One of my goals this year is to get more games that are both entertaining for the adults and that my 5 year old can play. So many of the kid’s games are boring (Chutes and Ladders anyone?) so the little ones get indulged in 1-2 games during the holidays before we move onto more challenging games.

I love Cranium and charades is totally a part of that game. That inspired me to create a family-friendly charades game that can be played by everyone. There are pictures for my beginning-readers and words to help them practice. They can act out their cards without any help which makes them feel more independent too.

Family Christmas Charades

This free printable family Christmas Charades game is the perfect festive way to kick back with the family this holiday season. Even better, it’s super portable so you can take it along to all of the festivities with you no matter how far you travel.

How to Play

Step 1

Print out your free printable family Christmas Charades game. Be sure that you have the double-sided box checked on your computer if printing on your home computer. I also recommend printing them on cardstock for more durable cards.

Step 2

Place all of the printed cards in a small bag and give them a shake.

Step 3

Divide into teams and take turns drawing a card from the bag.

Step 4

Then try to get your team to guess what’s on your card in 2 minutes. If they do, your teams gets a point.

Step 5

The team with the most points when the bag runs out wins.

A Great Gift Idea

This game also makes a great stocking stuffer or a unique hostess gift. Simply place your cards in a metal tin (like this one) and wrap it up with a pretty bow. If you’re feeling super ambitious, print out an extra copy of the card backs and attach it to the lid of the tin with Mod Podge.
