Updated: Mar 4, 2019

Sick and tired of the same old Christmas games? Here are a collection of quick, easy and absolutely hilarious games to add more cheer the your Christmas this year!


All of these games are Minute to Win It style games and depending on the number of people playing, there are different ways you can play them. This means that you have to complete all tasks with in a minute.


Supplies Needed: Mini marshmallows, hot chocolate, and small cups

How to Play: Eat an entire bowl of mini marshmallows and drink a cup of hot chocolate in a minute (or race to be the first).


Supplies Needed: Christmas tinsel, chairs, and candy canes

How to Play: Tie a piece of ribbon or twine from one post or chair to another. Players must stand on top of the chairs and try to be the first to drop a candy cane from the chair onto the ribbon and get it to stay there. Play until the first player gets a candy cane to catch on the ribbon or see who can get the most in a minute. This is one of the more difficult Christmas minute to win it games for kids.


Supplies Needed: Christmas figurines or plastic Christmas ornaments, Christmas basket, duck tape, and panty hose

How to Play: Players must pass small toys or ornaments under their legs like they’re hiking a football and have a teammate catch them in a small Christmas basket that’s attached to the second player’s back. Teams race to be the first team to catch five or see who can get the most in a minute.


Supplies Needed: Plastic elves, holiday buckets

How to Play: Players have a minute to try and toss mini plastic elves into a line of buckets (one 5″ away, one 7″ away, and one 10 feet away). Player has to make elves into each of the buckets in the time to win.


Supplies Needed: White ping pong balls or ball ornaments, tissue boxes, duct tape, and panty hose

How to Play: Decorate white ping pong balls to look like snowman faces. Fill an empty tissue box with the snowmen ping pong balls and tape the tissue box (or use a velcro belt glued to the box) to someone’s backside and the player has to shake all of the snowmen out of the tissue box before the time runs out. Or if you’d rather not decorate like snowmen, use ornaments instead.


Supplies Needed: Balloons (these holiday balloons would be fun!) and winter gloves

How to Play: Player have to pop 10 balloons using just their hands with winter gloves on before the time runs out. We did this in our Avengers party with hulk gloves, and it was absolutely hilarious! Definitely one of the most fun minute to win it Christmas games for adults!


Supplies Needed: Brown crepe paper and reindeer headband

How to Play: Players have to wrap a teammate from head to toe with brown crepe paper and top with reindeer headband to finish the challenge. If player breaks crepe paper, they can continue wrapping to cover them completely.


Supplies Needed: White ping pong balls, fish bowl, cotton balls

How to Play: Player has to bounce (or toss) white ping pong balls into an empty fish bowl at the other end of the table while other players are throwing cotton balls at the ping pong balls the player is bouncing, trying to knock their balls out of the way. Player has to bounce one ping pong ball into the bowl to win.


Supplies Needed: Red poms, spoons, vaseline, and Rudolph poster

How to Play:

This is one of my absolute favorite minute to win it Christmas games!

Give each player a red pom pom and a spoonful of vaseline. Players have to race to be the first person to put a red pom pom on Rudolph’s nose (make sure to put a bit of vaseline on his nose as well) on the other side of the room.

To play, players must dip their nose into the spoonful of vaseline then get the red pom pom to stick to the vaseline on their nose. Once the red pom is on their nose, they must move across the room and stick it to Rudolph’s nose. The catch? They can’t use their hands at any time.


Supplies Needed: Ball ornaments, gift boxes, and painter’s tape

How to Play: Give each player an ornament and a gift box and have stand behind a lined taped on the ground with painter’s tape. Tape another line across the room (best done in a large empty room or gym).

To play, players must fan their gift box toward their ornament to get it to roll across the room and over the other line. Players can’t actually touch the ornament with the box, just use it to create wind to “blow” it.


Supplies Needed: Plastic spoons, cups, cotton balls, and bowls

How to Play: Give each player a plastic spoon and a cup full of cotton balls. On the other side of the room, place an empty bowl for each player. Players must race to get 10 cotton balls from the cup to the bowl on the other side of the room, using just the plastic spoon. The plastic spoon must be held in the player’s mouth. If they drop a cotton ball, they should leave it and go back and get another one.


Supplies Needed: List of Christmas songs

How to Play: Give each team a list of Christmas songs that everyone other than one person on the team can see. Teams must race to be the first to get their “guesser” to guess the title of all of the Christmas song titles on their list. Teams can work together like in reverse charades to act out the song title but no words, no singing, and no sign language. It’s speed charades. You can either do the first person to get through the entire list or first team to guess like five of the songs on the list.
