How to play the Roll a Heart Game
Each player will roll one dice. If you’re playing with a class or larger group of people you may be interested in purchasing dice in bulk.
Use the key on the game board to determine which color M&M should be placed in the hearts. Keep rolling the dice until all of the hearts are filled up with the correct colors. When you’re done, you can eat all of the M&Ms!
Want a candy free alternative? No problem! Simply replace with red, blue, orange, green, brown and yellow crayons, markers or colored pencils. Instead of filling in each space with an M&M, you can fill in each circle with the correct color.
Add some competition to the game:
Maybe you are playing this game with adults, or would just like to add in a little friendly competition. If so, make it a race against time!
Give every person a game board and a small bowl of M&Ms. Once the game is started, everyone will have to roll their dice and try to fill in the hearts as quickly as possible. Whoever finishes first gets to eat everyone else’s candy!
Roll a Heart – Free Printable Valentine’s Day Game
This game is designed to be printed onto a standard 8.5×11 inch piece of white printer paper or cardstock. For the very best quality I would definitely recommend printing onto white cardstock. And if you plan on reusing the games more than a few times, you might also like to laminate each game to make them more durable.
Two games will print per page. Once printed, you can use scissors or a paper cutter to separate the two games. This is the paper cutter I currently use and I can highly recommend it!
