Christmas Mayhem

Christmas Mayhem is a fun, unique game to play with your kids! To play, just have the player select a “character” card and a “scene” card. That player then chooses a helper “elf” to assist them with acting out the scene. Once everyone has had a turn, the family can vote on their favorite scene! Whether you’re Ebenezer Scrooge going to the sleigh DMV or Santa Claus interviewing the Grinch, you’re sure to have a hoot with loved ones playing Christmas Mayhem.

Christmas Heads Up!

Heads Up! Is such a classic kids game — put a fun Christmas spin on it by playing holiday heads up with your family. Have each player pick a card without looking and hold the card up to their forehead. Other players have to try to act out their card without speaking — see who can guess their player first!

Christmas Charades

Christmas Charades is another super fun game to print out and play with your kids. Just print out and cut up the prompts ahead of time, place them in a bowl, and have each family member take turns picking a prompt and acting it out without speaking. Try dividing your family into teams and see which team can guess more prompts in a set amount of time!

DIY Table Revamp - Guest Post

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons.
