Fun Family Games for Valentine’s Day

Who Do You Love?

This is a great game for your family if you have small children.

No winners or losers!

Materials needed:



  • Arrange chairs in a circle so that the seats are facing inside.
  • The player who is “it” stands in the center of the circle, and the other kids sit in the chairs facing her.
  • The “it” approaches one of the seated children and says, “Who do you love?” The player who is approached must come up with an answer, such as “I love everyone wearing pink” or “I love everyone who has a dog,” and then anyone wearing pink or who has a pet dog must stand up and scramble to find a new seat.
  • Players cannot shift to the seat next to them, should it become vacant. They must move at least two chairs away from their original spot.
  • In the meantime, “it” should try to sit down in one of the vacant chairs.
  • Once everyone finds a spot, the one player left standing becomes the new “it” and must then approach a seated player and ask, “Who do you love?”
  • Play until everyone wants to stop!

Valentine’s Games That Your Family Will Love!

Valentine’s Day Party Word Mix

Love word games?

Here’s the game for your crew.

Materials needed:

Index cards


  • Before the game, write on index cards thirty different Valentine’s Day related words.
  • Mix the cards up and place them in the middle of a table and have each person select two cards.
  • Each person then composes a song or poem with those two words in it.
  • Then each person reads his poem or sings his song out loud for the entire family.

Valentine’s Day Wink

Such a simple game that ends up in giggles!

Materials Needed:



  • Make a circle of chairs, half the number of participants, plus one.
  • Have half the people stand behind the chairs and half sit in the chairs. Make sure there is one empty chair with a person standing behind it.
  • The person standing behind the empty chair is “it.”
  • “It” then picks one of the people sitting in the chairs and winks at them. The person in the chair has to race to the empty chair before the person standing behind her tags her. If she is tagged, she remains in her seat and “it” winks at another person.
  • If the person in the chair gets into the empty chair, the person behind her is the new “it.”
  • Repeat as many times as the players want!
