Play a Valentine’s Stacking Game

I love playing this Valentine’s Day stacking game in my daughter’s classroom! The best part is that it’s quick to set up and there’s no mess to take care of after! The kids love it, they laugh the entire time they’re stacking the conversation hearts and they will want to play it again and again!

Here’s how you play:

  1. Give each kid a bag or box of conversation hearts. They will need about 20 to play this game. (Depending on how good they are at stacking.
  2. Set a timer for a minute. (Or however long you want, we played it with all different times because we like to play over and over again.)
  3. Have them stack as many conversation hearts as they can in one minute. Whoever has the most wins! (Our prize was always that you get to eat one of your hearts– but to make it fair, at the end of the game I let everyone eat all of theirs.)

Have fun playing the stacking hearts game! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day Date Ideas That Give Chocolates And Roses A Run For Their Money

1. Be A Tourist In Your Own City

We’re pretty sure everyone has the same handful of places they go to in their town. But how about ditching your standbys and exploring your city like a tourist? Check out art galleries, museums, restaurants or other local points of interest that you and your loved one would never think to visit. It’s a great way to get reacquainted with not only your city, but your partner as well.

2. Get A Couples’ Massage

Release tension and stress together with a couples’ massage package at a local spa.

3. Recreate Your First Date

Whether you split a malted or spilt it all over your date’s lap, we think recreating the first time you went out is a sweet way to remember why and how you feel in love in the first place.

4. Take A Cooking Class

Take advantage of the cooking classes that culinary institutes and gourmet food shops in your area offer. But instead of going for tried-and-true cuisines like pasta, try something a little more adventurous and different from what you and your spouse would usually order at a restaurant.

5. Have A Sexy Game Night

Whether it’s strip poker or a sexy couple’s board game, end your romantic evening with some hot fun.

6. Listen To Live Music

Jazz club, big name acts, local bands… find out who is playing on Valentine’s Day and enjoy a night of live music.

7. Visit A Botanical Garden

If she complains you’ve never given her flowers, don’t fret: bring her to your area’s botanical gardens and have her take in the thousands of plant varieties on display.

8. Take A Dance Class

Bust a move of your choice — salsa, bachata, ballroom, fox trot — on Valentine’s Day with your special someone. It can become a regular activity for the two of you!

9. Tackle A Big Bucket List Item Together

We all have a bucket list — take this as an opportunity to find out if there’s some overlap between the two of yours. Maybe you both want to go skydiving or parasailing, or maybe only one of you wants to but the other is game to join you. Either way, tackling a big bucket list item together guarantees an out-of-the-ordinary Valentine’s Day.

10. Play Hooky

With the demands and stresses of the work week, it can be hard to find long stretches of unscheduled alone time together. Take matters into your own hands and play hooky on Valentine’s Day. We won’t tell.
