3 Fun Games to Keep Your Holiday Party Going
Avoid dull moments at your holiday party with one of these fun games that everyone will love.
1. What’s your favorite?
Write a question, such as “What is your favorite place for pizza?” on the top of a piece of paper. Clip paper to a clipboard and pass around the room asking everyone to write down their answer. For children, use simple questions like favorite color or TV show. If hosting moms, choose questions like “best date-night restaurant” or “favorite 30-minute meal.” For an easy party favor item, make copies of answers and hand out to the guests so everyone can try out the new suggestions.
This is a great game if everyone at the party knows each other. Include a questionnaire with the invitation asking questions that their friends might know, like favorite music group, restaurant or sports team. Write answers down on separate index cards. At the party, the hostess asks the question and picks one guest to hand out the cards to who she believes is the right person. She gets a point for each correct person. Play until all the answers are with the right guest for each question. The person with the most points wins.
3. Name your favorite
Write down simple holiday categories like Christmas carols, holiday movies or cookie-cutter shapes and put them in a bowl. Have the guests draw out a card and name five of their favorite items in that category in 30 seconds.
