Christmas Ornament Guess
Supplies: Number of ornaments on the tree, Pen and paper, box / container for guess submissions

The Christmas ornament guessing game requires some prep work before you decorate the tree as you will need to count your ornaments before you place them on the tree. The ornament guess game is a derivative of a candy guessing game, where guests try to guess how many candies are in a jar. The holiday party game is perfect for the classroom, group event, dinner party and the office as a interesting passive game that does not disrupt a party.
