Who's ready for some festive competition?!
For some families, Christmas can feel like more of a marathon than a sprint. Sure, there's opening the gifts (browse our favorite gift ideas!), preparing and enjoying the big Christmas ham, and then cleaning up afterward, but once you've eaten the figgy pudding and put away the dishes, it can be tough to find ways to occupy the crew. Let's get real here, there are only so many Christmas movies you can watch (and no one really wants to hear the same story Uncle Joe always tells for the hundredth time). And if you have overnight guests with young kids that need to be kept occupied, you're going to need some activities in your back pocket to stave off the inevitable, "I'm bored!"
The solution? These fun Christmas games. Engage your family and friends in a little competition to get everyone's adrenaline pumping and keep the post-holiday doldrums at bay. Best of all, many of these activities involve crafting or DIY, so the games are just as much fun to make as to play. You'll definitely want to set aside some time during the Christmas season for these holiday games for kids and adults.
