School or family party games

Here ´s a party game you can play with children or even parents! All you need are paper plates and pens for each player. The teacher  tells the players to put their paper plate on their head.Then the teacher will give a series of instructions for the players to draw on their paper plates (that are on their heads) without looking.

  • Here are the instructions:

1. Draw a line for a floor.

2. Draw a Christmas Tree.  Add decorations if you feel so inclined.

3. Draw a star on top of your tree.

4. Draw a fireplace with a mantel next to the tree.

5. Draw a stocking hanging from the mantel of your fireplace.

6. Draw a present below the tree.

  • After the six steps have been given, let everyone look at their masterpieces. Get ready for a serious giggle fest.Then have players count up how many points they received by following this rubric:

1. 2 points if the tree touches the floor.

2. 2 points if your stocking is touching your mantel.

3. 1 point if your star touches your tree.

4. 1 point if your star is above your tree.

5. 1 point for every Christmas ornament ball that is ON your tree, etc.

6. 1 point if your fireplace doesn’t touch the tree

7. 1 point if you actually drew something decorative on your stocking (or something cute, like a tiny kitten peeking out).

8. 2 points if your present is under your tree.
