Valentine Counting Games and Searching Activities
Average User Rating:
These valentine counting games are not only entertaining, but they're educational too!
How Many Kisses
- Large glass jar filled with chocolate kisses
- Small pieces of paper
- Valentine box
How To Play: Have children write their name on a small piece of paper and their guess as to how many kisses are in the jar. The child who guesses the right number, or comes closest, gets a heart sucker. The candy in the jar is then divided among the children. A variation would be that the winner takes the jar of candy home to share with their family.
Heart on a String
- Cardboard heart with string or ribbon attached.
How To Play: Show the children the heart. Have them close their eyes until you tell them to open them. Hide the heart with the string or ribbon attached so only the string shows. Have the children open their eyes, stand up and search for the heart strings. If they find it they should not say a word but return quickly and quietly to their seats. The first person to sit down wins and may take a turn at hiding the heart.
Find the Hearts
- 100+ Construction paper hearts cut out
How To Play: Hide the hearts while the children are out of the room. Have the children find as many hearts as they can. Then have children go back to their tables or groups and count how many hearts the whole group has. Highest number of hearts collected get to make their treats first.
Find Your Partner
- Picture of animals-children must know what sound they make (2 of each animal)
- Hat or bowl
How To Play: Have each child draw a picture out of the hat. They must then find their partner by making the sound that the animal makes and listening to the other children for an animal making the same sound as they are.
Find Your Heart-Mate
- Construction paper hearts
How To Play: Cut hearts in half either in different angles, or with decorative large cutting scissors. Hand out the hearts and have the children find their heart-mate!
