Christmas games for kids
There are plenty of nice Christmas games for kids that are designed to entertain everyone. These games are perfect for a family gathering when kids of different ages are looking forward to a new way to have fun. Here are a few Christmas games for kids.
This is a great game which you can play provided you can get your hands on some Styrofoam balls. To play this Christmas game, you need to create separate teams. Then the players from different teams try their hand at balancing a Styrofoam ball on a spoon. Not only that but they also must carry the ball a certain distance. Whichever team completes the distance without dropping the ball is declared the winner.
Passing the parcel
This is a fun game that only requires the use of presents that are wrapped in multiple layers. To play this exciting Christmas game, you need nothing more than some nice entertaining music. As the music plays, the players must pass the parcel to the next player. As soon as the music stops, the person who is left holding the parcel will have to remove one layer from the present. The winner is the person who ends up unwrapping the final layer.
If you want to play this game with preschoolers and young kids, then make sure you use smaller presents. Young kids and preschoolers, as well as toddlers, are not as patient as their older counterparts. So, to make things more exciting for them makes sure that within each layer you place a small gift. When the child removes a layer and finds a gift in it, it makes the game even more exciting.
