Christmas activities are one of my favorite entertaining essentials to occupy guests while I’m putting the finishing touches on Christmas brunch or dinner. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite Christmas activities – a Christmas word search!

Christmas games can fit seamlessly into table setting, too! They’re the perfect addition to a place setting on top of the napkin. Don’t forget to leave plenty of pens or pencils as well!

Christmas Games for Kids

I tested this printable Christmas word search with our 3 girls. It was challenging enough for our almost 9 year old and even our 5 year old was able to find several of the words. Word searches make great Christmas activities for kids of all ages!

You can make so many Christmas games with these little place cards. Some ideas include:

  • Scramble kids’ names so they can have fun finding their seats
  • Rather than using guests’ names, give clues to whose place setting it is – it’s a fun way to share little known facts about one another or to help guests get to know one another
  • Inside the place card, have guests share what their greatest gift of 2018 was – you can have them read them aloud between dinner and dessert while you’re clearing the table or putting the finishing touches on dessert
