Christmas Finish My Phrase - An Game That Get Guests Talking and Sharing!

Christmas Finish My Phrase is a game where family, friends and even co-workers try to determine how someone will Finish a Phrase. It is kind of like Apples to Apples where you select and answer to match what someone else would choose.


Christmas Finish My Phrase
We like Christmas Finish My Phrase and enjoy the fact the it can be played in lots of different ways.
Kids try to Finish the Teacher's Phrase
Co-Workers Finish the Boss's Phrase
Guests try to Finish the Host's Phrases
And Kids can try to guest each others Phrase and so on.

We also thought that you can play this a different way.
Hand out the Christmas Finish My Phrase and have everyone complete the phrase as they would finish it.

Then once everyone is done filling out the sheet. Then let them know that you are playing Original Christmas Finish The Phrase. Be prepared for some puzzled looks and let them know that you are going to go over the list and a person will receive points if no other player wrote in the same phrase.

Example: Snow ________
8 people wrote in Snow Man, 3 Snow Flake, 2 Snow Tires and 1 Snow Blower - Then the person who wrote Snow Blower gets a point.

The person at the end of the game with the most points wins!
if you want you can even do two rounds - Round 1 Left side phrases and Round 2 Right side phrases and gift away 2 prizes.

This is a fun way to change up the game, but don't let anyone in on the twist or that will spoil the surprise.

Christmas Ornament Game, All Ages Party Fun

Christmas Tree Ornament Find is one of our favorite holiday games as it can be played by all ages and is both fun and frustrating.

Now it helps to plan ahead to play Christmas Tree Ornament Find because once the ornaments are on the tree it is hard to count them, so count them before you decorate the tree. Once the game is set up I think you will have a blast playing it. And best of all, if you have Christmas ornaments, a digital camera and paper the game costs a little more than your time and effort.

The premise is simple you pull an Ornament card and then head to the tree to find that ornament. One version has you finding and removing the ornament (hands on) and the other version has you counting ornaments (hands off). We have ideas and suggestions so you can play each version without chaos, accidents or broken ornaments.

In both cases, you need to act fast because you have limited time to find a Christmas ornament or are racing against another team. Winners are determined differently in each version of this game.

If you like this Christmas game idea you can get the game details, instructions and variations here – Christmas Tree Ornament Find Game.

Christmas Tree Ornament Find is good for:
Kids and Youth Groups
For Relay Teams when you have at least two Christmas trees
Great game if kids make their own ornaments
Families and Co-Workers can play as a team
Fun when large trees have lots of ornaments

First is a new version of the popular Cerebral Christmas Carol Match game, Cerebral Christmas Carol Match II. Yes, if you and your friends had fun matching up Christmas Carols in the first game then you enjoy this new round of challenges in II.

So get your Christmas Carol thinking caps on and go!



Christmas Carol Picture Puzzle
The Second Christmas Carol game is fun for all ages but a unique challenge for those kids from 6 - 10. This Christmas Carol Picture Puzzle combines identifying what the pictures mean and matching them to the song.

So reading is important, however this can also be a fun activity where you can work in teams (child and adult) to solve the riddles together.

Winners can be determined by either the most correct answers or by the person to match all the answers correctly in the fastest time.No matter how you play it, I think the Christmas Carol Picture Puzzle should be a lot of fun.

We still have a variety of other Christmas music games for you, but wanted to share these new games so you might be able to something new this year.

Classic Guess Game Adds Fun to Christmas Raffles and Office Parties

Add the Classic Guess how many games to your office Christmas party and add a little intrigue to your Holiday party. Most people have played How more candies, pennies or candy corn is in the jar. Well how about how many Gifts are in the Giant Gift?

Kids will be in awe of the Holiday game and it will have guests of all ages wondering what is inside, 100 small gifts or 5 large ones. And if you have to many gifts for a box, then see if you have one of more red sheets you can cover them with and call it, Guess How Many Gifts are in Santa's Bag?

Get details and instructions on How Many Gifts are in the Gift Box?

We we started thinking above all the types of gifts that could go into the box, this game becomes a real challenge. Here are some ways it could be tricky.
- A shirt box could hide 8 to 10 necklace boxes or 20+ ring boxes.
- Five or ten tie boxes don't take up much room
- Nestling boxes of 3, 4 or 5 would be fun to open
- Ornaments or Christmas favors could be put in the box.

And after the ornament and Christmas favors idea crossed my mind, we thought it might be a great idea to place raffle gifts inside the Big Gift Box as well and you can give them away as you are counting the presents.
So a game within a game!
A simple game idea turned into a more exciting game!

The only thing is to not to have so many items that it takes forever to count. So if there are boxes of 50 ornaments as employee gifts then just count them as 50 and move on.

Some ideas to make this Christmas game unique
- Place a ton of Gifts in the giant Gift Box
- Place less then 10 gifts in the Gift Box
- Have the kids Guess on the number of gifts in the box and the parents play to win raffled gifts.
- Have everyone guess the number of gifts

The goal is to be creative and have fun!

Well for better or worse we've updated this Christmas Party Game where it's more like musical chairs and not a gift exchange. Our Left / Right Naughty or Nice Gift Passing Game is a game of gift passing, creative stories and fun.

In this version, you'll need a bunch of gift boxes, naughty and nice slips and some creative stories that involve passing gifts to the Left and Right. Good news we have a sample on the site to get you started.

What we like about our Naughty or Nice Left Right Gift Passing game is you don't need the guests to bring gifts, you can play it more than once and you get to use creative stories.

However if you need and enjoy the traditional Left Right Gift Passing Stories, we offer that party game too!
Plus you can find over 50 additional Holiday and Christmas Party Games for your party at our site.
