Jolly up your Christmas this year with some Christmas-related games that are fun, inclusive and likely to get even the most crotchety relatives giggling––at least a little! The games can involve prizes if you want but given it’s already a season filled with gifts, you might just like to play them for fun and to break the ice.

Steps Method 1 Hershey’s Kisses Game

How to Create Christmas Games

1 Divide everyone into two (or more) groups.

4 Unwrap the kiss and put it in your mouth (while wearing the gloves). You may only use your hands—no teeth to unwrap the kiss.

5 Run back to your line. You may go as soon as you have the kiss in your mouth. Tag the first person in line. Then, take off the gloves/mittens and give them to the person you tagged.

3 It is best if the gifts are really well wrapped. To make it really tough, perhaps wrap in several layers and use some tough tape.

6 Unwrap. The first player to get roll doubles tries to unwrap the gift. In the meantime, the other teams keep rolling to try to get a double before the gift is unwrapped. If they get a double, the gift immediately passes to the winner of the roll and so on.
