A candy heart stacking contest
Have everyone sit around a sturdy table and give them at least 15-30 candy hearts and have them build as high as they can with the hearts within in a given period of time (30 seconds to a minute is plenty). If their contraption falls, they are out. Keep playing the game until you are down to two final contestants. Have everyone cheer him or her on as they try to build the highest (and longest-lasting) tower of hearts. Be sure to have a prize for the winner!
Valentine’s Day-themed bingo
Instead of letters and numbers, create bingo cards (or find some online to download) that feature pictures on them like hearts, flowers, cupid, arrows, roses, and other Valentine-themed images. Be sure to have several prizes on hand like candy, chocolates, roses, or balloons so you can play a couple of rounds!
