Elf Trivia Christmas Game

Who doesn’t love the movie, Elf?

The Elf Trivia Game will have your Christmas Party Guests on the edge of their seats scrambling to get the answer out before anyone else.

It will be LOUD, it will be full of energy, and it will be FUN … as long as you don’t invite a bunch of cotton-headed ninny muggins.

Christmas Scattergories

Christmas Scattergories FREE Printable

Have lots of family fun this Christmas with these Christmas scattergories printables, either play with the original game or on their own.

This is fun for the whole family and a wide range of ages can participate. 

Saran Wrap Ball Game

This is a super fun game – take a bunch of small items (our family tosses in a few gift cards worth $5 and $10), and wrap them up in saran wrap.

Start with one item and wrap the saran wrap around it several times. Add something else, and wrap around that a few more times. After adding several more items and wrapping, it will resemble a ball.

To play the game, you need dice, oven mitts, and a Santa hat.

The first person puts on the oven mitts and Santa hat and tries to peel away the saran wrap to get one of the items.

While they are trying to unwrap the saran wrap ball, the next player is rolling the dice until they get doubles. Once they get doubles, the first person has to stop and give the oven mitts and hat to the second player to make attempts at the ball while a third player rolls the dice to get doubles.

This game takes a bit, and is super fun!

Pantyhose Antlers Game

To play this game, you’ll need pantyhose and balloons.

Our family uses red and green balloons. We also play this game in pairs – it goes quicker that way!

To play, each pair of players will start blowing up medium-sized balloons, tying them off, and stuffing them in the legs of the pantyhose.

Once each leg of their pair of pantyhose has 4 balloons each, they put the pantyhose on their head to finish the game!

Whoever puts their finished pantyhose pair on their head first wins.

Rudolph Race

For this game, you’ll need red pom-poms and some vaseline.

Hang a picture of Rudolph across the room, dab some vaseline on his nose, and put a paper plate smeared with vaseline.

Players will dip their nose into the vaseline and touch it to the pom-pom to try to get it stuck to their nose.

Then they race to the Rudolph sign and try to get it to stick to Rudolph’s nose.

The catch? They can’t use their hands at all!
