Pin the nose on Rudolf - Christmas Games

It's that time of year when the excitement of Christmas is beginning to ware off. The kids have played/broken their new toys and you're likely to be hearing the early sounds of boredom kicking in. Well if it's not too late, here are a couple of Christmas games to help ensure it's Christmas smiles all round.

First up is 'Pin the Nose on Rudolf'. This game is exactly the same as Pin the Tail on the Donkey' but using a different animal and part of the anatomy instead.

How do we play it?
  • Get yourself armed with an old piece of cardboard, some pens and paint, and get the kids drawing a big picture of a reindeer's head. The easiest way is to use your hands as the outline for the reindeer's antlers. Once this is all coloured in, stick it on the wall at the right height for the kids to use.
  • Next get the kids to make a large cardboard red Rudolf nose and stick some Blue Tac on the back.
  • Now you're ready to play. The first person to go is blindfolded, spun around three times and gently propelled towards the reindeer picture with the nose in their hand. They then have to try to stick the nose in the right place. Everyone takes it in turn to have a go and the person who gets the closest wins.
