Valentine Conversation Stones {+ Free Printable}

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?

What kinds of things do you do on Valentine’s Day?

For Matt and I, Valentine’s Day is laid back. We don’t buy gifts and we don’t go out to a fancy restaurant. We are happy to have a special dinner at home.

I thought it would be fun to come up with something different for the dinner and these conversation stones came to mind.

I made these stones a few years ago for a Christmas party. They were a lot of fun and sparked a lot of great conversations. I thought they would be perfect for our Valentine’s Day dinner! Often times, when Matt and I get a dinner out alone, we spend the time talking about work, bills, the kids and things that need to get done around the house, etc. Nothing too exciting. These stones will make the conversation more exciting and help us reminisce about memories we have made together.

Let me tell you how I made these Valentine Conversation Stones.

It was a lot of fun coming up with different conversation starters. I typed them up and printed them out.

{You will find my free Conversation Starter printable at the end of this post}.

Since I didn’t have pink paper on hand, I just printed them off on white paper and colored them in with a pink marker. You can make them any color you like.

After I cut out the conversation starters, I painted the glue on the back of each stone and adhered the paper on it (face side down).

I painted a few coats of the white glue on the back of the paper as well to ensure it stayed on.

I waited for the glue to dry between each coat.

These stones are so much fun and can be made for any occasion.

We have had some great conversations come out of these little stones.

Here are some of the things I came up with for the stones:

{I left a few of the circles blank so you could write in your own conversation starters.}

I would love to know if you tried these. Did you get some good conversations going? Did you make your own or did you use mine?

    I love this idea, you said you did them for Christmas party what did you write on those?

    • lindsayeidahl January 22, 2015 at 10:13 AM #

      Unfortunately, I was not blogging at that time so there isn’t a post for the Christmas ones.

    What a warm idea to get conversations started.

      Thanks Darlean!

    Just saw this and thot it was a great idea. I am going to make them to give to each couple at a upcoming Valentine dinner party. (last year we had 30 couples). Some were newlywed and some were married 50+ years including one couple married 71 years. Looks like fun.

    • lindsayeidahl January 26, 2015 at 11:58 AM #

      Great idea!

  7. Lisa Capuano January 25, 2015 at 8:45 PM #

    Hi lindsay!!!

    I downloaded your printed circles however could not figure how to use the blank ones. How did you form the circles with the text in side. I have everything ready to go and want to make this as a part of a wedding gift to a friend on Friday. Any help you could give me would be great – tnx again!!! lisa

    • lindsayeidahl January 26, 2015 at 11:58 AM #

      I just thought people could write them in. Handwritten notes and gifts have gone to the waste side so I thought it would be a nice touch!

  8. Sylvia January 25, 2015 at 11:55 PM #

    Hi Lindsay,
    I just discovered your blog on hometalk. I absolutely love this idea. I can think of so
    many applications. Wouldn’t these be great for an anniversary gift for a sweet couple?
    Thank you so much for sharing your creativity.
    I’ll be back 😉

    Thank you so very much for this great idea! I stumbled across your post on Hometalk at the perfect time….I was racking my brain, trying to find a cute little activity for my husband and I to do for Valentine’s Day, and I instantly fell in love with this idea! It was so easy to make (although I used clear sticker paper instead of hand-gluing all the circles). We had a lot of fun! Thanks again for sharing this idea!

    • lindsayeidahl February 20, 2015 at 12:34 PM #

      Thank you so much for sharing Christine! We had a lot of fun with them and I am so happy you did too! Love the clear sticker idea!

    Hi Lindsay,

    Do you mind sharing a blank Word file? I would love to use this to create an icebreaker game for my events. Thanks. Swan jeiswaneventz@gmail.com

    • Lindsay August 9, 2015 at 8:51 PM #

      I left some of the circles blank so you could fill them in with whatever you like! Thanks for stopping by!

  20. Pat DeVoe October 25, 2015 at 11:08 AM #

    Love your idea! I am a caregiver , so will use your idea just for memory conversations. We’ve used strips of paper to read, they don’t really last, but theses will. Thanks so much.

    • Lindsay October 26, 2015 at 4:41 PM #

      That is a great idea!

  21. Keelie Reason February 11, 2016 at 6:02 PM #

    These are so soo soooo cute!

  22. Angie February 13, 2016 at 11:34 PM #

    Thank you SO MUCH! When my husband and I were first married we dined out and some places had sugar packets with questions on them. I loved them and have wished for them since. I can’t believe I didn’t think of this!! These have all kinds of possibilities, even with our children, maybe switch up the questions…again Thank you!

    • Lindsay February 15, 2016 at 1:12 PM #

      Your welcome Angie! They are really easy to make and yes can be customized for so many uses!

  23. Susan April 10, 2016 at 6:34 AM #
