1. The “Poke-a-Tree” game is full of surprises and fun for all ages.
Who doesn’t love a good surprise?! Poke-a-Tree is a fun interactive game that will make the whole family laugh. It’s simple. People gather around and each other poke holes in the tree to find a Christmas gift. You keep whatever you find and everyone continues to poke holes until all prizes are gone!
2. You can play freeze dance or musical chairs, but with holiday flair.
Both freeze dance and musical chairs are classic party games that kids and adults can enjoy. You can make them more festive by selecting songs that reflect the season. Songs such as “Frosty the Snowman”, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” are great for getting family members moving.
3. Close your eyes and pin the red nose of the reindeer.
This festive take on pin the tail on a donkey adds just the right amount of Christmas cheer to the holiday season. This game doesn’t require you to spend a lot of money at the shop. Simply print an image of your red-nosed friend and add a few noses.
You can use tape to hold the eyes of your children if you are playing with them.
4. For a festive, energetic activity, adapt the “shoe pile” game to create the festive “sock pile”.
The “shoe pile” game is popular in schools and professional settings. It requires everyone to place their shoes in the middle of the room and work together to determine who’s shoe is which. You can make this game a “sock pile” game instead. This will allow people to have fun and not wear their shoes to the house.
Everyone should wear their favorite winter socks. You might also have some Christmas socks that people can claim. Then, place them in a pile at the center of your room. After everyone has found their socks, they should all run towards the middle of the room to find them.
5. Make mini gingerbread houses to make it easy for everyone to have their own.
You might be hesitant to share food with visitors who are visiting you as part of your quarantine network. It’s a pandemic! You can make gingerbread houses from cookies or mini houses with graham crackers to make decorating easier. You can bring your supplies or separate them into separate batches for each decorator.
6. Get together and sing Christmas songs karaoke with your family members and friends.
Christmas songs are fun to dance to and listen to. Many times, the lyrics invite you to sing along with them! Christmas Karaoke is a great way to share the holiday spirit with those you love. You can sing solo, or do a few duets. Or even have the entire family join you in singing Christmas carols. You wouldn’t know it, but hours could go by!
7. Take part in a family tradition of Christmas decorating: decorate the tree together.
It is a wonderful way to welcome the holiday season in your home by setting up your Christmas decorations and placing your Christmas tree. It is a great way to connect with loved ones by sharing the time-honored tradition, of trimming the tree and singing festive songs. Every tree is unique, regardless of whether you use tinsel or homemade ornaments, strung popcorn lights, candy canes, or lights.
The Christmas pickle, which is an activity that can be added to the decorating process, is a great way to bring out the detective in everyone. After all, ornaments have been hung, one person secretly places a pickle-shaped ornament under the tree. Everyone searches the branches for the pickle on Christmas morning.
