10 Fun Family Christmas Games

1. Christmas Charades

This classic game is always a hit, no matter what age you are! To make it more festive, try acting out Christmas carols or popular holiday movies.

2. Santa's Helper Scavenger Hunt

Get everyone up and moving with a holiday-themed scavenger hunt! Hide items around the house or yard and see who can find them all the quickest.

3. Decorate the Christmas Tree

See who can come up with the best decorated Christmas tree! You can use real or artificial trees, as well as any other materials you have around the house.

4. Gingerbread House Contest

Shop for some gingerbread house decorating kits and see who can create the most festive one. Make a contest out of it and award fun prizes.

5. What's in my stocking?

Fill a stocking with small objects, then have each player take turns feeling into the stocking and guessing what each item is without looking.

6. Christmas Sing Alongs

Christmas is all about sing-alongs! Whether you're belting out holiday classics or karaoke favorites, this is a great way to get everyone in on the fun.

7. Elf on the Shelf Relay Race

Make a relay race where teams have to dress up an elf in as many items of clothing as possible before passing it off to the next team member.

8. Pass the Present

A twist on the classic game of hot potato, players must pass a wrapped present along with the music. Whoever holds the present when the music stops wins it!

9. Santa's Workshop

Give everyone construction paper, scissors, glue, and anything else they may need to create their own version of Santa's workshop.

10. Secret Santa

Before the party, each person draws a name out and buys them a small gift anonymously. After everyone has chosen a gift, try to guess who brought each one.


No matter what age you are, playing games is always more fun when done as part of a group - especially during the holidays when family gatherings are in full swing!
