Merry "Christmitts" Game

This is a fun party game for your
upcoming Christmas get-togethers!

You will need:
  • two oven mitts (dollar store)
  • a plate or pie tin
  • one die to roll
  • a gift (wrapped and wrapped and wrapped)*

*Double wrap your gift (I used a Life Savers candy book).  Put it in a box and wrap it again.  Put it in a bigger box and wrap it again.  Do this four or five times (until you run out of boxes or patience).


1)  With everyone sitting in a circle, have the youngest player pick a number between one and six (that will be the number that people are trying to get).

2)  Pass the plate and the die and have everyone roll until they hit the number.  The first person to roll the chosen number puts on the oven mitts and starts opening the present.

3)  As soon as someone else rolls the chosen number, they get the present and the mitts and take over unwrapping the present.

4)  This continues until someone completely unwraps the actual present.  That person is the winner!

Note:  This game can be used at any time of year...
I'm also planning to use it on New Year's Eve,

What do you call an elf who steals gift wrap from
the rich to give to the poor?

That would be...

Ribbon Hood!


Let me know if you try Merry Christmitts!

(Note:  This is a very "Santa-mental" time of year for me...)



  1. Karen, I just found this game on Pinterest. I love it, and am pinning it for next year when we host Christmas at our home! :)

  2. Thanks for visiting! This is by far my most popular pin! 😀

  3. We did this last year and plan on doing it New Year's Eve. We added a santa hat also. Was so fun.
