Whether you are having a Christmas party with family and friends or an office party with co-workers, here’s a list of games that will add some fun to your celebration.
What you will need:
- Medium box or box lid
- Styrofoam balls (about 6) or big marshmallows
I made this snowman 9 years ago when my oldest was in kindergarten. It has withstood the test of time and the younger kids love this game.
Directions: Paint a snowman face on the back of your box. Cut out a hole for his mouth. Have the kids make a single file line behind a piece of tape about 5 feet from the snowman. The first child takes 3 turns throwing a “snowball” at the snowman’s mouth trying to feed him. That child will return to the end of the line when finished and the next child will go. Continue until everyone has had a turn. There are no real winners and losers in this game. To add some fun, when the kids are going back to the end of the line have them skip, twirl, crab-crawl or dance.
Sort By Color
This toddler-appropriate sorting game is one part festive fun, one part educational experience. Build a cardboard tree with circular colored cutouts, and then watch as your little ones match the balls — er, ornaments — to the right spaces.
