Christmas Minute-to-Win-it Competition!

If you are looking for a fun Christmas party game idea, I would check out doing a Christmas Minute-to-Win-it party.  I have seen some ideas for Minute-to-Win-it game nights on Pinterest (I believe that is where I found this blog a while back). It looked like a lot of fun, but at the time we were just in a small apartment so I put the idea on hold. Once we were in our small house, I wondered if we still had enough room to pull this off. So we invited some family over to try it out. It was so much fun!


With my husband’s help we were able to show clips of what the challenge was on our TV for each game just like on the show. I think that worked well, as a visual can be helpful with some of these games. You can find most of the instructions by Goggling them or checking on YouTube. Here is a sample of some of the games we did:



You will need:

  • Candy canes
  • 8 nuts


“Face the Gingerbread Man”

You will need:

  • Gingerbread cookies*

*These were the hardest things for us to find. We finally ended up finding some and just bought enough for everyone to have one gingerbread cookie. We used regular cookies if the gingerbread man one broke.


“Merry Fishmas”

You will need:

  • Candy canes (4 small and one regular)
  • Chopsticks
  • String


“Stack Attack”

You will need:

  • 36 red cups


“Christmas Balls”

You will need:

  • A wrapped empty gift box
  • One round ornament


“Christmas Cliffhanger”

You will need:

  • 10 Christmas cards
  • A table


“Snowball Toss”

You will need:

  • Marshmallows
  • Bucket
  • Christmas wreath


Have fun planning your party!
