Christmas Carol Charades
Instead of singing along to ‘Jingle Bells’ or ‘Deck the Halls’, why not act it out? It’ll be pretty fun to see everyone trying to convey concepts like sleigh rides and boughs of holly!

Pictionary ─ with a Christmas twist
In the spirit of Christmas, set the theme to holiday movies. Think along the lines of “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, “A Christmas Carol” and “Love Actually”.  Just split everyone into two groups and have each side come up with a list of 10 titles for the opposing team to draw.

Hide & Seek
Make the gift exchange even more by fun by having everyone at the party hide their presents in every nook and cranny of your home. Just be sure to mark the no-go zones of your homes if you have non-child-friendly spots or private areas.

Pass The Clothes
Set everyone in a circle and pass a bag of Christmas outfits, reindeer horns, Rudolph noses and other fun party wear. When the music stops, the person holding the bag has to put something on. May the best dressed win.

Human Bingo
Does Uncle Boon repeat the same story year after year about how he shook hands with the Queen of England when he was a kid living in Toa Payoh? Does Aunt Jenny buy the same gift set every year? Hand out pen and paper, and have each guest create Bingo cards by filling each square based on what they think others will do or talk about at the party. Then, mark off the squares when the predictions materialise. Bingo.
