This fun Who Am I? game features a range of well known characters from Christmas stories, books and movies.
The printable set of game cards includes a range of 32 Christmas characters from traditional holiday stories, beloved Christmas books and popular Christmas movies. If there are characters your children are unfamiliar with, simply remove those cards from the game before beginning play. I have also included a page of blank cards so that you can add any of your own family’s favourite holiday characters.
Christmas Who Am I? Guessing Game
For 2 or more players.
You will need:
- A loop of elastic to fit around each player’s head
- A set of character cards (see below), printed onto photo paper or cardstock and laminated for durability
1. Shuffle the cards and place them on a stack face down in the middle of the table.
2. Each player selects a card from the stack and tucks it into their elastic headband (facing outwards) without looking at it. Now everyone can see which card each player has, except their own.
3. Starting with the youngest player and proceeding clockwise around the table, take turns to ask one question about the character card on your head as you try to figure out which character is featured on your card. For example, players might ask – am I male or female? Am I a character in a movie? Am I human? Do I have a red nose? etc
The other players answer with yes or no.
4. When a player feels confident that they can identify their character, they may take a guess on their turn. The first person to identify their character is the winner of that round. The other players can then keep taking turns to ask questions about their card until all characters have been identified.
5. Once a round is complete, players each choose a new card from the pile and start play again.
6. The player who is the first to correctly identify five characters is the winner.
