To be honest, we all are extremely excited for this year’s Christmas eve. And every good Christmas party has a recipe for success: great company, a stellar holiday meal, familiar tunes, and a whole lot of cheer. Once you have polished off the figgy pudding, you will still need to occupy your family and guests for the rest of the evening. Well, that’s where games and activities kick in. JCPenney has rounded up some holiday family games and activities that your whole family will adore. And we are sure these games will become a new annual family tradition.
Solving the Jigsaw Puzzle Mystery
Sport your Christmas pajamas, grab a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows, and bring on the Christmas vibes. Let us recreate the iconic ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ with our jigsaw puzzle. This holiday season engages your family and kids in solving the mysterious puzzle of Charlie’s Christmas. Undeniably, jigsaw puzzles are a fun way to engage your whole family to complete one frame. And to take puzzling to a whole new dimension we have crystal puzzles from Disney Cheshire cat to Princess Aurora. Create them and let’s gaze at your creation with awe.
Monopoly and Christmas goes hand in hand, and it is the cherry on the cake when you have a Christmas-themed monopoly. A wonderful way to gather young and old family members to spend some quality time together and collect Christmas properties and trade them in for a Christmas tree. Watch out, you might get run over by a reindeer or end up with a lump of coal, go around the board in a Santa sleigh or get snowed. It is a game to celebrate season and family bonds.
|Sing-along Christmas Karaoke |
Is it even a Christmas party your family members are not holding a karaoke microphone, singing Christmas carols, and unleashing their inner rock star? From Silent Night to Jingle Bells sing your hearts out and create a festive family sing-along memory that will last a lifetime. You can also plan a karaoke competition or name the Christmas carols game or simply ask your kids to sing their favorite Christmas jingles.
Silent Night, Movies Night
Holidays are the best time to watch classic Christmas movies with your family. No matter how big the screen is, you know movies are going to be amazing when the whole family shares one plush throw and has a Christmas-themed mug full of hot white chocolate. Holiday movies are full of comforting childhood memories and hilarious moments leaving you with a smile on your face. Put on your projector and watch some of the best movies of all time like, How Grinch Stole the Christmas, David, and the Elves, or A Christmas Carol.
|Christmas Arts & Crafts |
This holiday season plan a DIY craft day with your little ones, get them toy tools, and let them create awe-struck designs. You can keep their creations around the house as festive decorations, as a table centerpiece for Christmas dinner, or hang them on a mantel, or your kids can gift them to family and friends. Indulge with them to create beautiful art pieces donned in holiday red or Grinch green.
Holiday- games and activities always create a warm and festive environment that spreads the season’s cheer and encourages families to come together. And you always have a blast playing them.
