Valentine’s Day Party Games for Adults
While it is a day for romance, it is also a party. Break the ice with some Valentine’s Day party games. Here are just a few couple’s games:
Couple’s Trivia – Both partners are given a questionnaire. They are both to answer questions about the other person. The couple who gets the most right will win. If there is a tie, come up with some more difficult questions. Whoever wins that round will win the prize. This is a game to see how well the couples know one another.
Paper Dance – This is a competition between couples and gives the couples a chance to be close and talk or kiss or whatever! Start off with a decent sized paper. After each song, the paper is folded in half. The couple that can stay on the paper without slipping or falling off wins!
Heart Toss – Grab your partner or divide into teams. One person will hold a large basket. Your partner or team member will stand 10 to 15 feet away. He or she will toss candy hearts into the basket for a designated time. The couple or team with the most wins.
Don’t forget to allow time for the couples to talk. Make it into a game. Have each person describe the other with a word or phrase. This is a great ice breaker! It is the perfect excuse for someone to express exactly how they feel. Your Valentine’s Day party will be one these couples will remember forever.
