MaterialsA variety of simple Valentine's images. (e.g. Cupid, hearts, etc) You can also use simple Valentine's cards for the design.
ActivityForm teams of six people. Instruct each team to sit in a line, one person behind another, and take a vow of silence for the duration of the game. Give the first person in each line a pencil and a piece of paper. Then show the
last person in each line a simple image of an
object associated with Valentine's Day. That
person must use his or her finger to draw the
object on the back of the person in front of him
or her. This continues until the drawing reaches the first person in line. He or she must draw it on the piece of paper. Have judges determine which team's picture closest resembles the original picture. If time permits, play more rounds, letting team members change positions if they wish.
