Christmas game ideas needed........

On Christmas Day, we will have DD22, her BF22, DD19 and me. All day long, just the 4 of us. I don't want us to end up bored and on our phones, so I'm coming up with fun things to do throughout the day.

So far, (aside from the normal meals and gift-opening) there will be:

~ a gingerbread assembly/decorating contest (DD22 is getting a gingerbread farm, her BF is getting a train, and DD19 is getting a castle)

~ a scavenger hunt for stockings (I NEED HELP WITH CLUES!!)

~ Christmas cookie decorating

~ Playing any of the board games they'll be receiving

~ the Saran Wrap game???

~ more ideas please! THANKS!

You probably wonít need all those games, but I want to come to your house.

Left, right, center...each person needs three $1.00 bills. Winner gets all. You can get the dice at most stores like Target.

Hide and go seek...seriously my DDs played this way into adulthood. The fun part is to jump out at someone.

We did the Saran Wrap ball one year and it was a big hit, calmer than most, but still fun.

There’s no place to hide in my condo....which is good because I startle easily.

We love Minute to win it games too. Favorites are Face the cookie (move a cookie from forehead to mouth using only facial movements) and Jingle in the trunk (shake jingle bells out of a Kleenex box attached around your bootie/waist with a belt) Thereís also stacking Solo cups, canít remember the name. They are a blast, especially if you play the game show timer countdown while youíre playing to ramp up the intensity!

We like playing Who am I?

You write on small slips of paper famous people or characters, tape one on someoneís pack and they get twenty yes or no questions to guess who they are.

I bought a boxed set last year but you could make your own. They have to go into the surrounding area and take photos of themselves in front of specific things (a Grinch decoration, holiday lights on a fence, etc.).

Our family may be weird, but we've enjoyed sitting around and chatting while playing with legos and adult coloring books.
