#1 Santa’s Delivery Game

Relay game to play in teams

This one is a good office Christmas party game because you can easily create teams with co-workers in different departments.

Santa's Delivery Game

How To Play Santa’s Delivery Game

The Purpose: The winning team will successfully deliver the most packages.

Supplies for the Game:

  • Wrapped gift boxes
  • Gift bags
  • Jingle bells to go inside of wrapped packages

Provide a large quantity of wrapped gift boxes and gift bags in various sizes with jingle bells inside for fun. No need for ribbon or bows.

Place a card table on both ends of the room. One will be the starting point where the packages will be placed. Select one person to be the hub manager. The hub manager is in charge of keeping count of the number of packages successfully delivered. 

One by one, team members aka delivery drivers, will pick up as many packages as they can carry and quickly deliver them to the table at the other end of the room. Once there they will put them all down then pick them back up and deliver them back to the first table where the next member of their delivery team will then go.

Any packages dropped on the floor must remain on the floor and cannot be retrieved except by the hub manager who will return them to the starting table.

As the competition continues, the later players will need to carry more and more packages. The team to deliver the most packages successfully wins.

#10 Stocking Stuffer Game

The Stocking Stuffer Game can either be a team relay or a one on one competition.

You will need:

  • 2 Christmas Stockings,
  • a bowl full of stocking stuffer goodies such as candy or Dollar Store trinkets
  • 2 spoons

Hang the stockings.

Place a large bowl full of the stocking stuffers onto a table near the stockings.

Each player gets a spoon which they will use to scoop up the stocking stuffers and fill their Stocking. If playing in teams, each player on the team gets one scoop then hands off the spoon to the next person in their relay team.

The first player or team to fill stocking wins.

#11 Candy Cane Game

There are so many different ways to use Candy Canes in Christmas games. I found this one on YouTube which looks like a lot of fun for families.

The object here is to get as many candy canes onto the one in your mouth as you can hold. You could do this as a relay by picking up one and carrying it to a designated location or filling a Christmas stocking with them. Use your imagination.

  1. It was challenging finding ‘new’ games for this collection! My family looks forward to the games every year and we love new ones! I created about 3 new games in this post with our party in mind. I cannot wait to play #2 and I plan to use those same bells to play #1. It will be so funny when the packages are dropped and bells keep ringing!

  2. I’m always looking for new games to play at our annual Girlfriends Party at church. We always have so much fun watching and participating in the games. We’ve played many of these, but a few of them are new to me. Yippee! One year I had a dance off and it was hilarious. This year we’re doing a painting party so there won’t be any games, but I’m saving this for next year since I’m always on the hunt for new games.

We enjoying hearing from you!
