"Christmas is coming the goose is getting fat!" Are you getting ready for the Christmas festivities? What better way to celebrate than to throw a Christmas party! It's that special time of year when families gather together to celebrate the birth of Christ through festive activities. Here’s a couple of Christmas party games to get your children involved in decorating and enjoying the festive spirit.
A great game for children at Christmas time is to trim the Christmas tree when blindfolded. Put a small tree at one end of the room, ready to be decorate. Have all the ornaments on a table nearby, ready to be put on the tree.
Blindfold the children one at a time, then lead them to the table to take their pick. The first thing the child touches must be taken, and after turning the child around three times turn them towards the tree.
When they reach the tree, they must hang the ornament, tinsel etc. After a while turn the tree around otherwise it will only get decorated on one side. Take as many turns as they wish.
Here's a great Christmas party game you can play with others or on your own!
Suspend a large Christmas wreath in a doorway at a convenient height from the floor. Give each person 3 sheets of white paper to crumple into snowballs.
The players stand about eight feet from the wreath, and take it in turns, one at a time. Each is given three "snowballs," and the player who succeeds in throwing all three, one at a time, through the wreath, is given a prize.
To make it more interesting, form 2 teams and number each of the 3 snowballs 5, 10, 20. If the ball numbered 5 goes through, it scores 5 for that team. If it doesn't go through it's a loss of 5 points etc. The team scoring the most points is the winner.
