Conversation Heart Pick Up
For this fun game, you’ll use conversation hearts or candy hearts, two paper plates, and chopsticks.
Kids will be given a plate with 10 candy hearts and will need to move them to a second plate using the chopsticks. They need to move all the candy hearts to the second plate before the time is up.
Conversation Heart Stack
Give kids each 10 conversation hearts and see who can stack the most hearts without falling before time is up.
Valentine’s Suck It Up
For this valentine’s game, you’ll need two plates, a straw, and a bag of skittles or red & pink M&Ms.
Kids will be given two plates with one plate having 10 Skittles. The kids will need to use the straw to suck up the skittles to the end of the straw and move it to the other plate where they will drop it down. Kids need to move all the pieces before the time is up.
All you need for this game is 21 red solo cups for each player.
When the timer starts kids have to stack all 21 cups into a pyramid without them falling and them unstack the plastic cups before the minute is up.
Valentine’s Day Bingo
A classic Valentine’s Day game is Bingo. It’s easy to play and simple to set up. Add some fun to the game by using chocolate kisses or conversation hearts to cover the game board where pictures have been called out. Bonus it’s a sweet treat for the kids to eat after the game.
Grab these free printable Valentine’s Bingo Cards and you’ll be ready to play.
Create a relay race in a classroom hallway, living room, or outdoors in your backyard. I find active games are a great way to get the kids moving when you need to burn some energy at the party.
Have the kids 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.

DIY Heart Puzzle
An easy game for individuals to do at the party is solving a broken hearts puzzle. This valentine’s puzzle is probably a better option for small children as it’s too easy for older kids.
All you need is sheets of paper in red, pink, or purple. You can also use Valentine’s Day gift bags to give your puzzle more shapes and images. You can find cheap ones at Dollar Tree.
Cut out heart shapes from the construction paper. Then cut those hearts up into small pieces.
Tip: On the back of the heart draw out the pieces and number them before you cut them out. This will make it easier to match the pieces later if kids get stuck.
Put these pieces in a zip-lock bag so you don’t lose any pieces of the puzzle. Layout the bags out on a table in the classroom or at the party for the kids to solve.
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.
