Valentine Printable Math Puzzles
How much fun would it be to practice math with puzzles? 🙂
I love making new activities to help kids understand and practice math. Here’s a fun way to sharpen those early number sense skills.
These puzzles can be easily differentiated. There is a simple puzzle with numeral to object match and a second one with simple addition equations.
They are so easy and simple to use! I used a file folder to paste them in and this will make a great activity for repeated use. You can however store them any which way you see fit.

Math puzzles are a great way to get your child interested in math. They can be used to teach your child basic math concepts, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
There are many different types of puzzles that can be used to teach your child different things.
For example, there are puzzles that will teach them how to add or subtract two-digit numbers or three-digit numbers.
There are also puzzles that will help the child learn how the number lines work and how they need to read numbers from left to right.
Puzzles can be great for children of all ages. They can be fun for young children who enjoy playing with toys and games while still being educational for older children who want to sharpen their math skills in preparation for high school or college.
Math puzzles are a great way to help children develop their math skills.
They can be used in different ways to teach, solve, or just have fun.
Puzzles can be word problems that require the child to use mathematical skills in order to complete the problem and find out what is happening in the story.
These types of puzzles are a great way for students who don’t like math to learn what they need without realizing it.
Math Cut and Paste Activities
Below you can see that the puzzle is scrambled up and once the kids count the love hearts, they then need to find the corresponding numeral, then cut and paste it in the correct box and so on and so forth until they complete the full puzzle to reveal the mystery picture.
After they complete it all – the puzzle is revealed! Another puzzle is included but with addition equations for further practice.
The same picture will be revealed so maybe hand this out to another group.
A black and white copy have also been included to use these in simple cut and paste math activities.
You could print them out and have the kids cut and paste their individual answers or you could laminate them and put them into file folders along with the puzzle pieces.
Number Puzzle Worksheets
Another way you could use these mats is to include play dough! Have the kids build ‘dough balls’ to match the numeral on the puzzle piece as they complete their puzzle.
You could also blow them up into large puzzles and add them to your centers for special education / special needs.
These math puzzle worksheets are included in a large bundle right here over on Teachers Pay Teachers.
I have created a set for each season / theme. Use them throughout the year!
