Christmas Party Games for Families
by Louise D'Allura on December 2nd, 2010

If you're hosting Christmas and don't want it all to be about the food, why not add some games to the mix? 

We've taken some inspiration from all places including our favourite show Spicks and Specks!  We've tried to pick games that will work for kids, some that will work for the adults and some that will work for both!  Have fun!!

Timed Guessing Games
This includes naming the gifts on each of the 12 days of Christmas, naming as many Christmas carols as you can, taking a word and making as many words as you can from it, and a Christmas word scramble. You can have little stocking stuffers for the winners. Kids and adults are good for this one.

Family Trivia
Who knows the most about their relatives? Let each relative write down something that happened to them and give them to the person in charge of the game. Everyone else gets a piece of paper. After each question is read, all players write down whom in the room each is referring to. The one with the most correct answers at the end of the list wins!

Charades
This is a tried and true party game. Mix it up so some of the guesses relate to Christmas and popular cartoons, movie, book, song, or even event. The team with the most correct answers wins. Just like on Spicks and Specks you could make this a drawing game - perfect way to recycle big sheets of Christmas wrapping paper!

Name that Christmas Carol
Just like on Spicks and Specks grab about 6 books - really dull or interesting ones (that you or your Christmas guests bring) and write the names of Christmas carols on a card.  Stick one in each book and each family member has to sing the Christmas Carol using the words in the book, but to the melody of the Christmas Carol.  Whoever guesses the tune first wins a prize!!  Start off with easy carols and progress to harder ones!
