Conversation Heart Game

(Valentine’s Party Game)

          (Prior to the game, pass around a bowl of candy hearts.  There should only be four different colors of hearts from which to choose.  Each person is asked to take whichever one they want from a container that is passed around.  Do not give them a clue of what they will have to do.)

 

          At the designated time in the party, have individuals group together according to the color of conversation heart they chose.  This will make up the four groups for the game.

 

            Have the first group (purple) come up and hand the designated leader of the group the assignment for the whole group written on a slip of paper.  The note should read:  “Everyone is your group must tell what animal represents their personality and why.”

 

          Have the second group (pink) come up and hand the designated leader of the group the assignment for the whole group written on a slip of paper as well as a pen or pencil.  The note should read:  “Your group is to make up a poem by using only the words on the hearts that everyone has selected.  The leader of the group is to recite it.  You may have a couple of minutes to compose it.”

 

          Have the third group (yellow) come up and hand the designated leader of the group the assignment for the whole group written on a slip of paper.  The note should read:  “Decide on at least three people in your group to tell how they met their mate.  More may share if they like.”

 

          Have the fourth group (white) come up and hand the designated leader of the group the assignment for the whole group written on a slip of paper.  The note should read:  “Your group does not have to do anything – just smile!!!”

 

 

Note:  The white group is usually the smallest as individuals will usually choose a conversation heart of a certain color other than white.
