Catch the stocking game for Christmas

This game is important for kids as children symbolize stocking as Christmas gifts. What you have to do is hang some stocking of different colors filled with gifts and candies on the Christmas tree. You need a tall Christmas tree to play this game.

A kid has to jump and catch the particular color stocking asked by the other children. Encourage the other children to ask the kid playing the game to catch the stocking that is at more height. Give the player a timer such as 10 to 15 seconds to get the stocking. If he is able to get the stocking, then the stocking gift is his prize. Children of every age group can play this Christmas party game.

You can also play this party game another way also. Ask the children to guess the gift inside the stocking. Let them touch the stocking for few seconds. It would be fun for children to imagine and figure out gifts inside the stocking.
