Conversation Heart Valentine’s Day Game for Kids

A couple years ago, I posted this Valentine’s Day party that I planned for a church activity.  We played a conversation hearts Valentine’s Day game to help the women at church get to know each other better.  It was so much fun for everyone!  That game was geared towards adults, so I thought it would be a good idea to make a different one for the kids to play.  It’s the same game, but I changed up the printable to have more kid-friendly questions.

To play the game, get a big bag of conversation hearts (or 2 or 3 bags depending on the amount of kids) and pour them into a bowl.  Each kid takes a turn picking out a heart and reading what it says.  They find the word or phrase on the list and answer the corresponding question.  The list is in alphabetical order, so that makes it easier to locate.  I tried to find the most common conversation heart phrases, but I don’t know how much they vary from brand to brand or year to year.  The ones I used for this list were Sweethearts.  For the ones that I didn’t include or those that are illegible, there is an option at the bottom to choose any question to answer.  You can split up into small groups or play all together as a large group or class.

This Valentine’s Day game can be played at a school party or even just for fun as a family.  I played with just my kids, and they loved it!  Getting to eat candy AND talk about yourself!  What’s not to love?  Get the free printable here and let me know if you use it.  I’m especially curious to know if the phrases are generally the same for all brands of the candies.  I have also included an editable excel version, so you can change things.

Thanks for this idea! I adapted it for a high school Valentine's event and I had to laugh at how different the phrases are. My bag had "totes", "bae", "bff", "LOL" and "TTYL" along with GAL PAL, DM ME and GOALZ. I added questions like: Are you planning to attend university? If so, where do you want to go? and eliminated the younger questions like What is your favorite toy?

Haha! There's probably a committee of people that has to have a meeting about which new phrases they will use each year. Glad you were able to adapt the game to fit your needs.

Great idea! I was looking for an ice breaker game that included the candy hearts for our Senior High Sunday School class tomorrow. This will be perfect!

Thank you for this; I was looking for something with conversation hearts. I have downloaded both formats and will use it for a women's Bible study ice breaker--maybe with my grandkids, too!

Hello! We love your ideas and want to use them for our RS activity coming up next week. (Our local ward boundaries changed so we have several new ladies and this post was the perfect thing for our needs. Thank you for sharing!!) So I clicked the link you posted and opened the editable excel document but when I attempted to make changes, it told me I needed permission to edit. I wondered if you could either email me a version I can make changes on, or grant me permission to change the Google Drive version? I'm guessing the first option would be preferable for you. Thank you for your help and for sharing your wonderful skills and talents with the rest of the world! You are a blessing to many!

Sorry I haven't check comments for a while. Did you get it figured out? If you downloaded the excel version, it should have let you edit it.

Hi, I was wondering if you have link to a printable of the kids game? I would love to use it with my kids that I see for occupational therapy. Thanks so much!

Yes, the link isn't standing out very well, but it's under the second, horizontal photo. Send me an email if you can't access it, and I can email you the file.
