First of all, to all of my readers and followers, I am sorry for my last post, but I had big news and needed a way to get the word out there. If you are interested, you can still let me know, but I won't be doing any more posts of that sort on here.
Anyway, back to Christmas ideas because I am sure that is what you are all looking for...
Here are a few more Christmas games that could be used for a classroom or family party:
* Christmas gift wrapping race. See who can wrap the box the quickest.
* Pin the nose on Rudolph.
* Present Scramble - This game requires a bit of prep but is well worth the effort. Put a small prize (such as a $10 bill) in a small box, tape it well, and gift wrap it. Put the box in a bigger box, wrap that box and put it in another, and so on, wrapping it as many times as you have the boxes and the patience for.
With everyone sitting in a circle, the youngest chooses a number from 1 through 6 and rolls a die, then passes the die to the next player. The first person to roll the chosen number puts on two oven mitts and tears into the present. The other players continue rolling the die. The next player who rolls the chosen number grabs the mitts and takes over the unwrapping. The person who unwraps the actual box with the prize gets to keep it.
* Have a "snowball" race. Create 2 teams and have them each form a line. Have a pile of "snow (cotton balls) dumped and scattered where the kids are in line. One at a time, the kids are to use the "shovel" (spoon) and carry the "snow" from one end of the room to the other, where they then dump the "snow" into a bowl. The kids can only use the spoon to carry the "snow" and can not use the other hand to scoop it up either. They can use a shoe or something along those lines, but not their hands! First one to shovel all their snow wins!
My (10 year old daughter) and her cousin are hosting a Christmas party tomorrow with some friends from school. More ideas from this are to come...
