What You'll Need:

  • Red construction paper
  • Scissors
  • A CD Player or radio
  • Children's Music


Cut a 6"–10" wide heart from the construction paper.

At the Party:
  1. Ask the players to sit in a circle on the floor.
  2. Place an adult near a radio or CD player so that he/she can start and stop the music periodically.
  3. Hand one player the heart and start the music.
  4. While the music plays, the children pass the heart around the circle.
  5. When the music stops, whoever has the heart is out. Play continues until only one player is left and is declared the winner.

For younger children: Award a small prize (a sticker or piece of candy) to the child holding the heart when the music stops. The adult controlling the music should ensure that each child wins a small prize.
