What you need: You need paper hearts, music, and small prizes like candy and stickers.

How to play: Before the game, cut out paper hearts. Write a prize on each heart and then fold the hearts in half. Have players stand in a circle and count them out loud, asking each player to remember her number. Give each player a heart.

The rules: When the music starts, players will pass their hearts clockwise as the music plays. Pause the music and pull out a number. The player who has that number will open her heart and receive the prize written on the heart. Keep playing the game until you run out of prizes.

The winner: All players whose numbers are called are winners.

What else you need to know: You can play songs with "heart" in the title to apply to the theme.
