Valentine’s Day Party for Kids

You can’t let Valentine’s Day go by uncelebrated!

This year, do more than a Valentine exchange.

These ideas are perfect for a Valentine’s Day classroom party or an informal party with friends and family.

Card Exchange

A card exchange is a classic activity for a reason.

This free printable of Camping-themed Valentines Day Cards threads the needle by working well for every age (even picky tweens!).

You can color them yourself, add a pack of crayons for the recipient to use, or print them on colored cardstock for print-and-go Valentines.

Craft It Up

Why not make a craft that doubles as a card?

This free printable flower Valentine is designed to go around a lollipop.

You could also thread it around a pencil with a topper for a sugar-free alternative.

Hunt for Hearts

Everyone loves a good scavenger hunt.

Cut out a bunch of construction paper hearts and hide them everywhere.

When you say “Go,” everyone finds as many as they can. 

The winner gets a box of conversation hearts!

Silly Poems

The classic Valentine’s poem is “Roses are red, violets are blue.

Sugar is sweet, and so are you.” Come up with your own last two lines of the poem.

The only restriction is that it has to rhyme with blue.

You can offer awards in different categories: sweetest, weirdest, funniest, most school spirit…you name it! 

Guess How Many

Fill clear containers with various Valentine-related tiny objects: conversation hearts, erasers, desk pets, pencils, crayons, or bouncy balls.

Hold a “guess how many” competition.

You can even use the items as favors to dole out after the party! 

Construction Hearts

For a fabulous STEM activity, build structures by sticking toothpicks into gummy or marshmallow hearts.

Valentine’s Party Playlist

A great party playlist is a must, and you can turn the music into its own activity by playing Freeze Dance or Hot Potato.

Here are some must-haves for your party playlist:

  • “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” by Randy Newman
  • “Sugar, Sugar” by the Archies
  • “We Go Together” by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta
  • “Best of My Love” by the Emotions
