1. Valentine’s Tic Tac Toe
This game is so simple that you’d think no one could ever lose. But it does happen.
a. DIY Valentine’s Tic Tac Toe
You can make your own with a foam heart! I made one of those, and it was well-loved.
Just draw the lines on a foam heart and use conversation hearts candy as game pieces.
Another option is to use washi tape to make the game board. Easy peasy. There are some super sweet options for Valentine’s washi tape.
b. Tic Tac Toe In A Bag
I found this fun-looking Valentine’s Tic Tac Toe at Etsy.
You’ll get a bag and 10 glass pebbles with pink and red hearts.
The burlap drawstring bag is the game board! Store the X and O pieces in the bag when you are done playing.
This Valentine’s Day game makes a great Valentine’s gift or party favor.
2. Cupid’s Cups
Items you need:
- Nerf gun and bullets
A couple of ways to play:
Stack cups (whatever amount you choose) on a table.

Option 2. Give a player one minute to knock off as many cups as possible.

Conversation hearts come in handy at Valentine’s. Thankfully, they are super cheap! You can get a few boxes for a dollar at a dollar store.
Depending on the age of your contestants, use bowls or cups for this fun heart toss game.

- embroidery hoops
- foam or cardstock hearts
Hang up embroidery hoops in various sizes. You could decorate them with pink or red ribbons, foam hearts, etc.

Foam or cardstock hearts would work great as the tags for writing the points on. Just hang or glue them on the hoops.
