Valentine Bingo Craft/Game
bags of candy hearts
Small bag or
bingo cards. To
create each card, cut the construction paper into a five-inch square.
Use a ruler to draw five equally spaced rows and columns with a marker,
creating 25 squares. Have each player count out 25 candy hearts and
write the saying from each candy in a square. (It's OK if the same
saying appears on several of your candy hearts.)
Start playing. All players throw their 25 hearts into one bag or
box. Pick one person to be the "caller." The caller shakes up the bag,
then pulls one heart out of the bag at a time and reads the saying out
loud. Using coins or extra candy hearts as markers, players mark the
called sayings that appear on their cards. The first player to line up
five hearts across, down, or diagonally yells "Bingo!"
