These valentine games are going to make your kids' Valentine's Day classroom party a whole lot of fun! No matter what size of a group of children you have, these games should work wonderfully.

The great thing about these valentine party games is that they don't require you to purchase anything for them. All the supplies you'll need are clearly listed under each game and should be items that you already have around your home or classroom.

There are rules for each Valentine's Day game but don't afraid to change them to fit the age of the kids or size of the group. You may just come up with your own unique valentine party game!

    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, sit in chairs arranged in a circle. The standing children pick 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."

    Cut hearts out of different colors of paper and scatter them around the room. Give the kids a specified amount of time to find the hearts and count how many of each color they can find. Make this more advanced for older kids by assigning a different number of points for different colors.

    This isn't your average musical chairs! This game uses hearts that have the person who steps on it complete an action. The kids get to practice reading, get some movement in, and just have a lot of plain fun. I love this game because you can make it for little kids, teens, and even adults depending on what you want to write on the hearts.

    Write the name of some famous couples or duos on paper, and stick it to the children's backs. The other children will need to quiz each other to get clues about what famous couple is taped to their backs. You can choose to use cartoon characters, TV couples, or celebrities; ideas include Minnie and Mickey Mouse, Barack and Michelle Obama, Ricky and Lucy Ricardo, and Shrek and Fiona.

    Pictionary is a classic game for kids and adults alike. It's also easy to set up, which is a bonus for busy parents and teachers—you just need a large easel outfitted with paper and a set of markers. Offer up Valentine's Day-themed clues, which can include:

    • Box of chocolates
    • I love you
    • Bouquet of roses
    • Cupid's arrow
    • Diamond ring

    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.
