If you’re looking for an Easy Christmas Party Game Idea, we’ve got you covered! This game requires just a few supplies, and takes just a couple of minutes to get ready to play. Keep reading to get all of the details.
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
Items that you’ll need to setup the game
- Four boxes that fit inside of each other – Any boxes will do as long as they fit inside of each other. I used 4 Christmas nesting gift boxes that I found at Hobby Lobby. They are super sturdy and I have been using them over and over again for many years now. Well worth the investment.
- Wrapping paper, scissors, and tape.
- A special treat to go inside of the smallest box. You’ll want to have enough for one for everyone playing the game. I like to use candy canes. Christmas socks are another fun idea.
When it comes time to play the game, you will need access to music. Your phone will work great.
First, you’ll take the smallest box and fill it with your special gifts or treats. Next, wrap the box with wrapping paper. You’ll then place the wrapped box and place it into the next smallest box and wrap it. Keep doing this until you have one “gift”.
How To Play The Game
To play the game, have everyone sit in a circle. Choose one person to give the gift to to start the game. When you start the music everyone will pass the wrapped gift around the circle. When the music stops, that person will get to open the gift. They of course will find another wrapped gift. Start the music again and continue the game the same way until the last person open the “gift” and gets to hand out a treat to everyone in the circle.
The kids have such a fun time playing this and are always thinking that they will be the one to finally open the gift. You could always make it harder by wrapping more boxes and more boxes. The game is even fun for adults to play too, just add some fun adult treats inside the final box.
