Do you love Valentine's Day? If so, you're probably already plotting out what songs to add to your V-Day playlist and putting the final touches on the heart-shaped cupcakes.
Or maybe you're just planning to spend the holiday at home with the kiddos because this year, February 14 falls smack dab in the middle of the week.
Whatever you've got going on, liven up the party by playing one or all of these fun Valentine's Day games that kids and adults alike will (wait for it) fall head-over-heels for.
Forgive our heart-shaped pun, but it's hard to resist tossing a dad joke in the mix because every holiday needs a little bit of humor or, depending on how you feel about Valentine's Day, maybe a lot of comic relief to get through all the talk of romance, flowers and sweet nothings.
Either way, spend V-Day doing one of these festive activities including Valentine's Day Bingo, Spot the Heart, tic-tac-toe and a slew of other DIY ideas that will appeal to almost everyone in the family.
The best part? A majority of these clever games are budget-friendly and that's something we know you're going to love.
