Welcome Holly,

Hello everyone! I’m Holly from Paisley Petal Events and I’m honored to be here at Skip To My Lou sharing a fun & free printable Valentine’s Day game for kids!

Valentine's Day game for kids - Don't Eat Val

So I have a couple of kids in elementary school and it seems that I always get volunteered to be the room mom and/or help with those classroom parties for the holidays. Because of that I’m always looking for new games and activities to keep the kids busy for that hour of the party. All my kids just LOVE the game “Don’t Eat Pete” so I decided to make my own fun version for Valentine’s Day – “Don’t Eat Val” with trendy little fox graphics.

Don't Eat Val - a super fun Valentine's Day game for kids

Here’s a quick run-down of how to play, in case you haven’t played before. First you place candy or other little treats on each square of the board game. Then choose someone to go out of the room or just far away that they can’t see or hear what’s going on around the game board. Everyone else chooses which square is going to be “Val” and keeps it secret. Tell the person to come back and then that person starts taking the candy off of the game board one square at a time (and eating it if they want). When they choose the candy covering the square that’s “Val” everyone yells “Don’t Eat Val!” Then it is the next player’s turn and you continue in the same way until everyone’s had a turn and time runs out.

Everyone will have a blast with this free printable Valentine's Day game for kids - Don't Eat Val

You can print this fun little game at home on your color printer, or download the PDF file and run it to Staples or Office Depot/Max to have them print it. I had mine laminated as well so I could re-use it for other years.

I also have JPEG files available in an 8×10 & 11×14 to print at Costco or another photo center.




Tip: For the JPEG’s, once the image downloads and opens in a new window, simply right click and save to your computer. Then you can upload it to a photo lab.

Thanks so much for having me Cindy to share this quick Valentine’s Day activity for the kids, I hope some of you can use it for your parties this week!

    Thanks for this adorable printable! We love to play Don't Eat Pete (or the holiday equivalents) at snack time - we use grapes, pretzels, craisins, nuts, etc. That way the kids can keep playing as long as they want without getting shock full of sugar! They'll love this one!
