This valentine party game reminds me of musical chairs but there's actually no music involved.

One child is "it" and picks another child to ask an identifying question to. The other children who can answer the question "yes" must get up and scramble to find a new seat.

Catch My Heart

In this valentine party game, a ball or beanbag is meant to represent a heart.

The kids will sit around in a circle, and the child with the ball will name another child, and toss the ball to them.

Get this game really moving with the introduction of multiple bean bags or hearts!

Valentine's Day Matchmaker

Write the name of some famous couples on paper and then 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 even celebrities.

Guess Who Loves You

Blindfold one child and secretly pick another child to come up and say "I love you" in a silly voice. Can the child guess who's whispering to him?

You could always change it where the kids say "Happy Valentine's Day" for a group of older kids.
