Christmas Games

Christmas Games

1.  Have a “Minute To Win It” party Christmas-style -This is such an amazing party with fabulous Christmas games like:

  • See how many marshmallows you can get through the wreath and into the bucket in a minute game.
  • Can you stack the cups with one hand in a minute game.
  • How many ornaments can you balance on a yardstick and paper towel tube without it falling over in a minute game.
  • Can you get the red pompom on a string up on your Vaseline covered nose in a minute game.
  • The Nut stacker game.
  • How many ornaments can we hang on the string without using our hands in a minute game.
  • Can you get the cookie from your forehead into your mouth without using your hands in a minute game.
  • Try to open the present with ski gloves on before doubles are rolled.

Photo Booth Fun with Printable Props

2.  Photo Booth Fun with Printable Props – Every good party needs a photobooth! The best photobooths have props so your guests can cut loose and get silly.

Candy Coated Christmas Party

3.  Candy Coated Christmas Party – After the kids decorated their food items, they played outside in the (barely there) snow. Hot chocolate was waiting to warm them up, with a snowman Peep on the side. This is the time they were able to write their letters to Santa.

Christmas Games For Adults

4. White Elephant Gift Exchange –  Every year I look forward to our annual White Elephant gift exchange party.  Julie, our host, prints out this Gift Exchange Poem to spice things up a bit.

5. Two Truths and a Lie Game – Two Truths and a Lie is a popular ice breaker game.  In the game, a person tell three stories about themselves, two of which are true, and one that is not.  The goal of the player is to determine which story is not true.  You can play this in a Christmas party setting in a group with the theme topic of “their worst Christmas gift”.

6.  What If / Then Game – Everyone gets in a circle and is given two pieces of paper and a pen.  On the first paper each guest writes down any “What If” question.  Collect all of those papers into a bowl.

Next, pass out the “What If” questions and  have each guest write the “Then” answer to that specific question onto their second piece of paper.  Have each guest put their “What If” question into one bowl and the “Then” answer into a second bowl.

Now it’s time to read them Mad Lib style.  Have each guest take 1 paper from the “What If” bowl and 1 paper from the “Then” bowl.  Take turns going around in a circle and reading the two papers back to back:  What If / Then!  It’s hysterical and a great crowd pleasure.

Christmas Games For Adults

7.  Can you guess the Christmas songs from the pictures?  How fun would this reverse Pictionary game be at a Christmas party. Hold up the picture and have the room guess what song it is.  You can even split up in teams and enjoy a little competition.   This isn’t the best picture – so if any of you talented artists recreate this ~ be sure to send it to me!  {snicker}

8.  Christmas Carol Pictionary Game – This isn’t a free download, but I thought it was a darling game made by a fellow blogger that you can play with all ages.

Gift Wrapping Party

9.  Gift Wrapping Party – “Wrapping holiday gifts can be a boring chore, often amounting to hours spent on the floor in a sprawl of presents, cursing from the paper cuts and somehow always running out of tape. (Or is that just me?) Now turn that chore into a party, and you’ve got something much more fun and festive.”
