Around our house during the holidays, playing games is big! Since we have such a big family, it is a lot of fun to have games that can include everyone who wants to play. I've written a couple of other posts suggesting party games and board games that include a lot of players.
Well, I got to thinking that one classic game that can include everyone is Charades. If your young ones enjoy watching Frozen II, they will recognize Charades from the beginning of that movie. I thought wouldn't it be great to have a Christmas version of Charades all ready to go? So, I sat down with Lindsey and a few of my grandkids and we brain stormed ideas that would be great to include in a game of Christmas Charades. Let me tell you, we did pretty good! This game includes 83 items to act out in 6 different categories!
I sent the list to Alicia, and she designed the rules and tips sheets and the cards. Then, I printed them all off on some cute coordinating Christmas card stock. You can pick up a pad of Christmas card stock at Hobby Lobby for a good price.
Now, all you have to do is click the button to get the PDF file, print them off and cut them apart with a paper cutter. Then, you are ready to play! You're welcome! Merry Christmas!
So, go ahead, click the button! (Be sure you have plenty of red ink. Mine came out a little orange.) You could also send them to Staples or Office Max to get them printed if you want. You can always use white card stock instead of the Christmas print, but I love the Christmas print.
I have to confess that I accidentally printed the rules in landscape at first. I had to reprint that part. But, it turned out to be a lucky thing because I cut out the title of the game and taped it with wide clear tape onto a manila envelope to label the game and store it to use again and again. You could always just print the first page twice, or you could laminate the rules onto the front and back of the envelope. If you make it look fancy enough, this could even be an inexpensive gift to a friend or neighbor with a large family. (By inexpensive, I mean practically free, except for the paper and ink!)
We even included some blank cards so that you can add some of your own ideas to act out! I already thought of one we forgot, "Deck the Halls." Hmm, how would you act out "Deck" or "Halls" in charades? Could be a tricky one!
I can hardly wait to have a familt get together and play this version of Charades! I think it will be a ton of fun! I hope that you will enjoy playing Christmas Charades with your family as well. Let me know if you think of good things to add that we left out!
