12 Hilarious Christmas Party Games by Intelligent Domestications
#1 Santa’s Delivery Game
How To Play Santa’s Delivery Game
The winning team will successfully deliver the most packages.
Provide a large quantity of wrapped boxes and gift bags in various sizes with jingle bells inside for fun. No need for ribbon or bows.
Place a card table on both ends of the room. One will be the starting point where the packages will be placed. Select one person to be the hub manager. The hub manager is in charge of keeping count of the number of packages successfully delivered.
One by one, team members aka delivery drivers, will pick up as many packages as they can carry and quickly deliver them to the table at the other end of the room. Once there they will put them all down then pick them back up and deliver them back to the first table where the next member of their delivery team will then go.
Any packages dropped on the floor must remain on the floor and cannot be retrieved except by the hub manager who will return them to the starting table.
As the competition continues, the later players will need to carry more and more packages. The team to deliver the most packages successfully wins.
#2 Do You Hear What I Hear
Do You Hear What I Hear from Your Homebased Mom requires normal Christmas items you will already have and ‘sounds’ like so much fun!
#3 Christmas Carol Opposites Game
Christmas Carol Opposites Game is a free printable from Crafting Chicks. You may want to pair folks up in teams of two and encourage a little friendly competition with this one.
#4 Holiday Family Feud
Holiday Family Feud from Journey with Johnsons is complete with printable answers. This popular game will be lots of laughs at your party!
#5 The Crepe Paper Christmas Game
You will be wrapping a
victim, party guest in crepe paper to resemble either a Christmas tree, a snowman or a Reindeer.
All supplies for this game are available at the Dollar store
- White, Green or Brown crepe paper
- 2 Hats for the snowmen
- 2 sets of reindeer ears
- Cheap stick on bows for the tree
- 2 Christmas head bands for tree topper
One person on each team will be the subject being decorated with the crepe paper. Team members will wrap the subject around and around with the crepe paper until well wrapped. Once the wrapping is complete, top with the hat for the snowman or reindeer ears for the reindeer or the bows for the tree. The first team to finish wins.
#6 Jingle Bell Toss
Jingle Bell Toss takes only a few minutes to create using simple supplies. Grab the easy tutorial from Playground Parkbench.

#8 Kids Christmas Charades Game
Katrina’s Paperie has this simple DIY Kid’s Christmas Charades Game which I’m sure your children will take out to play year round, especially on rainy days.
The Reindeer Antler Game is almost too much fun if there was such a thing as too much fun! This is a team game from Intelligent Domestications for those with a competitive spirit! You’ll want to repeat this game year after year for rivalry revenge!
#10 The Stocking Stuffer Game
You will need two Christmas Stockings, a bowl full of stocking stuffer goodies such as candy or Dollar Store trinkets and two spoons.
Hang the stockings. Place a large bowl full of the stocking stuffers onto a table near the stockings. Each player gets a spoon which they will use to scoop up the stocking stuffers and fill their Stocking. The first player to fill a stocking wins.
#11 Candy Cane Game
There are so many different ways to use Candy Canes in Christmas games. I found this one on You Tube which looks like a lot of fun for families.
The object here is to get as many candy canes onto the one in your mouth as you can hold. You could do this as a relay by picking up one and carrying it to a designated location or filling a Christmas stocking with them. Use your imagination.
Begin this Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt Game from Intelligent Domestications about a week before your party. Set up a Facebook page for everyone to submit pictures of each item as they find them and watch the competition begin! You may want to give a nice prize to your winner for this one!
