Let all the players sit in the circle. One player has the candy in his hands and goes to each person and pretends to give them a candy, while only one person secretly gets the candy. The rest of the players have to try to guess who really got the candy.
- Find a pair of big size pants (red ones if you can find it).
Form teams of two and tell them to wear the pants: one player puts his right leg in the left side of pants and the other puts his left leg in the right side of pants. Now tell the teams to race across the room.
Christmas Tree Cups Game

Build a snowman
This is a hilarious Christmas Holiday Game for families and for larger groups such as schools. Find the details of the game at Party Wishes.
Cut the bottle in half, attach the rope and tie it to the player’s waist. Fill the cup (or the box) with ping pong balls. Turn some fun music on and let the contestants dance, shake, jump the ornaments (or balls) out of the container. First one to have the container empty – wins the game.
Stuff Reindeer Antlers
Cut the ends of pantyhose and then cut the hole on the ‘belly’. Put in on the player’s head and try to stuff it with the balloons until it’s full and standing up. Whichever team does this first – wins the game!
Blindfold Christmas Drawing
Blindfold the players and have them hold the paper plate on their heads. Have one person explain instructions while everyone else tries to draw a Christmas story on the plate:
- Draw a line as the floor
- Draw a Christmas tree and add a some ornaments
- Draw a star on top of your tree
- Add 3 presents next to the tree. Draw bows on top
- Draw a Santa next to the tree
- Draw 3 elves standing around the Tree.
After everyone finishes drawing, have them take the plates off their head and look at their masterpiece. The laughs you will have! Pick the drawing that is closest to the instructions were given.
Straws and some paper snowflakes.
Prepare a pile of paper snowflakes on the table. The goal of the game is to transport the snowflakes from one side of the table to the other side using only straws
Tie a pillow to the player’s belly with the ribbon and play traditional Limbo game, only this time it’s little more fun to juggle underneath the rope with the pillow/santa belly. For the people that made it through, slightly lower the rope and have everyone go through again. Continually lower the stick until one winner remains!
Ornament on a spoon
Divide into teams, then setup a relay course. You’ll then have the first person put an ornament on their spoon, go around the course, then come back to the next person. However, you CANNOT use your hands when passing off the ornament, as it must be passed from one spoon to the next. If you drop the ornament in the process, that person needs to go around the course again. Once the ornament is successfully passed off, it’s the next person’s turn.
Penguin Waddle Game
Separate your group into teams of four (you can have an unlimited amount of teams). For each team, you’ll then set up cones 15 to 25 feet apart. The first player starts off putting a balloon between their knees and waddling down to the cone, just like a penguin, and back. When the team member returns, the person must pass the balloon to the next team member before they can go. The first team to have all four members complete the relay wins. But if any team member drops the balloon, they have to restart back at the beginning!
Snowball Toss Game

Play Holiday music and tell everybody to dance. After the music is randomly stopped the players need to ‘freeze’. Walk around the players and try to make them laugh so they would move. Whoever moves – looses the game.
Holiday Face Whip

Tie the carrots to the ribbon and then tie them to the player’s waist (on the back). Place the cups on the floor and tell each player to put the carrot in the cup without using hands.
