Unwrap Relay

This is considered to be one of the most popular Christmas family games because it is quite easy to set up, challenging, and enjoyable for all individuals involved – regardless of age.

You will need to have at least two teams and a gift for each team. The gift that you provide to each team should be wrapped within a box that contains many smaller boxes, with the inside box containing the gift. In other words, wrap the small gift, place it in a box, place that box inside of another box, and so on and so forth. Each box needs to be wrapped with wrapping paper. At the beginning of the game, each team is provided with their box and a pair of mittens. Each individual should attempt to unwrap the gift as quickly as possible – without taking off the mittens. The team that successfully reaches the gift and unwraps it first, wins the game. You may then provide that team with ribbons, party favors, or items that are similar in nature.

Holiday Musical Chairs

When it comes to Christmas party games, no holiday party is complete without the addition of the game, holiday musical chairs. In this game, you simply set out a preset number of chairs and have everyone sit in them. You then play holiday music that is fun and upbeat. When the music stops, everyone sits and you remove a chair. Individuals that are left standing are eliminated from the game. The last person that remains wins the game. You should ensure that you have a gift to provide to the winner. Examples include a holiday music CD, a stocking filled with Christmas candy, and other items that are Christmas related.

Pin the Star on the Christmas Tree

For Christmas family games, the one known as, “Pin the Star on the Christmas Tree” is exceptionally popular. This is similar to the game known as, “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” that is often played at other types of celebrations. You may make your own Christmas tree from construction paper, or simply buy a Christmas tree banner. Then, you should cut out a star that may be used for the game. You will also need a blind fold. Once you are ready to start the game, you should line up each person that chooses to play. During each individual’s turn, place the blind fold on their face, ensuring that it completely covers their eyes. Then, slowly turn them three times. They will then take the star, and attempt to place it on the top of the designated picture of a Christmas tree. The person that comes the closest to getting the star in this location wins the game.
