You will need:
- Larger conversation heart candy without writing on them (I get nothing for mentioning Brach’s Conversation Hearts, just something I saw at the store that I thought was cool) You can also use large hearts with writing and just write your words on the other side.
- Food safe marker
Lay out your conversation hearts candy and write some simple words on them with your food safe marker. You will want to have 2 hearts for each word. The number of hearts you use for your game will depend on the age of your child. You will want to use more pieces if your child is older to make the game more challenging.
I didn’t want my kids eating a bunch of these candy hearts at once, so I told them before we started playing that they could choose one pair to eat. I thought they would put up a fuss about how they wanted to eat all the hearts, but they were happy with the two. I think it helped that I set up expectations before we started playing.
