Christmas Party Games for Kids of All Ages
                    By: Gail Leino



Everyone loves a Christmas Party, and Christmas Party Games are great ice breakers as well as fantastic, fun entertainment! The following Christmas Party Games are great for kids Christmas Parties, but could probably be adapted to family settings as well.


Round Robin Christmas Games!

A simple variation on the more traditional Round Robin game is to simply add a Christmas Flair! Arrange guests in a circle. Have some prearranged, Christmas themed starters such as ""Santa likes ""Sam"" (substitute one of your guests names) because"" and instruct each person to add a phrase afterwards. Have an adult who is a quick writer ready to take down the phrases, so they can be read as a story when each guest has a turn, and be sure each person knows to add a word such as 'and', 'when', 'because' etc. and be ready to help by adding these words yourself, if your guests are very young. You will be surprised at how funny these stories become as each guest adds his or her contribution to this Christmas version of the traditional Round Robin!

Christmas Whispers Game

This game is sure to leave everyone laughing! Have phrase cards made ahead of time. Increase the complexity of the phrases the older the guests are. Obviously a younger guest list will require simple sentences.

Just make sure your sentences are Christmas themed and somewhat unusual. (One example sentence would be: ""Santa Clause ate some cookies and milk, and he shared them with Comet, Cupid, and Vixen, but forgot to give any to the other reindeer, so Mrs. Clause made some especially for them!"") Begin by whispering this Christmas phrase to the first person in the line. Have each person whisper the sentence to the next person in line, and see how much everyone laughs when the last person says the phrase and then you read what the phrase was initially.

Christmas Party Games do not have to be complex to be fun, in fact, the more simple the game, the better most guests seem to like them, and the less work they are for you!
