Christmas Carol Pictionary

You start by writing down a list of Christmas Carols on flash cards. Then divide players into separate teams. One person takes a card from the pile of cards and gets one minute to illustrate the Christmas Carol. The rest of the team has to guess what the carol is. If they do, they will get a point! Be sure that the team’s artist is rotated. All teams keel going until they reach 20 points!

Siamese Gift Wrap Game

The idea behind this game is to throw down the gauntlet to your guests and see who can wrap presents the fastest! However, players must work together and can only use one hand to wrap the gift!

Who has the ornament?

Get your guests to sit in a circle and place one person in the middle. Each guest sits with their hands behind their backs. The people in the circle must pass the ornament around the circle without the person in the middle noticing! If some gets caught, then it’s their turn to sit in the middle.

The Tinsel Game

Time to get creative! Divide the teams into 2 teams, then give the two teams a word or the name of an object to the person with the tinsel. The person then must create a picture or word using the tinsel! First team to guess right is the winner.
