Teaching Games: Christmas Pictionary

Contributed by: Phil Trotter, Diocese of Christchurch

christmaspictionarySTeams gather round a table with 10 pieces of paper each.

In turn, a person from each team is shown one of the Christmas phrases below (or make up others) and has to draw it while the rest of their team try and guess what the phrase is.

With larger groups use two whiteboards back to back with two teams facing one whiteboard each.

  • No room at the inn
  • Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
  • Away in a Manger
  • Three Wise Men
  • Baby Jesus
  • Jingle Bells
