You’ll have a blast with this fun reindeer antler ring toss game!
Wear the cool inflatable antlers and try to catch the rings your team mates throw.
2. Massive Christmas Challenge
What would a Christmas party be without a Massive Christmas Challenge!
The game has fun questions like “Name a toy living on the Island of Misfit Toys”, “Give me a phrase with the word ‘cold’ in it”.
This PowerPoint Game with 70 rounds will be a hit at your Christmas party.
It works well for large groups. Use in classroom, office, or at your family Christmas party.
3. Christmas Mafia (the naughty list)
Have you played Mafia before? If yes, then you know how the games goes. If not you can find the instructions at Ice Breaker Ideas. They explain the game well so I won’t even attempt to do that.
What makes it a Christmas Mafia is that you will have
- Mrs. Claus (detective)
- Santa Claus (doctor)
- Elves (Mafia members)
Also in Christmas Mafia you don’t kill anyone… the Elves put the nice ones on the naughty list. Mrs. Claus tries to figure out who put them on the wrong list and Santa can add them back to the nice list.
Christmas party game for large group.
Teens will like this game too!
4. Christmas Bingo
What I really like about this bingo game is that it has 30 unique game boards so you can play it with a large group like a class room full of kids.
5. Christmas Table Game
Twist and Sprout Game is a game of acting, humming and general knowledge.
Keep a box at your dinner table and play a round or two after dinner every day in December.
Or use it as a way to entertain your guests at the Holiday party this year.
6. Christmas Gift Exchange Chaos
Presents! We all love to receive Christmas presents. Well, the white elephant gifts can be not-so-awesome but the fun part is playing.
Whether you have only awesome gifts at your Christmas party or not, you’ll have a fabulous time exchanging them with Christmas exchange chaos.
This set has 48 cards! Put them in a bowl, take turns picking one and doing what it says.

7. Christmas Trivia
Test your Christmas knowledge with Christmas trivia. Play as teams or individually.
You could ask the questions one at a time and give a point to the group that answers first.
An easy game for home or office Holiday party.
8. What’s In the Stocking
Who has not tried to shake the presents or feel the stockings to find out what’s in there.
Now you get to do that with permission!
You’ll need stockings and an item to put in each stocking. This advent calendar gift list will get you started.
Number the stockings and give everyone a list to write down what they think is in each stocking.
This could also be a fun way to do Christmas gift exchange. The one who got most correct can pick a stocking as a Christmas gift. Then the one who got 2nd place gets to pick a gift next and so on.
10. Toss The Gifts Down The Chimney
Perhaps you won’t get to ride in the sleigh with Santa but you can certainly deliver gifts down this chimney.
Make a chimney out of cardboard box.
- big box
- draw bricks or glue on paint sample chips
You could also use the inexpensive cardboard fireplace pictured above. Tape a piece of cardboard behind it or place it against the wall so you can tell whether the gifts went to the “chimney” or not.
How to play:
See who can toss the most gifts in the chimney.
11. Pin The Hat On “Elf”
Younger kids love the “pin it” games. They will have fun pinning the hat on a kid who would loved to be Santa’s helper. (This is an 8.5 x 11 in printable.)
You could also play pin the nose on the snowman or pin the ribbon on the gift.
Digital Product. You’ll also get 4 additional games: 48 gift exchange cards, scattergories, Christmas ABC, and finish my phrase.
12. Christmas Carol Pictionary
The worse you are at drawing the more hilarious this game is.
You’ll have 30 cards with lyrics that you’ll draw. Pick one and draw it. The others try to guess the lyric. If they also know the song title, they will get an extra point.
Get the pictionary from My Computer Is My Canvas.
13. Scavenger Hunt
Give everyone a list of things to find. You could also make this easy and do a candy cane or chocolate Santa scavenger hunt. Easy games are life savers!
You’ll love the fun Christmas scavenger hunt printable. It has images of gifts you cut out and hide. It’s in the freebies with other free Christmas printables.
14. DIY Decorations
Not exactly a game unless you make it a competition.
I’ve got few EASY DIY Christmas decoration ideas that would be perfect for a Christmas party. Well, perhaps the DIY fireplace is not one of them but everyone would love the wood block gifts and easy wreaths.
