Did you know there is such a thing as Christmas Gift Bow Games? I haven’t seen a board game about it yet.
However, It hasn’t stopped me from creating DIY versions.
If you are getting ready to celebrate Christmas in July or throwing a holiday party, or student party at school.
This game works perfectly!
First, start with this bow game it is REALLY fun and the whole family loved it.
What is Pass the Bow Party Game
Generally, Pass the Bow Party game is played with guests of 6 or more.
For example, the more players the merrier!
The game is a twist to the classic hot potato game.
Just like in the classic game you’ll keep passing the bow.
Yet, you won’t want to be caught holding the bow when the Christmas music stops or you are out.
How to Play Pass the Bow
First, you will need to do create a circle of players.
Next, designate one person to be the host of the game and put them in charge of the timer or boom box!
Meanwhile, the other players in the circle will have a starting player with a Christmas bow in their hands.
➡️ This size here works the best for this particular game!
After that, ask the players to pass the bow to the player on the right side of them and each participant will keep passing the bow.
As a matter of fact, they’ll continue to pass the bow until Jingle Bells (or another Christmas song) stops.
Whichever player is caught holding the Christmas bow is out.
For example, you will continue to play “Pass the Bow” until there is one remaining player.
The last standing player will win the game and have bragging rights, lol!
If you’re celebrating Christmas in July and don’t have a themed bow. No problem, use this FREE printable.
I recommend using cardstock to print, cut it out, and pass this around to the group. It will make this game FREE!
Good Luck and HAVE FUN!

LEVEL UP PARTY GAME
Another take away from this fun activity is put another spin on it.
That’s what is fun about the holidays. It’s adding in more fun!
This time, have a variety of gift bows and allow each kid to pick a colorful gift bow.
For example, if you grab a bag of bows or a tube of them. Typically you will find this assortment in the bunch.
If you have a group of students and each child picks their favorite color of bow.
Before the music begins pick a color to be out. For example, the every child holding the red bows will be out. Then, the second round all of the green. The third, all of the silver, and lastly, then all of the gold.
You could do this by flipping a coin or announcing it after all of the bows are picked.
When the music stops all of the children holding the “red bows” will be eliminated.
It’s just another fun way to pass time and have fun at the party!
We hope you enjoyed this cute game idea for the kids!
