Laying on the floor, underneath a big pine tree with twinkling lights above your head, staring at the lights until they blur. The tantalizing smell of cinnamon or peppermint baking in the oven-tickling your nostrils. The anticipation of wrapped presents with big sparkling bows hiding under the tree.

Christmas Charades Game:
To play this Christmas charades game, you will just need to print this page and then cut out each of the individual squares. Put them all in a hat or a bowl and take turns drawing one out and acting it out what’s on the card with no sounds. The family or group can all guess what the person is acting. The person who guesses correctly gets to be the next one to act. This is one of the most fun family Christmas games because all ages can play!
Christmas Bingo Game:
A great kid’s Christmas party game idea, this free printable Christmas Bingo game is both simple to print and fun to play! This set includes 8 printable Christmas Bingo cards and then the little drawing cards you’ll need to play with. Just grab something to use as markers and some fun prizes if you want and you’re all set! One person draws a card out of the pile and shows it to all of the players. Players mark that on their board. Once someone has 5 in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally they win!

Christmas I Spy Game:
This one is perfect for the younger crowd at a holiday party-think preschoolers and young kids. Print out these Christmas I Spy games, one for each child. Let the kiddos search for things on the Christmas tree and circle them when they find them. (They are pretty easy to find, so really, this one is good for really little ones.)
Christmas Memory Game:
Another holiday party game that is great for little kids is Christmas Memory. Just print two pages of the cards, then cut them out. Place all of the Christmas Memory cards face down and take turns turning two over. If you find matching ones you keep them and take another turn. At the end, whoever has found the most matches wins!
Christmas Don’t Eat Pete Game:
This is a great holiday party game for a school party! It’s surprising how much kids enjoy this one. Cover each character with the candy (or whatever food you brought to use). Choose one person to be “It”, and send them out of the room. The rest of the group chooses which character to be “Pete.” The “It” person comes back and starts to eat the candy off the board in whatever order they want. When they reach to grab the “Pete” all the other players yell “DON’T EAT PETE” and that “It” person isn’t it anymore. Choose and new “It” and repeat until all the children have had a turn to be “It.”
Christmas Pictionary Game:
Print this Christmas Pictionary game. Cut the slips out and drop them in a bucket. Take turns drawing the cards out and sketching the pictures while the others guess! This is another one that’s a fun game for family Christmas parties.
Letter to Santa Template:
And finally, here’s a fun Letter to Santa template that the kids can use to write to the big guy. It’s very simple but fun! They can just write their letter on this cute template and send it off!
How FUN is all of that!?
So who needs this more? Mom who wants to slow down and enjoy the season or the kids who want to plow on to Christmas day!? Or how about Grandma who wants to have the kids over for a fun family Christmas party? How about baking some Christmas cookies and enjoying an afternoon or evening together playing and eating and listening to Christmas carols?
And have FUN playing these holiday party games!
