Game of the Month from Fun Attic: Jingle Bell Relay
Required: Bells and various props
Players: Small to medium groups
Category: Relay Games
You will need about 6-8 1" round bells per team along with various props at each station. Set up an obstacle course for the players. The course could be decorated for the holiday season. They might have to jump over holiday garland, step through a holiday ornament mine field (plastic ornaments), kiss a picture of Santa (or some other holiday figure) hanging under mistletoe, stack holiday cups and plates on a table and then put them back in place for the next person, carry a stack of wrapped packages from one point to another and back, wrap a package, at one station they might sing "I wish you a Merry Christmas" three times, and eat a Christmas cookie. Get creative and come up with other ideas of your own. Then divide into two teams and give each team 6-8 bells. Each person on the team will have to go through the course carrying all the bells (in their hands, not their pockets or mouths). If they drop a bell they have to go back to get it. The bells can be set down at a station if needed to complete the task. The first team to finish wins.
