Kids Christmas Games - Christmas Observation
Place around ten to twelve christmas objects on a tray or table (the older the players the more objects should be used). Allow players to stand around the table or tray and look at the objects. During that time the aim of each player is to note and remember as many of the things as possible. Cover the objects with a cloth and give the players five minutes in which to write the fullest list they can of the objects seen. The winner of the game is the one who remembers the most objects.
As a rule a word of two or three syllables is chosen, the syllables are first acted, then the whole word, and then the audience guess what it was. Try these christmas words:
- Christmas eve
Kids Christmas Games - The Donkey's Tail

On brown paper (wrapping paper does well) draw a good sized donkey without a tail. Fix this with blu tack or cellotape to a door or wall. Cut out a donkey's tail from brown paper, affix a piece of blutack to the underside where the tail will attach to the donkey's body.
Each player in turn then holds the tail at the end with the blu-tack shuts his eyes (or use a blindfold), and, advancing to the donkey, sticks the tail in what he believes to be the right place. Open eyes or take off blindfold to see where you have stuck your tail.
Al players should standing a circle and choose one of the players to be the Santa. His must decide on different things to be done, the funnier the better, which must be obeyed only when the order begins with "Santa says." For instance, "Santa says: 'sit down!'" which, of course, all obey; then perhaps comes: "stand up!" which should not be obeyed, because Santa did not start with "Santa says." Those who get the action wrong must sit out of the game
