Who doesn’t NEED and LOVE a great holiday game?! Here are 3 games perfect to plug and play in a matter of minutes. Grab them and use them while you still can… your advent calendar chocolates are almost all gone! January 1 will be here before you know it.
A holiday twist on the classic “Where’s Waldo?” this game can be played with individuals or as a team. The easiest way to get teams involved is to use a projector screen to display the image and have one person from each team stand up at a time. Give each of the “finders” a laser pointer to point out the reindeer as soon as they spot it! Whichever team finds the reindeer first gets point for their team. It’s a great game for all ages and you can make it more challenging by putting a time limit on each picture!
This game is designed to get your students thinking creatively and asking questions about an unknown object. The idea is that participants are shown a wrapped gift and as a team, a single contestant, or as a crowd, and they try to guess what the gift is. This game also provides a learning opportunity to explain who we are on the inside should not be a secret or be covered by “wrapping”, but that it should be obvious and visible to all.
This is an interactive game that will for sure get the crowd involved. Players are shown a picture of a celebrity and then have to decide if they are on Santa’s naught list (if they were say, arrested) or nice list (if they gave to charities) in 2015.
All these games come with complete instructions, materials, variations to play them, and lessons that can be incorporated into each of them!
