Free Christmas Party Game Ideas That Create Joy And Laughter
Discovering new Christmas party games can be a very fun way to spruce life into old-fashioned, traditional parties. You can instantly skyrocket your status as a party planner with some of these fun Christmas party game ideas.
One fun idea is to make all of the guests open their presents with oven mitts. This is sure to garner a lot of laughs as people struggle to unravel the tape and wrapping paper.
You can also give everybody a small bag of 10 chocolates when they enter the party. Make a rule that if someone catches them saying certain words such as “Santa”, “Presents”, “Christmas”, etc, they need to surrender a piece of their chocolate to that person. The person with the most chocolate at the end is the winner.
Have an “ugly sweater” theme. The person with the ugliest sweater wins a prize. This can be a good Christmas party game for parties in which everybody doesn’t know each other.
Have a wrapping contest. Blindfold people at the party, set a timer, and see how far people can get with wrapping a gift or box when they can’t see. Cut the wrapping paper to fit the box ahead of time, as playing with scissors blindfolded can be harmful. See who gets the furthest and award them a prize.
Have a gift-wrapping or unwrapping relay. Divide the partygoers into two teams. Make a station with gift-wrap, scissors, and tape. The first person has to run to the station and wrap the gift.
When they are done, they have to run back, and the next person in line repeats. For younger children, this can be an unwrapping party. Either way, this is an enjoyable Christmas party game.
Play a “Guess What’s In The Stocking” Christmas party game. Put awkward shaped objects inside stockings, and make people guess what they are. Some ideas can be pine cones, candy canes, or star shaped items.
Christmas Bingo can be a fun time. Make an empty Bingo sheet, and have people fill in the boxes with words that they associate with Christmas, such as “ornament”, “garland”, or “Christmas tree”. Give out Hershey kisses to use as markers, and see who wins this amusing Christmas party game.
Take two decks of cards. Keep one for yourself, and shuffle out the other deck to the partygoers. Keep a few presents on a table near everybody. A good rule of thumb is to have half as many presents as partygoers for this one.
After everybody gets their cards, take your deck, and read the card suit and numbers out loud. When people have that card, they get to take a present from the middle.
After the presents run out, people get to take the presents from each other. This can be a very enjoyable Christmas party game (especially for the people that get to keep the presents!).
