I’m working on my holiday games and remembered a fun Christmas Game Bag Idea for Kids that’s Free!
What if I told you that you could easily find things around the house and turn them into free holiday activities!
It sure sounds like a great idea to me!
Christmas Bag Game Idea
As a mom and foster mom, I’m always searching for ways to reuse, recycle, and save.
That’s where this Christmas bag game idea came from and now I’m happy to share it with you and your family too!
What I used in my mystery bags
- Gift Bows
- Jingle Bell (Check the price on Amazon here!)
- Plastic Ornament
- Christmas card
- Santa Claus
- Christmas lights (I used this type of lights)
What you will need is brown paper bags to put the items inside of, therefore, it’s like surprise bags.
After that, you’ll need to place each item in different bags.
For example, the gift bow in a bag, the jingle bell in another, and so on.
This makes it much easier for the kids to have to pull the item out and feel the item and try to guess what it is without seeing it.
However, if you do have preschool-age children playing you may want them to see the objects ahead of time so they’ll know exactly what they’re looking for when feeling the object.
As far as the not so little children you can blindfold each of them as they play to add excitement to the game.
Also, you can have the other children that are not participating at the time wait in another room. This way they will not see the items in each bag before it is their turn.
I suggest timing the children and see who could guess the items the fastest.
As well as, allowing them to touch and feel the items. My children had fun shaking the jingle bell.
However, it’s fun to use a pinecone too.
It sure was a fast giveaway to what item it was and they loved that part!
Lastly, if you need more holiday games we have them and love playing ones that don’t cost a fortune!
For example, this one is one of my favorites!
