Since Christmas is just around the corner, your goal is to make it an unforgettable experience for everyone, including the teenagers. Usually teenagers don't like to interact with Christmas activities and just windup getting bored throughout the entire party. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to help make your Christmas party highly enjoyable for everyone.
Christmas isn't just about exchanging gifts or reuniting with family and friends, as it is also all about having fun and bonding with those you love. Teens and Christmas fun can be achieved when you know exactly what type of activities to have for your party.
How to make Christmas visiting fun for teens
- Introduce Yourselves
Before any party can become enjoyable, you need to have everyone introduce themselves with each other. Simply have all the guests talk about themselves for at least 30 seconds so that everyone knows a little something about each other. Have each person talk about their parents and why they love the holidays, as you most likely invited distant relatives to your party.
- Create Fun Games
Without any fun games and activities, your Christmas party will just be talking and eating. Though that isn't all that bad, it can be very boring for most people, especially teenagers. Since you want your teenage guests to enjoy your party, you need to make sure that you have lots of fun games so that everyone is interacting with each other and starting to feel comfortable.
Top Teen Games For Christmas
- Christmas Movie Guessing
Christmas movie guessing is a very fun game which involves playing a scene of a Christmas movie and have representatives of two different teams guessing the movie. You can have a buzzer, time limit, and a prize for the team winner of this game. Your guests will find this game to be very enjoyable, but you just need to make sure that you plan what movie clips to show before hand so at least you are prepared.
- Blindfold Food Tasting
Blindfold food tasting is also a fun game that can be easily done on the spot. Basically, separate people into two different teams, then have one from each group taste a certain dish. Those who aren't eating the dish can coach the person who is, but they can't give any major hints regarding the food. When it comes to food, everyone will want to join in, but make sure there is a small prize to get everyone into the 'competitive spirit'.
- Mindless Christmas Drawings
Christmas drawing is also very good fun, as it will get everyone to show their artistic side. Basically, all you need to do is split people into to different teams, then have the best artists to be the 'head drawers' of each group. Then, the host of the party will show them a Christmas item which they will then need to draw in less than a minute. After that, they will simply pass that drawing to their group member who is in front of them. The twist is that no one else in the group will know anything about what the drawing is. Make sure the rest of the team members don't see the item, as in the end, the least artistic person will have to guess what the drawing is after all of the failed drawing attempts their team members have made.
