Christmas Games For Seniors!
Christmas Games For Your Nursing Home Christmas Party!
Pin the Nose on Rudolph
Create a Rudolph with some craft materials or clip art and tape it on the wall. You can either purchase red circle stickers or create red circles with the computer and print them out. Attach tape on the back of each homemade red nose for each senior’s turn. Play just like you would for pin the tail on the donkey!
Guess the Christmas Cookie
Have the senior’s bake a few different batches of cookies: chocolate chip, snicker doodles, oatmeal raisin, and chocolate are some ideas. Be sure to have plenty for everyone! When the game begins, have a holiday tin can to hide a cookie in. Without the senior’s seeing, place a cookie in the tin can and have a blindfolded senior smell the cookie to see if he can guess what it is. Make sure someone is keeping score! If they can't guess by smell, taste is the last try! Each senior should be able to eat his game cookie!
Guessing Game: Christmas Candy Jar
Using a holiday plastic cookie or candy jar (inexpensive from a dollar or thrift store), fill it with some colourful holiday goodies like holiday colored M&Ms, peppermints, gum drops, etc. Display the jar wherever the party is going to be held and add a sign that the senior’s can decorate explaining the game. "Guess how many candies are in this jar, and win it!"
First make 2-4 teams.
Then give each team a pair of pantyhose and one/two balloons to each person on the team. Each team should have eight balloons. When you say "go", the teams will try to make reindeer antlers by blowing up the balloons and then stuffing them into the pantyhose. Then one team member wears the "antlers" and sings the first verse of "Rudolph, the red nose reindeer".
The first one to do this wins for their team.
