Office parties will never be exciting without games, especially during Christmas season. Besides, they’re an awesome way to break the ice and encourage employees to mingle with their colleagues. Here are a few office game ideas that will surely liven up a party.
Office Game Concepts to Try
1. Pin Rudolph’s Red Nose
– A printout or drawing of Rudolph
– Pieces of round red paper
– Double adhesive tape
This game is a fun office Christmas party amusement that will crack up everyone. To begin, choose five participants and give each one a reindeer’s nose (made from paper cut-out). Then, blindfold and spin them 10 times. After these, tell them to pin the nose on Rudolph. Finally, whoever among them pins the red nose closest to where it should win.
2. Fill the Christmas Stocking
– Clean socks
Five or more participants in each team will race through the obstacles to fill their team’s hanging stocking with a spoonful of wrapped candies. Then, the first team to fill the sock wins.
3. Snowman Wrapping Game
– Toilet papers
Form two teams of five persons each. Then, instruct the players to wrap their “snowman” in toilet paper. The first or rather the best group to wrap and decorate the snowman will get the prize.
4. Human Christmas Tree
– Green crepe paper
– Ornaments or any Christmas decor each team can find
Members of three teams will wrap their human Christmas tree in green crepe paper and decorate him/her with ornaments or anything they can find. Then, in the end, the team with the best decorated human Christmas tree wins.
5. Snowman Building Contest
Have three teams take part, and then the group that builds the most unique snowman in the shortest span of time wins.
6. Family Feud: Christmas Special
This should be homemade, Christmas-themed after the popular game show, “Family Feud.”
7. Ornament on a Spoon
– Round ornaments
Instead of balancing an egg, three team participants will balance a Christmas tree ornament on a spoon. The first team to complete the rounds while running around the obstacle, with the ornament still on their spoon, wins.
8. Santa Limbo
– Limbo stick
Have five participants do the limbo, but add a twist by putting a “Santa belly” under their shirt using a pillow. Further, to pick the winner, the only person who makes it through the last round without his/her belly touching the limbo stick wins.
9. Blindfold Christmas Drawing
Divide 10 players into pairs. Then, the partner with the blindfold in each pair will draw a Christmas tree on a paper while his/her partner gives or tells him/her the directions. The Christmas tree should rather have ornaments and a star. Finally, the pair that draws the best Christmas tree will get the prize.
10. Ornament Guess
