They then have one minute to act out the charade they picked and have their team guess what they are acting out.

Heart Charade Game
This is a fun game that is just like a cake walk only you use individual cupcakes for prizes.
For the game floor you will need a large area. Cut out 25 large hearts from poster board or construction paper and number them 1 through 25. Cut out smaller hearts and number them 1 through 25. Place these in a basket or bag. Arrange the large hearts on the floor in a heart pattern. Have the players stand on a heart and when the music begins the players walk from one heart to the next one way in a circle. Stop the music and pull a number from the basket. The players who is standing on the number of the heart that is pulled wins a cupcake. That player sits down and the game continues until everyone has received a cupcake.
Fill a large see-through container with several bags of chocolate kisses (or other valentine candy such as conversation hearts, chocolate hearts or red hots for a real challenge!) making sure to count each candy as it is placed in the container. Write the number of candies in the jar on a piece of paper and put it in a safe place. Ask players to write down their name and a guess of how many pieces of candy are in the jar on a piece of red paper. After everyone has had a chance to write down a guess tell everyone the real number of candies in the jar and find who guessed the closest to that number. As a prize the winner can receive the jar of candy!
X's and 0's Tic Tac Toe
Create a very large square tic tac toe board from butcher paper, two poster boards or a table cloth. The lines for the tic tac toe square can be easily made using duct tape. Use pink and red bean bags (or paint rocks red and pink) for the markers. The players have 5 bean bags each and take their 5 turns at one time trying to make 3 in a row vertically, diagonally or horizontal.
To play with teams write "o's" and "x's" on each bean bag and by taking turns see who can win at tic tac toe.
Crowded Musical Chairs
A great game for kids of all ages and especially funny with a large group. Play just as you would the game of Musical Chairs however after each round a chair is removed from the game and all the players remain. Players have to double up and will have to sit on others laps when the music stops. Everyone will win in the end and the game progressively gets harder each round.
Conversation Heart Stack
Give each player a cupful of Candy Conversation Hearts and see who can make the tallest stack.
Another fun way to play is to set a timer to 5 minutes and see who can make their stack the tallest. Some stacks will come crashing down and give others a chance to catch up!
Gather players and have them stand in a large circle. Give a red ball or bean bag to one of the players and tell them to call out another players name and then toss the ball to them. The person who catches the ball then calls out another players name and tosses the ball to them.
Once the players have the concept down put another ball in play so that they are throwing 2 balls in the circle. Then after a few rounds add another ball. You can add as many balls as the kids can handle. The game is very exciting and fun ... and can get a little crazy!
