Valentine Games
by Brenda Arnold
have fun this valentines day playing "Steal my Heart" gameSteal My Heart Game:

What You Need: Bowl of candy hearts  Chopsticks

Instructions: To set up, place a bowl of candy hearts on a flat surface within easy reach of the players and hand each person a pair of chopsticks. Set a timer for about 2 to 5 minutes, depending on the ages of your players. At "Go," contestants start removing hearts from the bowl using only their chopsticks, placing the candies in front of them. When time is up, the player with the most hearts wins.

Heart Hop

What You Need:  Pillow heart for each team

How To Play: Children divide into two teams. Give each team a heart pillow. Pillow size should be larger for younger children and smaller for older children. Have one child from each team place the heart between their legs and hop to the end of the room and back. They sit down and the next team member goes. This repeats until one team is all sitting.

Mirror Relay

Supplies for each team: Candy Bowl  Small cup Mirror

How To Play: Divide into teams. First child on each team holds cup on head. The child looks into the mirror held by another team member (or it can be mounted on the wall) and tries to fill their cup with candy. When the cup is filled, they dump the candy back in the bowl and pass the cup to the next person. First team that finishes filling their cups wins!

Valentine's Day Balloon Burst

Supplies: Balloons, candy, kids to pop them
Blow up lots of big sized balloons (red for Valentine's Day) )and before putting a knot in them, push a small wrapped candy inside (small tootsie rolls, individually wrapped lifesavers, dum-dum lollipops work well, or pieces of paper that name prizes).

Spread all the balloons around the floor at the party and let guests go wild sitting on them and popping them. Obviously once popped, they can have the treat that's inside. This can be great fun for young children.

Valentine Charade
How to play: Before the party write some appropriate phrases, book titles, song titles and famous love stories (movies).
Place the slips of paper into an empty heart box.
Divide the players into teams and have them play facing each other.
Each player will draw a slip of paper from the heart box and in turn act out their song, book, title etc. for their respective team.

Clues and Hints to remember: NO talking!  Open hands represents book   Cranking motion represents movie   Waving hand before and open mouth represents Song   Tugging on your ear represents "sounds like"   Holding up one finger means 1st word etc. Touching your nose indicates correct answer.
