    Hearts to Hearts, A Printable Card Game by SaynotsweetAnne

    Posted by  ·  January 26, 2013

    Well hello again! Goodness, it seems like I’m allowed to hangout with you all more and more these days. I love guest posting for the wonderful Cindy. In fact, I was here last Valentine’s day, sharing both my Conversation Hearts BINGO and Sweet Candy Bottles!

    Anyhoo, my name is Kayla and I’m from I have been all about the big V day this month, and I’m super happy to be able to share some of that with you today. Hopefully you’ll come visit me at “home,” my blog covers an array of fun things like crafts, recipes, and LOTS of printables. I’d love for you to visit me at my blog, on Facebook or Twitter!

    We all know that Valentine’s day usually means a bunch of candy. More and more children’s parties, classroom activities and family play time revolves around something sticky and sweet. Well, not for me this year!! I’ve got a great kid-friendly game that is easy on the pocketbook, and easy to make. Check it out!

    Heart to Hearts plays just like the popular game Apples to Apples. Basically, there are two decks. Each player draws several cards from the “answers” deck. Then, when it’s a player’s turn they draw a card from the “questions” deck and pose that question to the group. The group must answer with one of the answer cards in their deck- hoping to be the most correct out of the bunch. Usually though, the answers and questions don’t quite match up and they are hilarious!

    Examples from this deck:

    I worked hard to make sure all of the words and phrases are pretty G rated. (For anyone who has ever played Apples to Apples knows it can get pretty dirty minded!) So this is a safe for any classroom or family game! Oh, and did I mention its EASY AS PIE to make? (With less ingredients.)

    Also, there are a few blank “question” cards in the printable, so if you’re working on vocabulary words with your kids, or if you want to use pet’s names, or favorite toys in a question- just write those in!

    You Need:

    • Two colors of card stock, approx 5 sheets for each deck.
    • Black and white (or color) printer.
    • Scissors.

    How To Make It:

    1. Download the Answers PDF, the Questions PDF, and the Backs PDF.
    2. Print the answers and questions on two different colors of card stock.
    3. Run the Question and Answer pages through your printer again, this time printing the Back PDF onto the back side of the card stock.
    4. Cut along the lines shown on the back of the cards.
    That’s it! If you wanted, you could use a corner rounding punch for a little extra pizzazz in your decks.


    I just love this cute little game, its light weight, doesn’t cost a fortune to buy, print or assemble, and its adorable! You’ll have loads of fun playing this little phrase game, and I hope it brightens your day!

        I am not sure what your issue is? Can you explain a little more? Backs and fronts?
