Holiday charades

Holiday charades is a classic Christmas game that makes for a fun and interesting way to enjoy the holidays with family. To play, divide the players into two teams, and have the first player select a holiday-themed prompt to act out. The teams will take turns trying to guess what the player is acting out, and the team that gets the most points wins! Holiday Charades can be easily played over Zoom with family too, making it a great game to play for a socially distanced Christmas.

Switch, steal, unwrap

For this Christmas game, have each person bring a fun, small Christmas gift. If playing with the whole family, make sure the presents are kid-appropriate by using things like chocolate bars. Put all the gifts in a pile in the center of the room and have everyone select a gift at random. Each player rolls a dice to see if they get to switch, steal, or unwrap their gift!

Christmas Mayhem

To play Christmas Mayhem, print out these printable prompts and divide them up into red and green cards. Have a player select one of each card, then choose another player to be their “helper” (tip: have kids be the players, while adults get to act as their helpers). 

The players will then act out the scene on their prompt, and at the end, the whole family gets to vote on which scene was their favorite.
