It’s Christmas time, the most magical time of the year, which brings us all closer to our loved ones! We’ve prepared a list of top 10 Christmas Party games, which you should try out when you’re gathering with your friends and family this holiday.
Do You Hear What I Hear?
Get 7 present boxes (these are cute), fill them with different quantities of jingle bells (ranging from 5-35), and have the participants lift, rattle and listen to the boxes to help them arrange the boxes in order from least to greatest number of bells.
Deck the Balls
Get a bowl full of ornaments, a 3 foot string (hung taut between 2 objects) and a cardboard tube. The player must suck an ornament to the end of the tube and hang it on the string. If the player can get 5 balls hung within a minute, he/she wins!
Similar to any other game of charades, but you’re using Christmas characters. The team that guesses the secret word from your teammates’ acting wins.
Fill 13 glasses of water at different heights so when you tap them with a spoon, they play Jingle Bells. Mix up the glasses and have a player try to arrange the glasses in the right order so when tapped they play Jingle Bells.
For this game you will need 2 chopsticks, 2 large candy canes, and 6 smaller candy canes. At the end of the chopstick attach the large candy cane with a string. Have 2players play against each other by holding the chopstick in their mouth and try to pick up 3 candy canes, using the large candy cane as a fish hook. The first player to accomplish that task, wins!
Name That Carol
Try to guess the name of the Christmas carol, given only a few lyrics from the song.
This holiday game is just perfect for the kids. Hang a red pom-pom at the end of a string. Hand one out to each child participating to hang from their mouths. When you say ‘go’ each player then tries to pull up the string to until they get to the red pom-pom. The player who does that the fastest wins.
Hand a paper snowflake (grab these or make your own) to each player to place on top of their heads. When you say ‘go’ the players have to walk from one end of the room to the next without their snowflake falling off their heads and without using their hands. This holiday game is a for sure hit but also a real challenge for the participants! Awesome.
Ornament On A Spoon
Rather than balance an egg on a spoon, like the traditional game, this Christmas-themed edition has you balance an ornament.
Pin The Nose On Rudolph
Played like Pin the Tail on the Donkey; you’ll blindfold someone, spin them in circles, then have them Pin the Nose on Rudolph.
