Who Do You Love?
This valentine's party game is reminiscent of musical chairs, but there's no music involved. All kids, save for one, sits in chairs arranged in a circle. The standing children picks a seated child to ask "who do you love?" The seated child answers with something they love, such as "I love the color pink" or "I love dogs." Any child who also loves pink or dogs must stand up and scramble to find another seat. The child who doesn't get a seat is then "it."

All Paired Up
This Valentine's Day game also serves as an icebreaker. Rip paper hearts in half—the ripping gives the paper a unique edge—and give each child one half at the beginning of the party. Then, each child finds who has the matching half of their heart. If you have other games that require partners, this is an easy way to get the kids to double up without hurt feelings.
