Valentines Day Activities For Seniors
Valentines Day Games and Crafts
Roses are Red...
Use one large white poster board and title it "Roses are red, Violets are blue..." at the top center. Cut small hearts out of construction paper big enough to write a line or two on them. Have the seniors finish the next two lines of the poem and write it on the hearts. Then stick their heart to the board with scotch tape. Try and fill the board with original and funny ideas for this very old love poem. Spend some time reading them aloud when most or all of them are done.
"Who Said That?" Game
Make up anonymous valentine letters from secret admirers, and the seniors have to guess who wrote and who received each one. For example, one letter might read:
I think you are beautiful even when covered in ashes and soot. I dream of taking you away from your evil stepmother's house. When you come to live in my castle, you will ride in royal carriages instead of pumpkins. I will give you anything you want in life, whether it's glass slippers or to be able to stay out later than midnight.
Your secret admirer
Obviously written from Prince Charming to Cinderella. You could use any characters, from movies, current events or even staff members (!) that the seniors would know well enough to be able to guess. (Be careful, this could start some rumors)!
Candy Heart Bingo
Making the game:
Make your own bingo cards by using construction paper and making a grid five spaces tall by five spaces wide. Draw a heart on the center space and title it the Free Space. Open a bag of candy hearts and use the saying on the hearts to fill in the spaces on your bingo boards. Be careful not to make a board the same as any of the other boards. After using a saying, place it in a large bowl to be used by the bingo caller.
Playing the game:
Give out a board and cinnamon hearts to each player. The player uses the cinnamon hearts to mark the spaces that have been called. The caller picks out a heart and announces the saying, the player then marks the spot with the saying, if they have it. When a player has five in a row ~ up, across or diagonal, they yell 'BINGO'! And they win a prize ~ candy is a good prize for this game.
