Fun Games with Candy Hearts

valentine candy

  • Candy Hearts Bingo: Simple enough - instead of playing with chips or dots, play bing with candy hearts. Everyone gets to keep their candy while the bingo winners get an extra pack to take home!
  • Candy Hearts in a Jar: Fill a mason jar with candy hearts (count em') and guess how many are in the jar. Write the guesses on a scrap of paper with their name and then announce the winner!
  • Candy Hearts Match Up: Split up your candy heart supply, whether by phrase or color, and orchestrate matching games for the kids to play, i.e. play music while students walk around and circle together with others who have like colors or words on their hearts.
  • Candy Hearts Pick Up: Give each player a pair of chopsticks, a small cup or bowl, and a plate of candy hearts. Set a timer for two minutes while players try and place as many candy hearts as they can in their cup or bowl with the chopsticks. At then end, count the total number of candy hearts they were able to place in their cup with the chopsticks, and the kid with the most wins a fun prize!

Congratulations winner

Congratulations Bad Santa photo winner Lisa Ellsworth-Johnson.

Hang Loose Santa winner 2013

She says, "The photo was taken last year, just before Christmas at Honolulu Hale (Honolulu's city hall). We moved to Oregon a week later. My older son was more interested in trying to perfect the shaka for the camera, but my little guy wanted nothing to do with the jolly old man!" Note Santa's board shorts. Priceless. Thank you for sharing, and congratulations on winning the red Strider Balance Bike! Thank you to everyone who sent their photos. We've really enjoyed them.
