5 Family Christmas Games to Try This Weekend
The holiday season brings many traditions and evokes feelings of nostalgia and excitement. You may bake a special cookie during the holidays, sing a special holiday song, or you could be looking for a tradition to start with your family. Today, we want to help you start a holiday tradition by sharing our picks for the top five Christmas games to try this weekend.
Snowball toss is a great game for the whole family to enjoy. All you need is a wreath, a pail, and some large marshmallows. Then let the fun begin! Don’t plan on reusing the marshmallows for toasting though!
Who doesn’t love a good round or two of pin the nose on Rudolph? This could also be pin the carrot on the snowman, the beard on Santa, and so much more. Pick your favorite, or use a different one each year.
Bingo is a classic for any time of the year, so why not make it a holiday tradition? Use red and green M&Ms® to keep track of the board, and the winner gets to enjoy theirs!

This may be your kid’s vote for the new holiday tradition. With just a few items, they roll each other into snowmen! You could also use green streamer paper to build a Grinch. These will make great photos for years to come.
Memory games are great brain exercises, and a great way to learn over the holidays. Use Hershey’s Kisses® and put numbers or holiday symbols on the bottom. Then ask your student to find the match. When they’re done, try making a bigger board and, of course, let them enjoy a treat or two.
