Make Bingo cards using Valentine’s related items in each square, and play Bingo. (Bingo cards are typically unique for each individual. There are also usually more items than the bingo grid.

Place slips of paper with the Valentine’s words in a hat or box decorated for Valentine’s Day.

Game Play 1. Pass out the heart-shaped papers. 2. Give each child a supply of Hershey’s kisses or candy hearts to use as markers on the board. Ask them not to eat them until the game is over. 3. Draw one slip of paper at a time from the hat or box. Read the saying out loud.

4. Ask participants to look for the saying on their paper. If they find it, they should place a candy heart over it. (Make sure each participant covers the free space.) 5. Play until someone gets five hearts in a row either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. The first person to do so must yell out “Be my Valentine� and wins. Check the grid to make sure the placement of the hearts agrees with those that have been called out.
