Today I’m sharing a fun Christmas gift hack idea pertaining to gift giving. A guessing game AND gift wrapping idea in one! The hack- the kids don’t know which presents are theirs, so you can place it under the tree before Christmas if you want to…
How to Prep:
The idea is to choose a Christmas character for each child/person, but they must not know which one they are. (We are only doing gifts for the children this year, but it includes the cousins and friends as well, so I added 8 characters to the printables.)
Wrap the gifts in plain wrapping paper(I opted for brown paper since it is much more environmentally friendly) and attach the specific character gift tag. Do not write names on the tags. Use the printable page that says “Your copy” to keep track of which character you assigned to a person.
How to play:
The day you give out the presents(we do it on Christmas Eve with the family. Presents from Father Christmas only comes on Christmas Day) or place it under the tree on Christmas morning, each person gets to hold his/her card up to his/her forehead and play the Who am I? game.
The game works as follows: Take turns giving out the character cards, BUT, they must NOT look at the card(Tip: print it on cardboard to avoid see-through pictures and perhaps place it in envelopes). The person with the card must ask questions to guess the character, but only questions with Yes and No answers. If he guesses right, he /she can go search for his presents with that particular tag. Everyone waits until all guessed their character and found their presents before opening it together.
This makes gift opening a fun activity and teaches a bit of patience too.
Have fun this Christmas! Hope you will enjoy this game and use this Christmas hack!
