Holiday party ideas for your party:
There are so many different party games and activities we've seen that are so
merry and we agree with several articles we read combined and paraphrased here:
There are several benefits to
adding fun holiday games to your party; from guests
relaxing, interacting with more than the usual people they
talk with, children and adults can enjoy the time together,
there will be giggles, laughter and your party will be more
fun. The whole purpose of games is to add excitement and
adventure into the mix. Whichever holiday game or
games you choose to have your party guests play, your party
is sure to be more lively because of them. The number of
fun holiday games at your next holiday party is almost
limitless - and can be enhanced by your imagination.
Try to pick games that use different skills so more people
will find their 'favorite game.'
Many games are classics and some are remakes designed solely
for holiday parties. While other games may not be designed
solely for holiday parties, there is a good chance that they
would still be a great fit. You can preplan some of
the games or you can let your party guests decide on
some holiday games or offer their own game suggestions.
A holiday game may be just the right transition from one
activity to another. If all of the guests don't know one
another a game can work as an 'ice-breaker' and get them all
warmed up :-) Don't be afraid of using children's games for
the adults - most games work for both kids and adults with a
few modifications. Whether you are hosting an all children's
party or a party with both children and adults, your guests
can enjoy playing holiday games. Holiday games will keep
kids interested in the party for a longer time. Having happy
kids is ideal for just about any party, but especially
parties where adults are also present; it allows the adults
to also enjoy themselves. Games tap into our 'inner
child' and let us all let our hair down and relax.
Don't forget to look at our classic games too
to add excitement and tradition to your holiday party.
We include the games, staff, canopies, tables, and prize

Pass the Candy Cane is played like hot potato, except the children pass a large
candy cane until the music stops. The person with the candy cane at the end of
the game gets to keep it.
In Pass the Present, wrap a small present like a Christmas chocolate Santa or
candy cane in a tiny box, then put it in a bigger wrapped box, inside a bigger
wrapped box, inside a bigger box, etc. Alternatively, wrap the gift in several
layers of different Christmas wrapping paper. To play the game, everyone pass
the gift around while Christmas music plays, and when the music stops whoever is
holding the present gets to open it before stepping out of the circle. The gift
continues around the circle until the last box is opened or the last layer of
paper is unwrapped. The person who unwraps the final box gets to keep the item.
'What's Different?' starts with everyone wearing a Santa hat, and then during
other activities at the party one person removes their hat, when you see them
remove their hat, you remove yours, the party continues and eventually only one
person (most un-observant guest) is the only one wearing a hat.
