Christmas Games For Teenagers

Christmas Games For Teenagers

Christmas parties are a time for teenagers to let their hair down and have some fun. One of the most popular activities at these parties is playing games. Games are a great way to socialize and meet new people and also a chance to show off your competitive streak.

So what better way to celebrate the festive season than by playing some fun Christmas games? If you’re looking for ideas, we’ve got you covered. Here are some great games that are sure to get everyone in the holiday spirit.

Take it Off

To start this game, the host will put on some reindeer antlers. Then as guests arrive hand each of them antlers to wear. Tell your guests that they need to keep the antlers on until they see you have taken yours off.

Wait until everyone is playing games and having fun, then secretly take off your antlers and see if anyone notices. The first person to notice and take off their antlers is the winner.

Christmas Charades

This classic game is always a hit, especially at holiday gatherings. Just act out popular Christmas movies, songs, or traditions and let everyone else try to guess what you’re doing. Christmas Charades is a fun icebreaker game that will get everyone laughing.

Santa’s Workshop Challenge

Put your guests to the test with this fun game! Provide a box of items like Christmas ornaments, lights, bows, and other decorations for each team. Then give them a set amount of time (usually 10-15 minutes) to create their own mini version of Santa’s home at the North Pole. Or hand out small Christmas trees and get the teams to decorate it. The team with the best creation wins!

Wrapping Race

Challenge your guests to a wrapping paper race! Divide everyone into two teams and give each team an equal amount of wrapping paper, tape, ribbon, and gifts. Then set a timer for five minutes and have them see who can wrap all their presents first. The catch? Each team can only use one pair of scissors between them, so they’ll have to get creative!

Christmas Carol Karaoke

Belt out your favorite holiday tunes together and see who knows all the words (or make up your own words if you’re feeling extra festive). Or have someone sing the first few lines of a Christmas Carol and everyone has to try to guess the next line.

Holiday Scavenger Hunt

Make a list of holiday-themed items and see who can find them all first. You can even add in a few challenges, like taking a selfie with Santa or singing carols. Or try a Christmas Treasure Hunt where you have to solve clues along the way.

Guess The Holiday Movie Quote

Write down some popular quotes from Christmas movies and see who can guess them correctly. You can even make it a competition to see who can name the movie each quote is from.

Who Am I?

Write down the name of a famous person or character on a slip of paper and attach it to someone’s forehead (without them seeing). Then everyone takes turns asking yes or no questions about the person until they guess who it is. For an extra challenge, try doing it without using any proper nouns!

Pin The Nose On Rudolph

This classic party game gets a festive holiday twist. It is not just kids who like this game, it is also popular with teens! Just print out a picture of Rudolph and let everyone take turns trying to pin his nose in the right place blindfolded. Whoever gets closest wins a prize.

Saran Wrap Ball Game

This game is sure to cause some laughs as everyone tries to unwrap gifts that have been wrapped in saran wrap! You can add some extra challenges such as players must wear oven mitts, or they must unwrap the layer while holding the ball behind their back. 

Ornament Decorating Contest

Give each team or individual a plain glass ornament and some holiday decorations like glitter, ribbons, paint, and pom poms. Then let them get creative as they decorate their own unique Christmas ornament.

Human Snowman

For this game divide your players into equal teams. One person from each team will be the ‘snowman’. The others in the team need to wrap them in toilet paper or crepe paper to resemble a snowman. Then they need to add a hat, scarf and any other decorations to complete their snowman.


Test everyone’s knowledge of all things Christmas with this festive trivia game. Prepare some questions in advance and then let your guests compete to see who knows the most about Christmas movies, songs, traditions, and more.

Dice Gift Exchange

This is a classic game that never gets old. Tell everyone to bring a wrapped present to the party and leave it in a box at the entrance. It is a good idea to set a price limit on the gifts of say $10-$15.

When it is time to play, have everyone sit in a circle and one at a time they can choose a gift from the box of gifts. Starting with the youngest player, they roll two dice and add up their score. Then they follow a set of instructions for each number;

  • Total of two – everyone must pass their presents to the first person on their right.
  • Total or three or nine – you can steal any present you want from someone else.
  • Total of four or ten – everyone must pass their presents to the first person on their left.
  • Total of five or twelve – you can unwrap the gift you are holding and that is your gift to keep and you are out of the game.
  • Total of six – you can choose someone to swap presents with.
  • Total of seven – allows you to roll again.
  • Total of eight – you unfortunately miss a turn.
  • Total of eleven – Everyone must trade their gift with someone else.

The game ends when everyone has unwrapped a gift.

We hope this list has inspired you to try out some new games this year and create some lasting memories with your friends and family. Merry Christmas!
