25+ Free Printable Christmas Games & Activities for Kids

A great collection of free printable Christmas games & activities to keep your kids entertained the whole month of December!

The holiday season is upon us!  And it’s time to play a few free printable Christmas games together!

It’s also time to get ready to keep kids from snooping in the closets or under the tree 🙂

Do you have a snooper? 

My oldest was great – he never wanted to know what gifts he would get on Christmas morning.  My youngest — a whole different story!

25 Free Printable Christmas Games & Activities

She’s one of those ‘I’m going to pretend I’m not snooping while I try to gather clues about both my gifts AND everyone else’s’.  She keeps us on our toes during the holidays 🙂

I get it — It’s hard for kids to contain all that excitement — wrapped gifts in arms’ reach, the promise of a school holiday party, family coming — I totally understand. 

Which is why having some fun activities to do each day helps kids to enjoy the weeks leading up to Christmas.  Ideas like counting down the days to Christmas and finding ways to slow down and enjoy the season together are a big deal around our house.

Truth be told, the snooping has even gotten better since these small surprise activities have started.  In addition to the free printable activities, I also love having a few of these ideas on hand (affiliate links are included so you can check them out too!):

  • Christmas Mad Libs are super fun to do during dinner!
  • fun coloring sheets with a set of colored pencils is a great idea for all ages to enjoy
  • a wrapped Christmas book hiding under the tree means a ‘surprise’ storytime
  • and a fun deck of Rudolph playing cards is perfect for a quick game of Go Fish or Crazy 8’s!

Plus these totally fun & free printable Christmas games and activities which are perfect for kids of all ages! 

You can even wrap them so the kids have something to unwrap each day (hopefully it keeps them busy enough that they won’t have time to snoop 😉
