Easy Christmas Games for Kids

In many houses around the festive period, families get together to enjoy food, gifts, laughs and of course games.

It can sometimes be difficult to find games that all ages can get involved in and enjoy together, especially when you have young children.

Here are a few ideas suitable that all the family are sure to be engaged with. I'd love to know what games you play with your family.

Pin The Nose on the Snowman

A festive re make of the classic pin the tail on the donkey, this is a fun game to play and kids can get involved in advance making the snowman.

Using a large piece of paper, draw a snowman. You could use cotton wool to create his body and give him a cheery smile. Don't draw a nose on the snowman.

On a separate piece of card, draw an orange carrott nose and cut it out. Stick some poster tak on the back so that it can be stuck on the snowman and removed for each player.

Take it in turns to blind fold a player, turn them around slowly and then let them try and pin the nose on the snowman. The winner is the person who gets the closest.

Animal Charades

Charades is another party game classic. Young children can find it difficult to join in especially if they're too young to read.

Why not draw pictures of different animals on cards or if you're not up to drawing, you could cut them out of a magazine or print some from the internet.

Split your family into two teams.

Pop the animal cards in a bowl and then each player takes a turn to choose an animal card. They have to act it out or make the noises of the animal but no words are allowed. The player's team guesses the animal within an agreed time and if they're correct they get a point. You'll probably find that the kids are better at doing this than the adults!

Modelling Masters

Similar to animal charades, this game follows the same rules except there's to be no talking at all and the players take it in turns to model the item on their card. You can make it as simple or as difficult as you like depending on the age of everyone involved. If you have young children, think about what they can model themselves when they usually play with playdough. Snakes, snails, bowls, sausages and cakes are a few ideas to try.

Why not make your own glitter play dough for this game.
