With small children Valentine’s day is all about friendship. Will You Be My Valentine? Circle Game for Valentine’s Day is just the thing to encourage children to value their friends.
Will You By My Valentine?
Will you be my Valentine?
One, two, three,
If you want to find a friend,
Just choose me!
(sung to the same tune as All Around the Daffodils)
- The children hold hands in a circle, and lift up their arms to make windows. One child then goes in and out of the windows while everyone sings the song.
- At the end of each repetition of the song the child points to the person they are closest to, holds their hand, and then that child leads them through the windows together.
- Repeat in this way, with the newly chosen child each having a turn to lead the snake of friends, until finally everyone is chosen.
- The adult (parent or teacher) who is the last one left can make a bridge against the wall, and the children love passing under the bridge in a long line.
