How To Play Christmas Tree Decorating Game
Purchase two small or medium sized artificial Christmas trees to be decorated. Collect all other tree decorations, such as metallic garlands, string of lights, and other ornaments for the tree. You can choose the color scheme and types of decorations that you want your tree to be adorned with.
When it’s time to celebrate the Christmas party, divide the guests into two teams. Ensure that the teams are split fairly. For example, if there are kids, divide them equally amongst the two teams. Likewise, decorative and crafty members too should be split evenly. In short, the teams should be fair as much as possible.
Announce the rules of the game to both the teams. Each team has to divide its members further into three groups, wherein each group will be performing one section of the Christmas tree decoration. As the whistle goes, the first group will run to the tree and hang the lights on the tree. They just do not have to throw the lights, instead they will have to neatly arrange and drape the lights. As they complete their task, they will come back and tag the second group.
Now, the second group moves to the tree and hangs the garland. Similar to the lights, this group will have to neatly hang the garland on the tree. Then, they will run back to the group and tag the third group. This final group will decorate the tree with the ornaments and trinkets so provided. As soon as they finish, they will run back to their group and yell out ‘Finished’. Make sure that you let the teams know that apart from the fastest time being counted, the neatness of the tree will also be taken into consideration in order to win the game.
Declare The Winners
As the judge of the game, you will have to see which team finished their task first while taking into account the best decorated Christmas tree. In case the fastest team has decorated their tree the best, then it is obvious that they have won the game. However, if the slower team has done a better job, you will have to decide on who should be declared champions. Hence, it is important that you emphasize the teams on giving their best in embellishing the tree.
