When it comes to games, I’m all about super easy. These games you can print at home and play at home. You need very few supplies too. Mostly just a printer and paper. If you don’t have a printer, send it to your local print shop and get them printed there.
I’ve got three games for kids that are super easy I’m sharing today plus a few ways to play them. The thing is, you don’t have to play them just one way. You can use them for so many different things. I’m going to show you how to make the coloring pages into a puzzle, the matching hearts into a memory game, and more. Let’s get to it!
Super Easy Valentine Games
First things first, download the valentine games in the Printables club. For as little as $9/month you can access 1000s of designs to celebrate everything.
For the coloring pages, you can cut them up and make them into a puzzle. To do this, all you need to do is cut it into fun shapes (any will do!) and then it’s a puzzle! Two games in one, or just color and hang them around for the day. They can also double as cards for kids. They get to open it and color it.
Things I love
The Things I Love game is perfect for kids to really give meaning to the holiday beyond the candy. As a bonus, you can also download the Things I Love About My Family to make it even more meaningful. Make it a family activity.
This last game is my favorite because it can be played so many ways. I’ve got four ideas for you. I’ve also included a video to help show you how it’s done.
- Classic memory matching (flip over and try to match by memory, keep the ones you match, the person with the most matches when no more are left, wins)
- Use them as a learning tool. Match by color perfect for kids learning their colors, of course or match by word for kids learning to read.
- Cut the hearts into halves and make it a puzzle. Kids will match up the jagged lines. Check the video below for more details.
- Finally, get some of those candy hearts! Match up the colors! Simply match them, or see who can stack them the highest.
All these games were designed to be simple to print and play at home. Need more fun ideas that make life easier? Sign up for weekly celebrating tips sent each week to your inbox.
