Entertain your guests with fun Christmas party games.
Below is a list of fun games for both kids and adults. Use a variety of action games (which are great for kids) and board/writing games.
Everyone should be seated in a circle. Take any gift (which will also be the prize for this party, and wrap it in multiple layers of wrapping paper. Each time the gift is passed to someone, that person will take off one layer of paper. Whichever guest removes the last layer and reveals the gift will get to keep it.
Put a few small trinkets in a Christmas stocking, and try to lay them
out as flat as possible. Cover the opening of the stocking with
something like tissue paper, so that no one can see inside. Pass
the stocking around to everyone and see if they can guess what's in the
stocking by feeling it. They should write their answers
down. Whoever guesses the most items can keep the stocking and
the little gifts inside.
Action Christmas party games are perfect for kids. This is a
great holiday action game, which is a variation of the classic "pin the
tail on the donkey"
game. You can buy this game at any party store. Complete
instructions will be included, but it's pretty much self
explanatory. The object of the game is try to properly place
Rudolph's nose on his face while blindfolded.
This is a great game for kids. Buy 8 plush reindeer and hide them
around the room. See who can find the most. As an added
bonus, use a Rudolph toy as well, and give a bonus prize to whoever
This one is simple, but you will be surprised at how off some of the
answers will be! See who can guess how many gifts are under your
tree. If no one guesses the exact number, use the guess that's
closest to that number, and give that person a prize.
Here's another one of the classic Christmas party games that never gets old. See who knows all the words to some of the classic holiday tunes. Turn this into a creative game by encouraging the guests to get into groups and make a mini concert for everyone. Anyone who is not participating in the game can judge.
For this game, have a bunch of small, inexpensive party favors on hand,
like chocolates or candy canes. Ask your guests a list of
questions to see if they're ready for the holidays. Here are some
Each time anyone answers "yes" to any of your questions, they get a
favor. To make it more interesting, give some questions more "points"
than others. For example, putting up a tree can be worth 5
favors, and shopping for dinner can be worth 2.
Let the guests act out popular Christmas movie scenes, and see how well
they do by how quickly everyone can guess the movie.
This is one of the best Christmas party games out there. People will play in pairs for this game.
One person from each team will be using only their left hand, and the other person will use only the right hand (or to make it more interesting, let each person use their left hand if they are right handed, and the right hand if they are left handed).
The pair has to wrap a gift together, but using only the free hand. The other hand has to stay put behind their backs. They have to do everything from cutting the wrapping paper to taping it together.
