Supplies: Ability to wink and say Ho!Ho!Ho!
Santa is hiding and Rudolph is here to find him. Borrowing from the classic winking murder game, Santa winks at people and when someone gets winked at they say Ho Ho Ho! Will Rudolph discover who Santa is before the next Ho Ho Ho!
This is a small group game / activity that works best with 10 or fewer people and kids 8 and older.
Rudolph is waiting for Santa so that all the children’s presents can be delivered. He needs to find Santa, who is hiding.
Have all the kids sit in a circle. One child is selected to be Rudolph and leaves the room, while Rudolph is out of the room Santa is randomly selected. One person from the circle is elected to be the “Santa”, and then “Rudolph” is called back to stand in the circle.
Once Rudolph returns Santa can start winking at people in the circle. Anyone who sees that they have been winked at lets out a loud, “HO! HO! HO! – Merry Christmas. Once Rudolph identifies Santa, you start again.
