Hello again! Are you hanging in there with all this Christmas inspiration coming your way? Today is another fun day because we are talking holiday games!

My game is one that can actually be played at baby showers and wedding showers etc… and it is ALWAYS a big hit! Even the men get involved, mostly because they think they can do better, but they can’t! NOPE!

My mother introduced this game to me and we have played it with friends ever since. So if you are up for something a little different check out my version of a fun Christmas Party Game!

My daughter and I also made a video and we had a blast! To watch it go here or scroll further down! 

What you need:

  • Large bowl
  • Uncooked rice (4-5 cups or more depending on the size of the bowl)
  • Tiny safety pins (Size 00)
  • Bandana or blindfold
  • Timer or stopwatch

 I like to use a large glass bowl, but you can use what you have on hand.

1 5 Christmas Party Game

You want a handful of the smallest safety pins, size 00 (the ones pictured below are still too big, but it’s what I could find since our move… yes, we are still unpacking, UGH!)

2 5 Christmas Party Game

I typically add double this amount of pins.

So what you do is blindfold the player, set your timer to 30 seconds and see who can get the most pins out of the rice!

The winner gets a Christmas gift/surprise. And if you have a tie, then you go to sudden death where you have them go again (separately) and this time find as many in 20 seconds… and so on…

The rice is still salvageable. If you don’t wash your rice with warm water before you cook it, you should be. Regardless of whether or not we play this game, I always wash my rice, plus the heat from the cooking kills any bacteria – just be sure to remove the pins first! ?

And that is basically all there is to it! Easy peasy, for a whole lot of fun! You won’t believe how competitive everyone will get! It’s hilarious!
