Cupid has lost his arrows! Help him find them back with this fun game

What You Need:

Game Materials:

  • Straws
  • Paper Hearts
  • Round container (juice can works great!)

Craft Materials:

  • small paper bags
  • string
  • various decoration items (beads, lace etc.)

What You Do:

Craft: Valentine's Mail boxes

Game: Cupid's Arrow

Cupid has lost his arrows!

There can be no Valentine's Day without Cupid's arrows!

Tell the children that they are going to help save valentine's day!

Hide cupid's arrows (attach 2 paper hearts to a straw for arrow cover juice can with pretty paper for the arrow quiver) around the room and have each child find one.

When they have found one hidden under a chair or behind a book have them come put it in the quiver.

When all arrows are found have the children hand out treats or exchange valentines cards.


Hide one golden arrow in the room. The child who finds this arrow gets to play Cupid! He/She gets to hand out the Valentine's treats or cards !

Song to Sing:

(perhaps while arrow hunt is going on)
"Who Could it Be?"

I had a little valentine sent to me. From someone....
Who could it be?
Could it be _____, ______, or ______?
_____, or _____, I don't know!

I had a valentine sent to me.
From someone ....
Who could it be?

Notes: Fill in children's names in the blanks.
Sung to tune of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"

Game: Cupid's Arrow (2)

Make a cut out of cupid to display.
Play "Stick the Arrow" like pin the tail on the Donkey.
Use mack tack (the sticky stuff) and blindfold children and have then try to get the arrows in Cupid's quiver!

Have Fun!!! :)
