Valentine's Day Party
On Valentine's Day, this game is played in pairs. You need large paper glasses, ice cream cones without ice cream and lots of popcorn in a large bowl placed in the centre. Let the pairs stand around the bowl of popcorn. As the game starts, ask each partner to put a paper glass on his/her head. He/she is not allowed to use his/her hands to hold the cup.The other partner takes an empty cone, fills popcorn and then transfers these in the paper glass kept on his/her partner's head. Play a nice catchy romantic number while the game is on. Whichever pair fills the glass first, wins.
