10 Christmas Game Ideas

1. Fill the Christmas stocking. Divide into teams and have the participants race to fill their team's hanging stocking with a spoonful of wrapped candy.

2. Frosty's Corn-hole. Use a catapult to try and toss poms into the holes in frosty!

3. Photo booth. Not technically a game, but still a fun activity! Provide silly props and backdrops for guests to use to get silly in front of a photographer (keep in mind it doesn't have to be a professional).

4. Snowman wrapping contest. Wrap a person as a snowman in toilet paper and decorate. First or best one wins.

5. Christmas Would You Rather? Play a fun game of would you rather - Christmas Style! Click here for the free printable!

6. Pin the red nose on Rudolph. The Christmas version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey.

7. Snowman bowling. To learn how to make this DIY bowling game head on over to Craftaholics Anonymous!

8. Snowball Throwing Contest. See who can throw their snowball the furthest. This can be played outdoors with real snow or indoors with tissue paper snow balls. Careful, this can cause a full blown snowball fight!

9. Secret Snowman. Players try to stick a paper snowman (you can make it out of card stock with a loop of painter's tape to attach it) on a person's back without her noticing. When that person realizes the snowman is on her, she has to stick it on someone else's back. Don't worry about the snowman staying on just one back for hours -- giggling kids are sure to give the person a clue before too long. Try to have the snowman visit everyone's back by the end of the day.

10. Christmas Carol Charades. Get dramatic! You can’t beat this crowd pleaser, as it is sure to bring the laughs.  Have everyone write names of Christmas Carols on index cards or small sheets of paper (only write 1 carol on each strip of paper). You can also write some carols ahead of time that aren’t typical ones that your group probably won’t think of. Don’t worry if you have repeats if you pick a repeat when it’s your turn, just toss it out.  Depending on the size of the group, have at least 40 carols written down...then take turns trying to act them out!
