Instead of Bingo on the card use HEART or CANDY or another five letter word that has five different letters.
Fishing for Love
Create a simple fishing game where each player has a fishing pole that they fish for hearts. Each heart is make by taking two small cut-out hearts (the same size) and taping a large paperclip to one heart, and taping the two hearts together. (The paperclip will stick to the magnet on the fishing pole.) Make the fishing pole by taking a short stick (or valentine pencil, not sharpened), tie a string around the end of the stick and tie a magnet to the end of the string. You can buy magnets with holes in the center at most school supply stores. Have different size hearts to catch. Each heart gets exchanged for different “goodie” such as a chocolate kiss or small valentine trinket.
Dancing Noah’s Ark
Divide the guests in guys and gals into two parallel lines facing each other across the room. Have a list of animals each on a piece of paper in a box. (Two sets of these are needed.) Each guy takes a paper which assigns him an animal. The gals do the same. After being given a moment of thought, everyone in the room acts like the assigned animal and walks (crawls, flaps, waddles, etc) across the room in search of their mate. No human language is allowed. When people think they have discovered their mate, they go to the referee. The pandemonium proceeds until everyone has been mated. Once everyone finds their mate, a song is played and everyone dances with that partner. This is done a few times throughout the party.
