If you’re looking for an un-bell-ievably fun Christmas game to play, we’ve got just the thing! This 🎶Do You Hear What I Hear?!🎶 Jingle Bells Christmas Game can be easily modified to suit children or adults!
Jingle Bells Christmas Game
The SET UP
One person places a varying number of bells in (multiple) boxes.
Seal or wrap the boxes (So there’s no sneaky-peeking before Christmas.🎅)
Mark the boxes so that they are uniquely identified. (Choose letters, numbers – or the Elves favorite way, reindeer names😂)
You may play this game as individuals or teams.
Shake the boxes and determine the proper order of bells, least to most!
For young children: Keep the game simple with a small handful of boxes and a large difference of bells between each box. Example, 1, 3, 6…
For adults: To make the game more challenging, add more boxes to the line-up and keep the difference of bells in each closer together. For example, 5, 6, 9, 10. Mixing bells of different sizes will also add a varying degree of difficulty as it changes the weight and sound!
You may also choose to time this game to determine a winner.
My family played this game a few years ago and we pitted the men and women against each other! Each team took a turn going in to the other room (so as not to give away our strategies or answer!) We all had to laugh … the women went by “feeling and intuition” while the men “logically” deduced the order.
In the end both teams guessed the correct order and by a mere few seconds difference of time! I’ll leave the winning team a mystery.😂
Whether you prefer “minute-to-win-it” styled games or reindeer games … this “Do You Hear What I Hear Jingle Bells Game” is sure to b-ring in memories you’ll cherish for years to come!
Oh What Christmas Fun!
