3. Stick the Heart on Cupid
I must say that lots of children love this interesting Valentine’s Day amusement. Besides, you don’t need any special preparations for it.

Valentine’s Day is usually associated with lots of hearts and candies. It’s difficult to find children who don’t like sweets. So, you should definitely include them into your party activities. All the kids at your home will be greatly pleased with such tasty and sweet amusement. Buy various kinds of candies, put them into a large bowl and let the children taste all of them.

6. Sweet Hearts
By having this activity on Valentine’s Day, you will treat your kids with tasty sweets and give them a chance to create something on their own at the same time.

7. Stop and Find Your Heart
Everybody knows a popular game from our childhood “musical chairs.” Why not try one of its variations for Valentine’s Day party? Use hearts to make a circle on the floor. It is important that the number of hearts should be less than the number of children. Choose a popular song to play for this activity. When the music is stopped, the kids should choose a heart and stand on it. Those who can’t find their heart do not participate any more. The winner of the game is the only kid standing on a heart.
