Valentines Mix and Match Game
This easy and fun Valentine’s day matching game is as fun to make as it is to play!
Use your Valentine’s day craft supplies (like doilies, pink and red paper, markers, stickers, glitter, whatever!). Make a set of Valentines.
We made three different, but similarly sized Valentines. Have your child help making them – making sure each one is different, so they can be put back together later!
Cut the Valentines in half, either in one straight cut or in a wavy or zig-zag pattern.
Once you have all the pieces, mix them up and piece them together! For an even more complicated game, cut them into more than two pieces each.
This project is fun for one kid to play alone OR is good for a group, or at a Valentine’s Day party! For a bigger group, you’ll need more Valentines. You can make them as a group beforehand, cut them, mix them up, each child draws one piece from a paper bag, then see how long it takes for everyone to find their matching person. It’s a great way to get kids to work together to solve the puzzles and work toward a common goal.
