Conversation Heart Hop – Valentine’s Day Gross Motor

Conversation hearts have been around at Valentine’s Day for as long as I can remember.  I’ve noticed that the “conversations” on the hearts have evolved over time.   The  hearts for the conversation heart hop game have movement based words as their “conversations.”  It’s a simple, fun game that can be enjoyed by all age levels.  Along with the valentine delivery game, the conversation heart hop is a great gross motor game for Valentine’s Day !

Option 2

  • Place the same number of hearts as students on the ground.
  • Have students walk or hop on hearts until music stops.
  • When music stops students must perform the activity on their heart.
  • When music starts students start moving between hearts again and play continues.

This can easily be modified to a musical chairs like game.  Have one less heart than students playing.  When the music stops the student who is not on the heart is out.
