1. Download and Print the File
Once you have the “Roll a Tree” Christmas Game Printable, print it on white cardstock. When printing, make sure to print full size (or 100% to scale) and choose the highest print quality in order to maximize color.
Note: Print 1 card (or game board) per child. The Christmas Game download includes 2 cards per page.
2. Cut out the Game Boards
Next, cut out the game cards, one per child. For projects like this, I love a guillotine-style paper cutter. It makes cutting straight edges so simple! However, if you don’t have a paper cutter, scissors will work just fine.
3. Play “Roll a Tree”
Grab a die for each child, and a handful of M&Ms. Simple rules — printed directly on the card — make this game suitable for both younger and older kids. Each time the child rolls a die, they place an M&M on a space with the corresponding color.
For example: If the child rolls a 5, they can place a blue M&M on one of the blue ornaments hanging from the Christmas Tree.
Creative Ideas for a Christmas Game Printable
This fun little game is perfect as a boredom buster, party game, or stocking stuffer. Here are a few of my favorite ideas:
- Laminate the “Roll a Tree” Game Card and place it in a plastic baggie with M&Ms and a die. Tuck it in your purse for the Christmas Season, and pull it out when the kids are bored (at dinners, in lines, or in the car!).
- Throwing a Christmas Dinner Party? Set the kids table for game-playing fun! The centerpiece can be bowls of M&Ms and colorful dice, while each place setting can include the “Roll a Tree” printable Christmas Game.
- Rather than filling stockings with chintzy toys, pack it full of Christmas games! Then, spend Christmas day playing games as a family. (P.S. Need inspiration?! Check out this list of family-friendly Christmas Games, like the Christmas Scavenger Hunt and Charades Game, shown below).
