Playing Family Christmas games for zoom is a great way to keep your family connected this festive season. This Christmas is going to be very different for a lot of people, us included and we are going to have to adapt our Christmas Eve party to a virtual one over zoom.
Lots of our standard Kids Christmas Party Games and Family Christmas Party Games can be adapted to be played virtually over zoom. The one thing they have in common is that there needs to be a virtual quiz master!
To make it easier for you I have pulled together some free Family Christmas Games Printables perfect for Zoom.
10 Family Christmas Games for Zoom
Christmas Scavenger Hunt
This is always a lot of fun for everyone involved and perfect for a long distanced zoom games night. There are loads of different ways to play you can simply pick a colour that you want people to find something off, set a timer and then everyone goes and brings back something blue for example or you can choose specific Christmas items.
I think it works best when you pick a selection of different things.
Hum That Christmas Tune
You give one person in each team a list of songs and carols and then their team have 60 or 90 seconds to guess as many as possible. They can pass and if the person goes through all their songs they can go back to the passed ones.
The classic After Eight mint game can still be loved and enjoyed via Zoom. Balance an After Eight mint on the top of your forehead and without using anything but your face, try to manoeuvre the mint into your mouth. First one to get the mint to their mouth wins.
This is our Christmas version of around the world (where you pick a country from each letter of the alphabet). You start one team with A and then it swaps to the other tea and they have to think of a Christmas item beginning with that letter ie A = Angel Gabriel, B = Bauble…….

Draw a Christmas Movie
Each team nominates a person to draw and then the quiz master gives them a list of movies and then just like pictomary the nominated “artist” has to draw the movie and the team have to guess what it is. They can not speak and they have a pre agreed amount of time to draw it.
If their team doesn’t get it right, then it is passed over to the other team.
Paper plate drawing
Each player holds a paper plate on top of their head, a pen for drawing and listens carefully to the instructions given. The paper plate must not come off their head until the quiz master says they are finished.
You then get each player to draw on the paper plate on their head
- Draw a Christmas tree.
- with a star on the top.
- add lights to the tree.
- Then draw three gifts under the tree.
- Finally, draw some baubles on the tree.
Christmas Would you Rather..
We love this and try and make it as random as possible and Christmas related, for example, would you rather have reindeer hooves for feet or elves ears?
Simply download the free-to-use website Bingo Maker and create a virtual game with as many players as you want – it is free to make your first game.
Christmas Movie Trivia Quiz
The Christmas Movie Trivia Quiz See who watches (and pays attention) to the most Christmas movies out of your entire Zoom call — you may be surprised by the results. You can make it simple such as which team can name the most movies with Christmas in the title in 60 seconds or set an actual quiz about movies.
