Fun Christmas Party Games for the Ugly Sweater Set

Fun Christmas Party Games for the Ugly Sweater Set

The holidays are a time for family, friends, and of course, epic ugly sweater parties! But keeping the little ones entertained amidst the tinsel and twinkle lights can be a challenge. Fear not, merrymakers! This year, ditch the generic party games and embrace the festive spirit with these fun, ugly sweater-themed activities designed to keep your pint-sized guests giggling.

Deck the Halls

 1.Ugly Sweater Relay Race

Divide the kiddos into teams and provide a basket full of festive accessories like jingle bells, pom-poms, tinsel, and pipe cleaners. Each team member must race across the room, grab an accessory, and pin it to their teammate’s sweater before tagging the next person. The first team to finish with the most outrageously decorated sweater wins!

 2.Pin the Pom-Pom on the Snowman

Give the classic party game a festive twist! Create a large outline of a snowman on a piece of fabric or butcher paper. Cut out different colored pom-poms and blindfold the children, one at a time. Have them spin around a few times and then try to stick the pom-pom on the snowman’s “ugly sweater.” The closest pom-pom wins a prize!

Sweater Scavenger Hunt:

Sweater Scavenger Hunt

Create a scavenger hunt list with items commonly found on ugly sweaters. This could include things like a snowflake pin, a pair of mismatched socks, a string of miniature lights, or a candy cane sewn onto the sweater. Hide these items around the party space and let the kids loose! The first one to find all the items on the list wins a small prize or bragging rights.

Ugly Sweater Charades:

This classic game gets a festive makeover! Instead of acting out movies or phrases, have the children act out different holiday symbols or characters typically found on ugly sweaters. Think Santa Claus, reindeer, snowmen, candy canes, or even gingerbread houses! The team that guesses the most characters correctly wins.

Ugly Sweater Design Challenge:

Let the kids unleash their inner fashionistas! Set them up with plain white t-shirts, fabric markers, and a variety of craft supplies like felt, yarn, and buttons. Challenge them to design their dream ugly sweater. They can draw on the t-shirts or use the craft supplies to create appliques. Award prizes for the most creative, funniest, or most “outrageously ugly” design.

Bonus Round: Ugly Sweater Fashion Show:

Bonus Round: Ugly Sweater Fashion Show

If your party has an “ugly sweater contest” for adults, why not include the kids? After the design challenge, organize a mini fashion show where the kids can strut their stuff in their DIY creations. Hand out small prizes for different categories like “Most Festive,” “Most Mismatched,” or “The One That Made Grandma Laugh the Hardest!”

Pro Tip: Prepare a little goodie bag for each child filled with candy canes, stickers, small holiday toys, or even miniature candy sweater ornaments!

Crafting Memories, Not Just Sweaters:

These games are just a starting point! Use your imagination and tailor the activities to the age and interests of your guests. The most important thing is to create a fun and festive atmosphere where kids can celebrate the holidays, express their creativity, and make lasting memories with their friends. So, get ready for some holiday hilarity, unleash the ugly sweater spirit, and prepare for a Christmas party your little ones won’t forget!
