The sense that “love is in the air” is never more apparent than on Valentine’s Day! Love is seemingly everywhere we turn. Although we should always be showing our friends, family, partners, and children how much they are loved, Valentine’s Day is a great occasion reserved solely for the purpose of expressing our ooey-gooey feelings of love.

Of course, with any holiday comes a perfect excuse to be festive and party. In schools, common activities include making Valentine’s Day “mailboxes,” exchanging cute cards, and getting loaded on sugar by way of candy, cookies, and other sweet treats. Outside of schools, lovers like to go on dates, dance, and give flowers, teddy bears, and boxes of chocolates (can’t forget the chocolates)!

Romance is one of the words most closely associated with Valentine's Day. Can you guess the other 99 words on the list?

Valentine's Word Games

A great way to really get into romance's favorite day of the year is to put together some word games and activities. Whether you’re a school teacher or just someone looking for something to do that’s related to the holiday, there are plenty of games you can make and play!

  • Memory: Using cardstock, cut out playing card-sized pieces and write a word on each card with an associated picture (optional), making sure that each word is on two different cards. Then you play the classic game of memory!
  • Pictionary:Drawing is fun, especially when it is done in school and replaces traditional assignments! Once again, make cards (no doubles needed) with Valentine’s Day words on them. Teams are split up, a timer is set, and the artist has 60 seconds to draw a picture while everyone else on their team tries to guess what it is!


  • Charades: This is played the same way as Pictionary, but instead of drawing the words, you act them out!
  • Crossword puzzles: With so many words to choose from, you can make the puzzle as small or as large as necessary for whatever audience you’re entertaining.
  • Word searches: Word searches are another one of those activities that can be tweaked to suit any age group or audience!
  • Valentine’s Day word jumble: Take a bunch of Valentine’s Day words and scramble them up to be unscrambled. Make a bonus word by taking a letter or two out of each word by putting a circle around that space, and have a riddle to go along with the bonus word.
  • HEART: If you’re familiar with BINGO, this is the same concept. You take a standard BINGO grid, and rather than using BINGO numbers, you have a word bank that everyone can use to fill in words related to Valentine’s day!
  • Crafts: Everything should be red, pink, and lacey on Valentine’s Day. Crafts are fun for all ages, so think of a few words and use them in your crafting!

All of these ideas tend to be fun, especially when there is an incentive to win! Award a piece of candy such as NECCO Sweethearts or heart lollipops to children who participated and won.

Valentine’s Day may be a day of love, but what is it for those who don’t have someone to share their affection with? Getting into the spirit sure is a good idea, and by playing Valentine’s Day games, you can do just that! Who knows, you might just catch the love bug and confess your undying admiration to your secret crush—what if . . . just what if . . . they feel the same way? Get into the holiday spirit and enjoy yourself. Spread the love all over!
