These party ideas are great for Christmas Eve, for Christmas in July party games ideas, and the best Christmas party ideas for teens! Finally! Teen Christmas party ideas that aren’t boring!

Here are fun ideas for family Christmas and activities for teenage groups…

Christmas Truth Or Dare

Christmas truth or dare is a great game that can be played by teenagers and is a fun teen party idea. It is very simple and not should take more than 20 minutes to play.

The group divides into two teams, each player takes a turn answering a question from the person who decided their fate (or dared them to do something).

You can let them come up with their own questions or provide Christmas-related truth or dare questions for this Christmas party games teens idea.

For a unique take on a holiday truth or dare game, play TRUTH, DARE, OR ZITS (Hysterical Christmas party games for teens or even middle school Christmas party ideas! We’re also a big fan of board games in our house!)

Holiday TikTok Challenges

Your kids will be on social media part of the time during the party, so why not turn it into part of the party with fun teenager Christmas photo ideas and videos?

Set up a TikTok Challenge station and photograph self stations, complete with:

Then, they can complete some teen TikTok challenges or make up their own dances to post on social media with Christmas music.

Indoor Snowball Fight

An indoor snowball fight is something almost all teens will love!

Grab a pack of indoor snowballs, divide them into teams, and let them go at it (in the basement or a large room is best).

You can also create an obstacle course where they have to complete different activities at various holiday theme stations.

For example, knock down the cookie cutters, hit the nose of Rudolph, etc.

Fun for active teenage Christmas party games / physical games for teenager, silly activities for Christmas, and Christmas minute to win it games / Christmas activities for tweens.

Fun christmas party game that no one else is doing!

Christmas Charades

This is a classic Christmas party game of acting out something, for example Santa Claus or Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

One person from each team comes up and acts out whatever charade they have been given, the first person from the other team to guess what it is wins a point.

The first team with 5 points wins (or whatever point limit you set).

It’s a classic fun game for Christmas and great for smaller groups or large groups.


Christmas Gift Exchange Bingo

A Christmas bingo gift exchange is an updated version of White Elephant game for the holidays or another version of the Rob Your Neighbor game and is a great for a fun Christmas game to swap gifts.

With Christmas Gift Exchange Bingo, your teens play bingo to win prizes or steal prizes.

It’s a fun and engaging break the ice game for parties, too, because it gets everyone laughing and talking.

It’s one of those funny Christmas games where everyone gets competitive. I love this alternative to a white elephant gift exchange the old-fashioned way for fun Christmas games!

(Fun Christmas party for tweens and adults, too! Great for Christmas get together ideas for any age and the entire family for Christmas time.)


Christmas Scavenger Hunt

A Christmas scavenger hunt is fun because it gets people up, moving around, and working as teams to compete and win prizes.

We like this Christmas Scavenger Hunt game because it has prompts for both indoor scavenger hunts and outdoor scavenger holiday hunts!

You can also do another variation where teens use phones for the scavenger hunt.

(Because, yeah. Phones.)

Take the teens to a town square, mall, a nature walk, or even just around your house (with Christmas decorations and fun Christmas costumes or holiday photo props).

Each team gets a list of items and must take a photo.

Team with best number of photos wins a prize.

The funnier the holiday scavenger hunt prompt, the better. For example, best photo on Santa’s lap, weirdest holiday food item, etc.

This is even fun for Christmas party ideas for young adults coming home from college and Christmas party games for tweens!

It really turns into funny Christmas activities!

What’s In The Christmas Stocking?

What’s In The Christmas Stocking is a hilarious holiday party game. You add a variety of holiday themed items to a large Christmas stocking.

Give each teen guest a numbered list (the number of items in the stocking). (We use small clip boards to make it easier, especially if you’re not sitting at a table.)

The stocking is passed around and each person, WITHOUT LOOKING IN THE STOCKING, tries to identify as many items as possible (and writes them down).

The person who guesses the most, wins.

(Give away a fun prize or even the stocking and all the stocking contents to the winner!)

Use weird items to make hysterical Christmas activities with teens!

Definitely add this to your Christmas games for teens or high school Christmas party ideas!
