties for addition, it gets a little more complicated for little ones so I added a number line to help your kids figure out the answers.
Teach your child to count on from the first number rather than starting all the way from 0.
