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!

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."

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.Continue to 9 of 11 below.

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.

- 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.
