Holiday Scavenger Hunt
First, create a set of clues or prompts to use in your holiday scavenger hunt. You could also use this set off Amazon.
This engaging game combines the excitement of a scavenger hunt with the festive charm of the holiday season. With its beautifully designed cards, creative challenges, and the joy of working together to unravel the mystery, the “Holiday Scavenger Hunt” is the perfect way to create cherished holiday memories and foster a spirit of togetherness during this special time of year.
Whether you’re gathered around the Christmas tree or exploring the winter wonderland in the classroom, this game promises hours of laughter, fun, and holiday magic for all ages.
Reindeer Games is a classic holiday activity that brings out the giggles in kids and helps improve their coordination and fine motor skills. This game is easy to set up and offers a delightful twist on ring toss.
A great way to play scattergories with young learners is by creating a list of alphabet letters and having children come up with a holiday word that begins with each letter. Preschoolers can work together and say the holiday words aloud, but older children may be able to write their answers on paper independently.
If that’s too difficult this emoji Christmas carol scramble might be up their alley. Just unscramble the words to your kids favorite Christmas songs to win!
Finish the Christmas Songs
Have you ever played the Christmas Carol Game? Mickey’s Christmas Carol Game is the perfect children’s holiday game for family game night! You can play a similar game in your classroom too.
To get started, begin singing a Christmas song and have your preschoolers finish the verse. This fun mad libs style game is great for helping kids develop literacy skills and practice concepts like rhyming.
Christmas Charades is a fantastic game to encourage creativity, language development, and lots of laughter during the holiday season. It’s a festive twist on the timeless game of charades.
For a cozy family game night or classroom Christmas party, The Santa Claus Christmas Board Game by Zobmondo is a great choice. This board game combines strategy, luck, and holiday spirit for endless entertainment.
Christmas Bingo adds a holiday twist to the beloved classic game, providing kids with an engaging way to hunt for Christmas-themed treasures on their Bingo cards.
Feel free to customize the rules to suit the age and skill level of your kids. For example, you can make it more challenging by requiring a full blackout (filling the entire card) for the win.

My final fun Christmas game idea for kids is to play trivia. Trivia games are great for helping students commit important facts to memory. Plus, they’re a lot of fun!
