Valentine's Day Games to play with kids

Active Valentine’s Day Games

Valentine’s Day Games, for me,  are probably the hardest to come up with. I have the pleasure of finding games for Connor’s preschool class and Michael’s fourth-grade class this year. That’s a big age gap, but I’d like to find games that will work for both – less work for me. My other stipulation is that they are active games. The teachers like to get the kids up and moving with hands-on games in stations around the room. Here’s what I’ve found so far for Hands-on Valentine’s Day Games.

Musical Hearts
