How To Play The Jingle Bell Shake

Each contestant gets an empty tissue box tied to their backsides. (Each box, as explained below, gets two holes poked into it. A string or ribbons goes through each hole and then that ribbon gets tied around each players hips)

Put 10 or 12 jingle bells into each box

Let each player dance around for 1 minute. The point of the game is to shake as many jingle bells out of the box in this 60 second dance session.

Get some prizes for the top 3 shakers!

  • Explain to the players that they must shake the jingle bells out of the boxes without touching them.
  • The one who shakes out the most jingle bells is the winner!
