Christmas Party Games for Toddlers
Are you planning to host a party for toddlers this Christmas season? Here are some Christmas game ideas to spice up your holiday party for toddlers...
Always remember that everyone is a winner, and have a safe, happy holiday!
Pin The Nose On Rudolph
This game is played similar to 'Pin the Tail on the Donkey', except with a everyone's favorite reindeer!
Put a drawing of a reindeer on the wall, (minus its nose, of course), and give each child a red paper "nose" with a circle of tape on the back of it.
One by one, blindfold each child and spin them around a few times to dis orient them a little. Then aim them towards Rudolph, and then let them try to get their nose onto the proper place on Rudolph's face.
After everyone has had a turn, the child who came closest to the correct position wins!
Draw or paint a Santa face on a piece of wood or stiff cardboard. Cut an opening where Santa's mouth goes, and then lean it against a wall so that there is open space behind Santa's mouth.
Have the children take turns "feeding" Santa by trying to toss sandbags, beanbags, or Christmas candy into his mouth.
The child who gets the most items into Santa's mouth is the winner! (If you've been using candy as the items to toss, you might give all the candy Santa "swallowed" to the winner as the prize.)
Give each child a Santa hat to use during the game.
Have them stand in a circle, holding their hats, and then have a grown-up spill out a box of "snow" (Styrofoam packing peanuts) into the middle of the circle.
When "Go!" is called, all the children must scramble to pick up the snowballs and fill their hats with them as fast as they can. The first child to fill their hat and holler out "Snowman!" is the winner.
Played like "Simon Says". An adult (wearing Santa hat!!) calls out instructions; "Santa says touch your nose", "Santa says raise your hand", etc., and the children follow those instructions.
At some point the adult must make a command that does NOT include the words "Santa says". The children should not follow that command, (because Santa didn't say to), and anyone who does is "out".
Keep going until only one person is still in the game. That person is the winner!
Have the children stand on their hands and feet, pretending to be reindeer.
Put all the children on one end of the room, and on the other end, (several feet away from the wall), put an object to represent the North Pole. When an adult calls out "Go!" all the 'reindeer' race as fast as they can on four legs to the North Pole.
They must each run around the pole, and then return to their starting point. The first one back to the starting position is the winner, and receives a reindeer treat, (cookies, or some other kind of goodies to eat).
