Fun Christmas Party Game

A Christmas party game idea that is relatively new, but "oh so hot!" is playing games based on the hit t.v. show "Minute to Win It."

On this show, contestants have to accomplish a crazy task within 60 seconds to win.

Here are some of my favorites...including a few original ideas...!

These games can be played by multiple people at the same time or as teams.

For all games you'll need a 60 second timer.

Marshmallow Stack



The Game:

Stack as many marshmallows as possible within one minute.

Christmas Ball


One Ornament and one empty gift box per person, target area

The Game:

Move a tree ornament across the floor and into a target area by fanning it with an empty gift box within one minute.

Christmas Cliffhanger


Table, 10 Christmas Cards

The Game:

Set up 10 Christmas Cards so they are standing on a table. Try to blow them across the table and get one to hang over the edge of the table before a minute is up.
