Who said Christmas games are just for kids? Christmas games are also for adults and they don’t have to be serious. After all, adults like to get going to relive some silly childhood moments. Start the Christmas fun with these fun Christmas games for adults.
silly christmas games for adults
Is your group looking for an excuse to be silly? Why not choose a Christmas game that is all about goofing around? Give each team a pair of pantyhose and eight balloons. When the game begins, the team inflates the balloons to get them into the legs of the hose. To ensure that the game is completely fair, pantyhose must be queen size and teams in equal numbers.
The game ends when someone places all the balloons on the pantyhose legs, puts on the stuffed “horns,” and sings the first verse of the holiday favorite, “Jingle Bells.” When everyone is done with the game, take pictures of all your friends with fun antlers made out of balloons and pantyhose.
Christmas relay games for adults
Do your friends enjoy relay games? Why not make your own Santa Claus beard? He pulls out two large bowls filled with cotton balls and a jar of Vaseline. Apply Vaseline to the chin of each team member. The 2 teams should have about 5 people each. The first player in each row runs to one of the bowls to grab cotton balls and stick them on their greasy chins. When they have as many cotton balls as possible stuck to their chins, players run to the next player to give them a turn.
When the whole team wears a Santa Claus beard, they are the winners. This is another vacation game that really begs you to take photos so you can show them off for years to come. Have water and towels handy to remove the Vaseline when the game and photo session are over.
Quiet Christmas Games for Small Groups
Are your friends a small, quiet group that prefers less demonstrative games? Why not pack a bag for Santa? The game starts when you say: “I packed a bag for Santa and put some socks on it.” The next player goes on to say, “I packed a bag for Santa and put some socks and books in it.” As each player continues, they include all the items listed and add their own item. When you miss an item in the list, you are out of the game.
Christmas games for adults inspired by children
Do your friends love to relive their childhood during Christmas? Why not give your guests the chance to do just that at your Christmas party with a fun game that reminds them of a childhood favorite? Have your own Christmas scavenger hunt with search teams of 4 or less. Create item lists for teams to come back to.
You can keep the search local to your home or within the neighborhood area. Include Christmas items in the scavenger hunt, such as a red stocking, a sprig of holly, and a small wreath. If you decide to extend the treasure hunt around the city, it becomes even more exciting. Ask your guests to purchase a holiday-themed cereal box or take a photo to show they visited the local Christmas tree. Be creative and make the search action packed. Everyone loves this Christmas game because it reminds them of childhood. It’s a great way to socialize because as everyone works together, they get to know each other better.
Christmas kissing games for adults
Who doesn’t love chocolate and kisses? Is this why Hershey’s Kisses are such a hit at Christmas? Divide your group into two teams with two bowls of Hershey’s Kisses on each side of the room. Give each team a really big pair of gloves or mittens. The first person in line runs to the bowls and must unwrap and eat the Kiss while wearing bulky gloves. Once this is done, the player runs back to tag the next person and give them the gloves. When all team members are the first to enjoy their own kiss, the group wins.
