Christmas Games and Activities
By Gail Leino
The Candy Cane Ornament is a fun activity for kids
to make during your family Christmas party and it can be a tasty treat
after the holidays are over. You’ll need the following to make your
• Candy canes
• Craft foam squares in different colors, red,
green, yellow, etc.
• Ribbons for decoration
• Star pattern
You can easily cut out some star shapes from these
cute and fairly stable foam squares. Try cutting out three foam stars
each one smaller than the last and gluing them on top of each other.
Then glue small pieces of the mini-garland around the candy cane. You
can also cut out a small section of the ribbons and make it into a bow.
Glue the stack of foam stars onto the bottom of the candy cane and glue
the bow to the center of them. Once this has dried you can hang the
candy cane by its hooked end from the tree. Kids may end up eating the
candy canes before they’ve hung on the tree for very long though.
Another fun game to play around Christmas is the
‘What’s in Santa’s Stocking?’ game. Get several Christmas
stockings and place objects inside of them that you would find
interesting or unusual, such as a stuffed animal or a compact mirror.
One object per stocking, and don’t let the guests see you put the
objects into the stockings. Tie off the tops of the stockings and have
everyone sit down together. You might want to number the stockings so
you can keep track of them and what’s inside them. Then hand them
around to the guests and each guest must feel the object through the
stocking to try and figure out what’s inside. Everyone who guesses an
object right gets a small prize.
