Socially Distanced Valentine Party Games
Print out a Valentine’s Day themed scavenger hunt and have the children at your Valentine’s Day party set off to find as many items as possible. You can set a timer to see which child can find the most items in a certain time period, or see who can find all of the items first.
You can create your own Valentine themed scavenger hunt list, based on the Valentine decor in your own home or classroom.

Use candy conversation hearts to mark the spaces while playing a game of Valentine Themed Bingo.
You can create your own Valentine themed bingo cards, or buy a ready made set.
Catch my Heart
Have children stand in a socially distanced circle where they will toss a heart back and forth.
There are several ways to make this game fun, depending on the age and abilities of the kids in your group.
You could play a variation of hot potato. Simply toss the heart around the circle while playing some fun Valentine music. When the music stops, whoever is holding the heart is out.
Buy several heart shaped balls, balloons, or bean bags for a fun and frantic variation of Catch my Heart. Have the children start tossing a heart around the circle, after a few minutes throw another heart into the mix. Continue adding hearts until the children start dropping them.
Valentine Relay Races
Kids love to play relay races at parties! It isn’t too difficult to think of socially distanced relay races to play. Here is one idea.
Divide kids into teams and have them stand in socially distanced lines. Place a container of Valentine candy (such as conversation hearts) in a bowl in front of each team. Give each child a plastic spoon. Place a clear container for each team on the other side of the room, See which team can fill their container first.
Toss is such an easy game to play while social distancing. Simply space children apart and begin tossing heart balls or balloons. You can make this game a contest by pairing kids in teams and seeing who can successfully toss the longest, or farthest. You can even start kids 6 feet apart and have them toss, then take one step backwards each time they successfully catch. The winner is the one who makes it tossing the longest and farthest.
Simply change the name of Simon Says to “Cupid Says” for a Valentine version of the game. You can make it more fun by dressing up your Cupid with funny Valentine accessories such as heart shaped sunglasses.
Pin the Heart
Instead of pin the tail on the donkey, play Pin the Heart. You can draw a big cupid, or get a poster of a cute animal to pin hearts on.
