1. Musical Hearts

This activity from No Time For Flash Cards is perfect for ALL ages, and could really be recreated for any holiday! This is a great option for those of us that have kids who are getting cabin fever and need to release some energy! You’re going to label paper hearts with an action, and “It’s just like musical chairs only when the music stops you do the task on the heart that you were standing on when you stopped.”

2. Jumping Hearts

If you get through musical hearts and your kids STILL need to release some energy, The Inspired Treehouse has something else for ya. You can even reuse your construction paper hearts for this game; just flip the activity side down!

Happiness is Homemade has a great (FREE!) printable game for you! Super simple: Players roll dice to try and cover up their board before the other players. I really want to know where she got those heart shaped dice from…
