Ideas for Christmas Games for Kids

Like food and gifts, the meanings behind Christmas are plentiful. For the super religious, it’s about being thankful to their Lord and saviour. For the more secular amongst us, it’s about presents, decorations and indulgent meals. But no matter where you stand on the religion scale, one thing we can all agree on is that the festive season is a time to be spent with family, and often that means spending time with children. And kids love it when the adults humour the kids with a bit of child’s play, so kick off those shoes and embrace your inner child with these fun games. 

Christmas scavenger hunt

Scavenger hunts don’t need to be confined to Easter Weekend. You can do a Christmas-themed scavenger hunt, and with the great weather we have over Aussie Christmas, you can use the garden as well, which makes for some great hiding places. If you’ve never set up a scavenger hunt for kids before, here’s how it works. You give them the first clue to find the first prize, then with the first prize, you leave a clue to the second prize, and so on. If you’re lyrical, you can make the clues little poems, but remember to keep them simple. Make sure you have enough prizes for all the kids playing so no one feels left out, and a nice touch is making the last one a big one. 

Christmas memory game

We all like to spoil our kids a bit over Christmas time. Sure, this spoiling comes in the form of lots of gifts and delicious treats, but we also let them stay up a little later than usual during the holidays. That means there’s a bit more time for fun indoor games for the whole family after dinner, and the Christmas memory game is a good one. What you do is take 15 toys or household objects and put them into a box. Give everyone a piece of paper and a pen and allow each person to look at the items in the box for a couple of minutes. Then remove the box from everyone’s sight and remove one item from the box. Return the box to the table and ask the players to write down what item is missing. Repeat until there is only one item left. The person with the most right answers wins! 

Christmas cookie decorating

This Christmas activity is super fun because you all get to enjoy the spoils afterwards. All you need is plain biscuits, icing, hundreds and thousands, edible cookie decorations, plastic butter knives and a few rolls of foil. Spread the foil over the table top to minimise the mess and let the kids do the rest. No doubt you’ll get some icing on your favourite couch and you’ll be vacuuming up hundreds and thousands for weeks to come, but those chores with be peppered with good memories. 

Backyard cricket

Too often we take our Christmas queues from those shivering Northern Hemisphere residents, from the carols we enjoy to stuffing out tummies with roast meats and potatoes, which are so inappropriate for our climate. Having a string of holidays in the middle of summer is a great reason to play some backyard cricket. We won’t insult your Aussie sensibilities by explaining cricket – we know you know. So get out there and hit a few balls around.

If you're still stuck for ideas, there's plenty of gorgeous Christmas party supplies to give you some great ideas for planning your Christmas this year at Pink Frosting.
