Glue a red heart and a pink heart together, back to back. From white paper, cut out about three dozen hearts the same size as the red/pink heart. Place all the hearts in the center of a bed sheet. Let children hold all edges of the sheet. When you call out "Flying Hearts," the children toss the sheet into the air to send the hearts flying. The child who finds the pink and red heart is the winner.
