Holiday Party Games the Whole Family Will Love

by Rebecca Eanes


9. Set up a snowball toss with a rectangular cardboard box and 3 large marshmallows wrapped in plastic wrap. Cover the box in construction paper and draw a snowman face with a large open mouth on the front of the box, then cut out the mouth. Each player gets 3 tries to get a snowball (wrapped marshmallows) into the snowman’s mouth.


10.  Get a good laugh with a Santa Limbo game. Each player puts a pillow under the shirt to give them a Santa belly. Place a limbo stick at starting height and gradually lower the stick until only one player remains.


11. Print out this list and play Christmas Charades. Separate everyone into teams. The game is played like regular charades – just acting out these Christmas themes! Each correct guess wins a point for the team. The first team to get to 20 points wins the game!
