Valentine Game

Posted by lbbartolomeo on February 9, 2013

My K’s and 1’s LOVE this song/game!    

This game is sung to the tune of “This Old Man”.  “Valentine, valentine, won’t you be my valentine.  Number one, number two, number three it must be you.  Take my heart along with you!”

Students are in a circle and the leader holds a valentine in his/her hand and walks around the outside of the circle as everyone sings.  When they get to the numbers, the leader taps the head or back of the nearest student ONE, next student-TWO, next student-THREE and the third one gets the valentine.  At this point then there are two ways to play.  The new person can be the leader and the former leader takes the new leader’s place.  Or the way I play it is for the new leader to follow behind the original leader so that with each verse, the outer group creates a longer and longer line until all end up in the outer circle.
