Parents are always looking for activities for Christmas Day, particularly if they have really young children.
With a little investigation, I discovered there are tons of Christmas themed games we can do on the big day. Here are 9 game ideas for the holiday.
Play Christmas trivia with family researching questions and facts and offer a prize for the family member who gets the most points. Some great trivia questions I found were Where country did the Christas tree come from? Answer: Germany. Also, what is the most popular Christmas song ever? You might think it's Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas," but it's not. Answer; Bing Crosby's "White Christmas."
A Christmas Scavenger hunt can be fun if you have young children.
Personalize the game of Guess Who and give it a holiday twist by making cards that relate to various family members or using Polaroid photos as cards for an easy, vintage twist.
Turn "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" into a game by holding a holiday dance-off. Play dance freeze. Turn on the music and get groovin', then shut it off without warning and shout, "freeze!" Whoever stops moving last is out.
Save a stack of uniform-sized containers, like tissue boxes or shipping packages, then paint them like a snowman and add a paper hat and nose, painted features and some other accessories. Grab a ball and you're ready to bowl!
Print out a handful of free Christmas bingo boards, filled with candy canes, snowflakes, gingerbread men and other symbols of the season.
Gameify your gingerbread house project by turning it into a competition. Challenge each construction team to build a replica of their own home.
If you already have candy canes lying around for decorating or eating, then you're already equipped to play this game.
With red solo cups and white pom-poms see how many "Santa hats" you can stack on top of one another before your tower comes toppling down.
