Free Printable Date Night Conversation Starters

FREE Printable Date Night Conversation Starters

Jamie here!  We posted this previously as part of our frugal Valentine’s Day Ideas for a night in, but I wanted to repost for those of you who haven’t seen it before.  Now that my kids are back in school, I’m trying to focus on my marriage a little more, and I’ve been thinking that this long weekend might be a perfect time to use this idea again :)

One Valentine’s Day years ago – my husband and I were once again planning an evening in with our four kids because we were a) too broke for both a babysitter and dinner and b) didn’t know any babysitters anyway…

A couple days ahead of time, I decided to think up enough questions to create a little Valentine’s game to play with him.  (Remember how fun it was doing those silly Cosmo quizes with your teenage boyfriend?)  I came up with several questions, dares and activities and wrote them down on slips of paper.  I folded each one up and put them in a heart bowl and waited for Valentine’s Day.

Valentine Scavenger Hunt for Kids (Free Printable Clues!)

Valentine Scavenger Hunt for Kids (Free Printable!)

I’m so excited to finally share this Valentine Scavenger Hunt for Kids with you!   Scavenger Hunts are such a fun way to let your kids (or your sweetheart) know you’ve thought about them enough to hide a gift and lead them to it.   The hunt just builds the excitement and makes Valentine’s Day extra fun.

I had one of my older sons help me come up with these 12 cute clues, and we created this Free Valentine Scavenger Hunt Printable to make it easy.  All you have to do is print it, cut apart the clues, and hide them in the suggested hiding places.  Then place a little treat in the final hiding spot for your sweetheart to find!


Here’s what I’m leaving my boys this year – a barrel of monkeys (because they’re my little monkeys), a chocolate heart and a coupon for extra video game time :)


The first pages is for mom/dad’s eyes only – it’s a guide containing the numbered clues along with the place to hide each one. (See above)

The following two pages are hearts containing the 12 clues that you can cut out and hide.  (See example below)


This hunt is probably best suited for ages 5 – 12, with some easier ones and some more difficult ones that may require a little help.

Let us know if you use this Valentine Scavenger Hunt – and if your kids had fun searching for the clues!
