Christmas Party Games for children
Make a snowman. Use a roll of toilet paper to wrap up an adult as quickly as possible so nothing is showing. Stick on a hat, scarf and gloves to finish off the look.
Present wrap. Choose some unusally shaped objects that children have to wrap up- either as quick as possible or do the best job with what they have.
Christmas Stocking Filler. Everyone grab a Christmas Stocking. Give them 60 seconds to run around and fill it with items of your choosing in scavenger hunt style!! Ideas such as; Red object (s)/ something sparkly/ something round/ something spiky
Present stacking. Wrap up different objects of various shapes and sizes and see who can build the biggest tower!
Christmas Mittens. Put on a pair of mittens and try to unwrap some Christmas sweets!
Traditional Party Games with a Christmas Twist
Ring Toss. Make it festive by using Reindeer Horns to catch the inflatable rings that are thrown!
Treasure hunt/ Scavenger Hunt. Hide festive objects around the house and garden that children have to find (chocolate coins/ candy canes/ jingle bells)
Christmas Memory Game. A game that’s great for all ages. Show the children a number of festive objects. Hide them in a stocking and take one out. The children must guess which is missing. Make it easier for younger children by reducing the number of objects.

Charades. The family classic
Pictionary. Tone it down with simple objects for younger children
Messy eating. Eat something messy (cream cake/ pasta/ jam donut) as quickly as possible with your hands tied behind your back. Make it festive with a Christmas hat or by using Christmassy food.
