Create a relay race in a classroom hallway, living room, or outdoors in your backyard. This is a fun active game that will get the kids moving and compete to be the first team across the finish line.
First, create a Relay Wand with a Valentine’s Day theme. Use a paper towel roll that you can cover with red paper and hearts. Then pick teams with 3-4 kids.
Then make your race track if you only have a small space have the kids go from their team around a chair and back to their team members. The kids could also hop one way to add a challenge. If you have more space add more obstacles to run around.
The first team member runs the track then hands the relay wand to the next team member they continue until the last team member races back with the relay wand.
If you have a larger track you can have the team members space out around the track. When their teammates reach them they get the wand and run to the next team member until the final team member crosses the finish line.
Heart Obstacle Course
Create a fun Valentine’s Obstacle Course using paper hearts made out of construction paper or poster board. Have the kids hop on the heart shapes like a frog then race around cones jump through the hula hoops and walk over a balance beam.

Valentine’s Ping Pong Toss
For this fun valentine’s game, you are going to line up 4 -5 red buckets or Valentine’s Gift Bags. You will also need ping pong balls for them to toss into each bucket.
Kids will step up to a line you create with tape on the floor and try to toss the ping pong balls into the bags/buckets. See who can get the most ping pong balls into the buckets.
Valentine’s Charades Words
Charades is a great group game to play at Valentine’s Day parties. All you need is some Valentine’s Day-themed charades words and you’re ready to play.
Add the charades words to a bowl when the first player is up they pick a word from the bowl and act it out without talking. Then the rest of the group tries to guess the correct answer. Keep going so that all players get a chance to act out a word.

Ice Cube Race
An Ice Cube Relay Race is a fun game to use at a School party it has basically no setup and works great in classroom hallways. For this winter-themed game, all you need is a white styrofoam block. I find them at the dollar store by the fake flowers.
Have the kids break up into two teams and line up. The first player in each line puts the ice cube (styrofoam block) between their knees and races around a chair you place a few feet away.
When they return they give the ice cube to the next player to go. You keep going until all the team members have finished. The first team to get everyone back wins the game.
