Reindeer Party Games
Teams must move across an area using
only pieces of poster board.
Cut large iceberg shapes from
paper about 10 x 12 inches each. Teams are given
one more iceberg them
the total number in their team. Tell the teams
they can only use the
given to them to get from one end of the
room to the other. Teams use the
pieces to move by having
players stand on the ice burgs all together. Then they take the back ice
burg and move it to the front of the line and so on. If a player steps
off the ice burg into the water they all go back and begin again.
Reindeer Snowball Stomp
Tie balloons that have been
half way blown up (white to look like snowballs) to a string and then to
the guests ankles. Then all the kids try to stomp and break each others
Roundup Up Game
Fun relay style game using ping pong
balls and a broom.
Color ping pong balls different colors for each team with a permanent
marker. Each team should have 3 balls. Divide guests into teams.
Give each team their ping pong balls and a small broom. One at a time the players
from each team must sweep all 3 ping pong balls to the other side of the
play area and back. Then they hand off the broom and balls to the
next person on their team. This game is more challenging and fun when played on a
Snowman Roll Up
Reindeer love to make
Snowmen! To play each team needs several rolls of toilet paper, scarves and hats.
Divide into teams of 2 or 3.
Each team gets two rolls of toilet paper.
Decide who in the team will be the snowman and who will do the
On “go” teams
wrap their snowman in the toilet paper.
When the rolls are all used they must put the hat and scarf on
their snowman and yell “finished!”.
The first team to finish wins.
Have enough paper so each guest gets a chance to be the snowman.
Crazy Snowball Race
Each player needs a small
plastic container and spoon and cotton balls.
Players put the plastic container on top of their head and
balance it there through the game.
The players must use the plastic spoon to get a cotton ball and
then place it in their container on top of their head.
The player with the most cotton balls in their container after 5
minutes wins! If they
spill their cotton balls they must start over.
Play a quick
practice round of about 1 minute so the kids can get the hang of the
Reindeer Prize Snowball
You will need: 2 – 3 rolls of clear packing tape, lots of small prizes
and wrapped candy. 2 dice
The object of the game is for the players to try and unwrap the snowball
enough to uncover a small prize or candy while it is their turn.
Before the party start to make a large round ball (snowball!) by
wrapping the packing tape around and around itself.
When you have a round base, about 2” diameter, start to add candy
and prizes one at a time as you wrap the tape around the ball.
When you are done the ball should be large and have candy and
prizes inside in layers.
During the game have kids sit in a circle.
Give the ball to one player and the dice to the player next to
them. On “go” the
player with the ball will try to unwrap the tape and get to a prize.
While the 1st player is trying to unwrap the ball the
player with the dice is rolling over and over trying to get doubles.
When the dice land on doubles the ball goes to the player that
was rolling the dice and they begin to try and unwrap a prize.
The dice are passed to the next person.
This is a fun and fast paced game!
Reindeer Party Activities
Make small bags of Reindeer food that the party
guests can take home and leave out on Christmas Eve to feed Santa's
Reindeer. Let guests help mix all the ingredients in a big
bowl. The ingredients can vary, but some good choices are
uncooked oats, apple jacks cereal (the green ones look like little
Christmas wreaths), green and red sugar crystals (the type you use to
decorate cakes). We don't suggest using glitter because it
might hurt the wildlife after you sprinkle it outside. Take
a big spoon and let everyone spoon some Reindeer food into a small ziploc bag. Let them take home their Reindeer food as a
Rudolph Treasure Hunt
Before the party hide white pompom balls around the party area.
Along with the white pompom balls hide 1 red pompom ball (Rudolph's
nose!). Ask the players to try and find all the pompom
balls. The guests who finds the red pompom gets a special small
prize. Have the guests go into another room and hide
the balls again - play several times. Kids love this game!
Christmas Scavenger Hunt
Have the party guests go on a
Christmas scavenger hunt.
Our Christmas scavenger hunt list has lots of fun items to find and is
free to print out.
