10 Christmas party games for kids of all ages

We love a good game at Christmas, so we have come up with 10 Christmas party games for kids and beyond to get the party started!

Some of these are with the printables that we have on the site, and there are other ideas that you can use too. We love a printable board game, for example, as well as some of our favourite board games. Tried and tested by us that work well with the family.

If you have any other ideas for party games to play at Christmas, do let us know too, we are always open to new ideas.

1. Christmas murder mystery game

Who doesn’t love a bit of a mystery to solve? We certainly do in our house, so this is a great game to play with the family at Christmas. Get those creative juices flowing, and actually entertain the teens as well, as most of these games work with older kids too. And we all know how hard to please they can be at Christmas, right?

2. Christmas board game: Help Santa deliver

This is a printable board game that you will love to play with the whole family – and it is totally free! Help Santa around the board delivering all the presents, but be careful you don’t get stuck

3. Turkey activities: The Lost Turkey game

We know that Christmas isn’t complete without the Turkey – so we’ve found a board game that you can play with a turkey in it at Christmas! Who will be the first to save the Christmas Turkey?

4. Roll-a-Santa Christmas game

There is nothing better than the CLASSIC roll-a games, and we have a Roll-a-Santa game that’s perfect for you at Christmas. We’ve actually got a whole set of Christmas Dice games that you will love to play with the kids. Check out the Reindeer, Angel, Gingerbread, and Snowman versions too!

5. Christmas music bingo

Bingo games are one of our favourite things on KiddyCharts, but at Christmas it is important to bring something a little different to parties if you can. So we have included, not just any Bingo game, with a fabulous musical one to help the party get more into the Christmas Spirit!

6. Christmas indoor scavenger hunt plus a Christmas lights game

There is nothing that gets a party started more than a bit of a scavenger hunt, so we have an indoor one for you, as we know that the nights are a little dark and cold at Christmas time. Print these cards out and hide them about the house. Give prizes for even more fun. You can even give out the Christmas Lights scavenger hunt too, so that people can carry on the fun when they leave! Alongside this, why not print our Christmas scavenger hunt clue cards too.

7. Christmas tic tac toe

Sometimes a simple little game is a great way to have fun at a party. So why not print out this Christmas Tic Tac Toe game as a bit of an ice-breaker for everyone, young and old?

8. Pin the reindeer nose

The party isn’t complete without a pin-the-nose kind of a game, but pinning onto the donkey isn’t really suitable at Christmas, but somehow a reindeer seems more suitable for Christmas don’t you think?

9. Christmas time charades

Another classic party game is charades, so we have to include this in our list as well. Here is a printable charades game for your Christmas party, and if you are doing one at the end of the year, we have a New Year charades game for the to download as well.

10. Christmas Scattegories
