Start A New Valentine's Tradition – Play Valentine's Day Party Games With Your Coupled or Single Friends
If you're in a relationship, the frustration of planning what to do with your special someone can become a tedious yearly endeavor. Inviting other couples to a Valentine's Day get-together can be a fun way to add something new to the holiday while still allowing for romantic time with your sweetheart. Valentine Bingo, Lefty's In Love, and Movie Love Quotes are fun games to play with a room full of people, so the more the merrier! These games would also be perfect for classroom Valentine's Day parties and workplace break time fun!
If you're not in a relationship, spending V-Day alone often feels like rubbing salt in an open wound. That's why having your other friends who are also single over can make the reality of the day not seem quite so depressing. Doing something different and having a Valentine's Day game night can be a fun new tradition to start.
Up until now we have not featured either karaoke or a lip-sync duel as a “go to” party activity mostly because I really, really do not like to perform. In fact, I think my husband's biggest fear is traveling to Korea on business and being dragged into a Karaoke club.
Having said all that, we love this Jimmy Fallon lip-sync duel and have to say, dueling karaoke does look like great fun. I can now definitely see this as a New Years Eve or late night party activity as good as, or maybe even better than, charades. Adding a lip-sync duel to your list of party games will appeal to guests of all ages! Choose your playlist based on your guest list. For example, if you are having lots of children, think about including some songs from Frozen. If your party is for adults only, it might be fine to include songs with lyrics that may not be as appropriate if children were present.
What could be easier? Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties – the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food, and never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves. (except for children’s parties where we plan and schedule every minute). And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there and realize things aren’t going so well. We have had political conversations go ballistic, strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing, and the freshly minted vegan choose this opportunity to proselytize. There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation. That’s where these printable holiday games come in extraordinarily handy. So be your own holiday party savior with this fun and easy way to keep the kids and adults entertained for hours during long holiday gatherings.
Get the party started with a few icebreakers and printable New Years party games! Even if you think you have plenty of party activities already planned, we recommend printing out a few games such as New Year's trivia or Mission Resolution just in case there is a lull in the conversation.
And if you are going on a family vacation this year, consider printing out a stack of games to take with you. These printable new years party games will take almost no room in your suitcase and you can surprise everyone with an unexpected night of fun! Continue Reading →
