Christmas Pictionary

The holiday season is the perfect time of year to slow down and spend quality time with family. We love playing games like would you rather or who is most likely to. It’s an easy way for us to have fun and bond as a family!

Our whole family enjoyed playing Thanksgiving Pictionary so I decided to keep the fun going by creating this free Christmas Pictionary printable!

Pictionary is the perfect game to play as a family or to keep your kids entertained with their friends during the holiday season! You don’t need amazing drawing skills, just some pens, paper, and some creativity.

What is Pictionary?

Pictionary is a simple drawing and guessing game. The whole family can easily play, children and adults alike!

One person draws their assigned word while the other players on their team guess what they are drawing. The person drawing can’t talk, make sounds, or write words. Their drawing needs to show the other players what the word is.

How to Play Pictionary

To get started, grab our pre-printed Christmas Pictionary words, pens, paper, and a game timer. Decide whether you want to work together or divide into two teams. Dividing everyone into two teams will make the game more competitive.

To play with two teams, have a person from each team come up at the same time to draw. Have them pick a card with a word, set the timer, and let the drawing begin! The team that guesses correctly first, gets a point.

If you prefer less competition or if you want to play with younger kids, work together as a team to guess the word. Send one person up to pick a card and start drawing. This version of Christmas pictionary is perfect for families with varying ages and/or smaller children.

Rules of Pictionary

Choose one person to pick a printed Christmas Pictionary card. Only the person drawing can look at the card. Use a game timer or set a digital timer for one minute, or whatever time you choose.

The person drawing has one minute to draw the word on a whiteboard or on a piece of paper while the other players try to guess what they are drawing. They keep drawing until the team guesses the word correctly or time runs out. Choose the next person and start the fun all over again!

Tips for Playing Christmas Pictionary

Make your Christmas Pictionary even more magical with these simple tips!

Involve Young Children

If you are playing with younger children, try and make it less stressful for them. You can accomplish this by giving them extra time to draw or assigning them a partner to help them draw or whisper ideas of what to draw to them. Less stress means more fun for everyone!

Use Cardstock

We love printing our Christmas Pictionary cards onto cardstock because I know they will last longer. It makes them a lot more durable and you can’t see through them. I even take extra time to laminate them so we can play them next year too!

Use a Whiteboard

Using a whiteboard to draw on is a lot easier for everyone to see. Plus you can easily wipe it clean and use it over and over again! It also gives you more space to create your beautiful drawings! I love using portable whiteboards because they are compact but still stand up on their own so you can use it on a table.
