Amazing Christmas Games That Preschoolers Would Love

Do you want to keep your little ones busy during this holiday season? There are many Christmas games for preschoolers that will keep them entertained for hours. Not only these Christmas party games for kids keep them occupied for hours but they also help you spend time as a family – the special moments you will cherish forever.

Here are 5 amazing Christmas games that your child would love:

1. Pass the Bow

Pass around a gift-wrapping or present bow to teach young children about patience and taking turns. Play a Christmas song while passing around the bow, stop the song, and whoever has the bow last gets a present from under the tree. Continue until all children have a gift in their lap.

2. Stocking Journals

Set up a craft table full of supplies to create a "stocking journal," which is essentially a stocking shaped journal that they can decorate and draw what they think Christmas is all about and what they would like to have in their stocking.

3. Guess the Gift Box

Take a large or medium-sized box, wrap it up like a Christmas gift but leave the bottom open so you can place objects underneath it. This is a guessing game that can be quite challenging, but still fun. Children guess what's under the box through clues (you can also reward them with what’s underneath).

4. Ornament Toss

Similar to a sack toss game that many children are familiar with, except the box is meant to look like a Christmas tree, and kids can take turns to throw in plastic, unbreakable ornaments into the holes in the Christmas tree for points or just for fun.

5. Candy Cane Ring Toss

Again, a similar game but with a Christmas twist! This one features candy canes that can be easily tossed for points or just for fun like the other games mentioned. Then, the candy canes can be eaten later on after the game.

Now it’s time to gather around the Christmas tree and ask your children to put their game face on!
