Outrageously Fun Holiday Activities!

Happy holiday season everyone!!

The winter holidays are nearly upon us, can you believe it?! As they say, time flies when you’re having fun! Speaking of fun, check out these 5 exciting games to bring to your next holiday party.

Gift Wrap Relay

This game is all about speed and gifts, do you think your team has what it takes? Host a gift wrap relay this holiday season by dividing your guests into teams of 4. Set aside tables (or designated areas) at opposite ends of the room with unwrapped gifts and wrapping paper supplies. Be sure to throw in one or two oddly shaped gifts (think pointy things here) to see who can REALLY handle their holiday wrapping. Guests will then race one by one to their tables and wrap a gift as fast as possible. This game ends when the winning team finishes wrapping all of their gifts. You can also have a judge that decides which gifts were wrapped the fastest, but also look the best and award points based on speed and looks. You can also use the gifts later for a holiday gift swap!

Christmas Movie Trivia

We always LOVE a good trivia game. Test your holiday attendees with an engaging game about their Christmas movie knowledge! You can ask questions like, “What was the name of the place in Rudolph where all the unwanted toys end up?” or “Who says ‘Good grief’ in this holiday classic?” to refresh everyone’s memory and then create more challenging questions as you move on.

Some great holiday movies you can grab quotes from:

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Santa Clause, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Home Alone, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Elf, It’s a Wonderful Life, Scrooged, Miracle on 34th Street, The Nightmare Before Christmas, A Christmas Carol, The Polar Express, Christmas with the Kranks, Frosty the Snowman, and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer just to get you started!

You can also skip all the work and let us host your holiday virtual team trivia event for you!

Name that…Fa la la la la tune

Are you that person who just can’t get enough of Christmas music? Good, you’ll love this one! Break the ice at your next holiday party by dividing your guests into teams of 4. This game challenges teams to write down the name of a Christmas tune after you say any single line of the song out loud. Remember to keep everyone’s answers handy as you’ll want to verify which team accumulated the most answers with the correct song!

Guess Who

A spin on the classic board game, but cuter! Ask everyone to submit a baby picture taken during the holiday season via email (the more adorable the better). Print them out, number them and place them on a table. Have your guests write all the numbers down and come up to the table and try to guess which photo belongs to which person at the party. The person who guesses the most correct is the winner. This is perfect for work gatherings and will bring you closer as you relive memories together with your teammates. Awwwww!

Cocoa Pong

This one will bring you right back to your college days! To play, begin by separating your group into teams of four. Next, set up some festive cups (OR use the classic red plastic Solo cups) in a triangle shape on each end of a large table. Fill each cup with warm cocoa about ½ full (NOTE: spiking with Bailey’s 100% optional) and give each team a big bowl of large marshmallows. Each team then takes turns trying to throw a marshmallow into one of the cups. If your team successfully throws it in, someone on the other team has to drink it and remove the cup, and you get to try to throw again. The teams who land the most marshmallows in the cups are declared the winners!

We hope you try out some of these festive games or consider joining us for some of ours!

Happy holidays everyone!
