Children's Christmas Party!
Ho-Ho-Ho and Merry Christmas!
'Tis the season to have a party and play some festive Christmas party games. Here are some tips for a party or ideas for the classroom.
Christmas Party Planning
- With everything on your "to-do" list during the Christmas holidays, planning a class, company or home party will require plenty of time.
- Try to give yourself 4-6 weeks to prepare. This will allow time for on-line orders, invitation responses, Christmas party planning, shopping etc.
- For stress free party planning, order your Christmas Party Supplies with us.
Then add Christmas cheer with the Christmas Party Games & Ideas below!
How To Play: Played similar to Simon Says. The player up is "Santa".Player will say "Santa says hop on one foot". The children will hop on one foot. Player will say "Stop". The children are to keep hopping on one foot until player says "Santa says stop". Repeat for additional activities such as take one baby step forward,step backwards, turn around, sit down. Sometimes Santa will say "Santa says" and sometimes he won't. It's a fun game to play with young children.
Fill the Christmas Stocking
Stocking, spoon and bowl for each team.
How To Play: Divide into teams. Have children line up at one end of the room. At the other end, hang a Christmas stocking for each team. Place a bowl of sweets and a spoon in front of each team. Each child takes a turn taking a sweet from the bowl with the spoon. They then carry the sweet on the spoon to the stocking and drop the sweet in the stocking. Race back to the next person in line,give them the spoon. First team to fill the stocking wins!
How To Play: Have children sit in a large circle and blindfold one child. Another child will be given the sleigh and must say:
Someone's come and taken it away
Guess who Guess who?
The blindfolded child gets three guesses. The child who has the sleigh is next to be blindfolded.
Christmas Memory Game
18 items in box
How To Play: Show the items in the box to the children. Remove one or more items out of the box (without children seeing you). Have the children guess what items are missing. For older children put items on large tray or cookie sheet. Cover. Remove cover for 20-30 seconds and then remove tray from room. On your mark, the children are to write down as many items that they can remember from the tray before you yell, "STOP". Most correct answers wins.
Gift Unwrap Relay
Empty boxes wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper
How To Play: Divide the class into teams. Put a stack of presents at the end of each team's course. The first child in each team runs to the presents, unwraps one, and races back to the next person in line. First team finished unwrapping wins! Note: To make cleaning a little easier, parents may wish to adapt this game to where the child unwraps, throws away the paper, then runs back!
Littlest Angel or Good Elf
How To Play: Challenge the children to do random acts of kindness for others for one day. Tell them that they are not to reveal that they have done these nice things and if someone should ask them, "did you make sisters bed"? they can reply, "Must have been a good elf".
This game helps children realize we don't always have to be recognized when we do something for someone else. If playing with preschoolers you may want to send a note home with them explaining how parents can help.
Pin The Nose On Frosty or Rudolph
Big Picture of Frosty or Rudolph
Red circle or orange carrot shape for each child, with adhesive on back and their name on the front of a blindfold
How To Play: Blindfold the player, spin 'em around and let them try to stick the nose where it's supposed to go. Give a prize for the player that gets the closest.
Silly Christmas Phrases
How To Play: Say each phrase three times as fast as you can. Let kids practice on their own or take volunteers to come up and try their best for all to hear. A sweet surprise for anyone who tries.
