We play them at Christmas time with a festive twist on all of our old favorites, ‘face the cookie’ turns into ‘face the gingerbread man’, the traditional ‘egg and spoon race’ becomes the seasonal ‘snowball and spoon race’, so on and so forth.

Charades is such a fun game too, and so easy to prepare and play. It can be played by any number of people, just about anywhere.
