You have 60 seconds and a pile of Valentine conversation candy hearts. Stack the candy as tall as you can without it falling over. If it falls over, you start again. At the end of one minute, the tallest tower of hearts wins!

We played this game with six players at a time. Place a cup for each player on a table. Have the players take 4 steps back and hand them a handful of marshmallows. Tossing the marshmallows into the cups one at a time, the player with the most marshmallows in his cup at the end of 60 seconds wins! It's not as easy as it sounds!! This game would also be fun to do with a partner, throwing the marshmallows into their mouths!

This is FUN game played using a pom pom (love spot) and Vaseline. Have each player dab a bit of Vaseline on the end of his nose and hand them a pom pom ball. The first player to make the pom pom stick to their nose is the winner. I thought this one would take at least a minute... within 10 seconds, 5 of the students in the classroom had their pom pom stuck to their noses. It was tons of fun!

Using two pencils as chopsticks, each player tries to transfer as many Valentine heart candies from one plate to another. The player with the most candies on her plate after one minute wins!

This is a popular game played at most minute to win it parties! Everyone gets a cookie and places it on their forehead. They have one minute to try and get their cookie from their forehead to their mouths without using their hands!

This game was a lot of fun! The object is to bite off the end of the candy corn and stick it to the plate making a circle (on most paper plates there will be an indented line to follow). After 60 seconds, the player that got the farthest around the plate wins. Or you could have the player who finishes first wins!

This game is played like the game Dizzy Mummy. With a partner, you have 60 seconds to wrap the other person up in pink Valentine Crete paper. The only rule is that the "mummy" can't move. Since we were doing this in a classroom, I figured that would keep the injuries to a minimum. :)

The last thing that I had the students do while I was getting cookie plates ready for them was LOVE NOTE IN A BALLOON. I gave each person a strip of paper and a pink balloon and told them to write a LOVE NOTE on the strip of paper to someone that they care about. After they are done, they roll the strip of paper up and stick it in the balloon. They can then blow up their balloon and give their love note to someone on Valentine's Day! A lot of the kids wrote messages to their moms, I thought that was so sweet!

Thanks! I might have to do these at work. I did some minute to win it things for a team building at work. At first everyone wasn't hesitant, but they really got into it after a while

These look fun, but we don't really do much for VDay.

That first game wouldn't last 5 seconds in my house.

Me + Valentine's hearts candy = addiction & uncontrollable eating. lol
