      Reindeer games are no longer reserved for Rudolph and company. If you’re finding some down time
      between all that shopping, wrapping and caroling, here are a few games sure to get you feeling jolly.

      1. Secret Santa

      During holiday gatherings, warm feelings and cozy hugs are sure to be abundant. But what’s a reunion
      without some wholesome mischief? Try this tricky game out for a laugh or two.

      First, decorate and cut out a snowman from a sheet of paper. Feel free to get as fancy with it as you’d like;
      the sillier he looks the better. Once you have Santa all suited up for the ride, secretly stick him onto the
      back of one of your guests. If and when that person notices, have them do the same. Try to get Santa to
      visit everyone before the end of the night. Remember, Santa won’t show up if he’s being waited upon, so
      make sure you get sneaky with it.                                                                                      Subscribe             10102             6664

      The first person to finish their snowman (or woman) wins.                                                                 James Beard Foundation: Arizona Honors

      3. Find the Ornament

      Here’s a chance to break out that photo printer you got for last year’s Christmas.

      After taking close-up photos of a few ornaments hung on your tree, print each picture, hang it on a wall and
      label it with a number. Give each guest a sheet of paper numbered to match the ornaments. Start the timer
      and let the guests search for the ornaments on the tree, marking them off on their lists as they are found.
      First one to complete the list wins. For a bit more of a challenge, think outside the tree. Have the guests
      scavenge for ornaments placed all over the house.

      4. Oh Christmas Tree

      To play, you’ll need green construction paper and some fun holiday stickers.

      The object of the game is to have each guest attempt to tear out the shape of a Christmas tree from the
      green paper while holding it behind their backs. No peeking until the end! After they are done tearing, hand
      out the stickers and ask each guest to try to decorate their creations with them. Finally, hang up all the trees
      and judge for the best looking one. Extra points go to the guest who managed to add lights and tinsel to
      their creation.

      5. Christmas Pictionary                                                                                                    Recent Tweets
      Just like the good ‘ole Pictionary you have buried somewhere in a closet, but with a delicious twist.
                                                                                                                                    @cd3signs thanks for the nice feedback. We love
                                                                                                                                    what we do.
      For this version, leave all the paper and pencils at your desk. You won’t need them for this. Instead, take a
      frosting bag and fill it with frosting. This will serve as your writing utensil. For your “paper” you can use the             @phxnewsproducer what part of Mexico?
      real thing, or try something different i.e. tinfoil, paper towels or if you’re feeling really culinary-inclined, extra-
      large sugar cookies. The concept of the game is the same: One team selects a clue and draws it, followed                      Our April Bridal issue is going to be amazing!
      by the opposing team trying to guess what it is. The winner is the team with most points, or the one who
      reached the end the fastest, if you decided to make use of the actual game board. Losing team gets to                         Would you still travel to Mexico now? 22 Tourists

      game is meant to be a relay race but it can be approached in a variety of ways. The first method is an
      assembly line. Divide into teams and assign each team member a task. One person will be the gift-grabber,
      the next will be the paper-cutter, the third will be the paper-taper, and so on. If you are wary of small
      children being around scissors, you can have the wrapping paper already cut to size ahead of time and the                 Archives
      tape already dispensed. Gift bags can also be used. Another approach would be to leave the wrapping to
      the adults and then have the children unwrap them. If an assembly line sounds a little hectic, the game can               Select Month
      be played on an individual basis. Instead of assigning each team member one task, assign each one gift to
      be wrapped in its entirety by that member. The winning team can be determined either by neatness, speed
      or number of gifts wrapped. If you’re playing for speed, this writer may not be held accountable for any
      poorly wrapped gifts.
