5 Easy and Fun Christmas Party Games for Kids

Christmas is the time for food, fun, and parties to enhance the festive atmosphere and fill it with joy. This season gives us the opportunity to catch up with family and friends in a relaxed atmosphere. Parties can sometimes get monotonous, especially if there are no games to entertain kids. Fret not, as they can be made exciting by organising fun Christmas games for kids who have gathered together.

Best Christmas Games for Children

The following Christmas games for kids are sure to infuse life in the party and let kids have the time of their lives. So here goes:

1. Snowman Slam

What You Need

  • White paper cups
  • Black chart paper
  • Yellow or red chart paper
  • Rolled up socks or soft balls

How to Play

  • Create a snowman’s face on each of the white paper cups using the coloured chart paper.
  • Stack these cups, one to top of the other, in a tower shape.
  • Now, ask the kids to take turns at throwing the socks/balls at the snowman cups. The kid who knocks down the most cups in a given time period wins the game.

2. Jingle Bell Toss

This is a classic Christmas party game idea for kids and adults. It does not take too much time to set up and is super fun to play.

What You Need

  • 24 small-sized red cups
  • Tiny jingle bells
  • 2 cardboard sheets or foam boards
  • Glue

How to Play

  • Stick the red cups (not too close to each other) on the cardboard sheets or foam boards using glue.
  • Place the sheet at a distance that’s neither too close nor too far away.
  • Handover the tiny jingle bells to the kids and ask them to toss the bells into the cups. Whoever tosses the maximum bells into the cups wins the game.
  • You can divide the members into two teams for some healthy competition.

3. Find Santa’s Reindeer

How can a party be complete without a reindeer game? This is one of the best holiday party games for kids and is sure to get everyone into the Christmas spirit.

What You Need

  • Reindeer figurines/ Reindeer images
  • Paper
  • Pens
  • Places/ multiple rooms to hide the reindeer
  • Prizes

How to Play

  • Hide the reindeer across your home before the guests arrive.
  • When its time to play the game, begin by telling the kids that Santa’s reindeer had a huge party the previous night and now, Santa can’t find any of them.
  • Tell them that Santa needs their help in finding his reindeer, so he can deliver Christmas gifts to everyone.
  • Show them images of the missing reindeer, so they know what they are looking for.
  • Hand out a sheet that shows the number of reindeer your guests need to find with blank spaces to write their location.
  • You can set a time limit to spice up things or even divide everyone into two or three teams.

4. Snow Shovel Race

This easy Christmas game for kids can easily be set up with simple household items, and it’s sure to become a favourite at every party.

What You Need

  • Cotton balls

  • Scatter the cotton balls on a table, along with the plastic spoon and soup bowl.
  • Ask the kids to queue up and take turns at scooping the cotton balls using the plastic spoon, and placing them in the bowl.
  • Place the bowl at some distance from the cotton balls. It is difficult to control the soft and fluffy cotton balls using the spoon, so watch out for some fun!
  • Count how many cotton balls each kid could scoop within 1-2 minutes. The kid who scooped the most cotton balls wins.

5. Pin the Red Nose on Rudolph

This game is a Christmassy take on the popular “Tail the Donkey”. It is one of the most sought-after Christmas themed games for kids.

  • Pin each nose where it was placed. The one who pins it closest to the right position is declared the winner.
Christmas party games are meant to spread cheer and joy. Choose games that are simple to play and ensure they do not become too competitive. If you have toddlers around, restrict the use of scissors and other pointed objects. Allow them to express their creativity and give them lots of prizes to boost their morale.

Most of all we would like to wish you are a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Early Days Foods Team
