- Xmas games, crafts and fun!


Stuck for ideas to add life to your primary or elementary school classroom this Christmas? Here are five, fun Christmas games that can help to foster festive spirit in the classroom, with minimum setup. These activities are sure to lighten up the moods of your little ones this Christmas season.


1. Christmas Gift Pass

To play this classic variant on the old "Pass the Parcel" birthday game, divide the class into groups and have each group stand in a circle. Then, provide each group with a small wrapped gift and some music. When the music starts, the players pass the gift around the circle as quickly as they can. When the music stops, the person holding the gift unwraps one layer of paper. The game continues with the gift being passed and unwrapped until the final layer reveals a small prize inside. This game is simple to set up and doesn't require many materials, making it a great option for a classroom setting.

2. Christmas Charades

Write Christmas-themed words or phrases on slips of paper and place them in a hat. Players take turns drawing a slip of paper and acting out the word or phrase without speaking. The rest of the players must guess what they are trying to convey.

3. Pin the Nose on the Gingerbread Man

This seasonal twist on the game of "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" can be made easily by drawing a large gingerbread man on a piece of paper and creating small noses to be pinned on. Blindfold each player in turn and have them try to place the nose on the gingerbread man.

4. Decorate the Christmas Tree

Provide each group with a paper tree and a pile of holiday-themed cutouts (ornaments, stars, candy canes, etc.). Set a timer for a certain amount of time and see which group can decorate their tree the most creatively.

5. Wrap the Present Race

Divide the class into pairs and provide each pair with a box, wrapping paper, and tape. Set a timer for a certain amount of time and see which pair can wrap their box the quickest and neatest. This game can be made more challenging by adding obstacles or tasks to be completed before the wrapping can begin.
