How to Download Printable Christmas Pictionary
Click here or on the picture above to download your game. Once it comes up, click on the 3 dots in the top right corner of your screen and click on “Download”.
After you download your Christmas Pictionary, print it out then cut your cards apart. I recommend printing it on cardstock so that you have studier cards for all of the fun.
Ways to Play Christmas Pictionary
Of course, you can always play the classic Pictionary way with this game. To do so, split into teams and take turns drawing cards and sketching out the word or phrase on them to get your teammates to guess. The team with the most points after all of the cards have been drawn wins.
On Your Head
This version of Christmas Pictionary is hilariously fun. Instead of dividing into teams, choose 1 person to be the judge at the beginning of the round. The judge draws a cards and reads it aloud to everyone.
The players then have 1 minute to try to draw what’s on the card. The catch is that they are doing it on a paper plate on top of their heads.
After one minute, everyone reveals their drawings and the judge picks their favorite by giving them the card. The person to the left of the judge then becomes the judge and a new round starts.
The player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.
If you have never played the game Telestrations, you are missing out. It is such a fun game that will have you laughing so hard that you cry. You will need to buy the game to pay this version because you need the dry erase flip boards for it.
To play, swap out the die and game cards for the printable Christmas Pictionary cards. If you’re unfamiliar with the game, this is how it works:
Everyone draws a card and writes the word or phrase on the first page of their flip book along with their name. They then sketch out the word or phrase on the second page.
Books are then passed to the left and you look at the sketch page only then write your guess on page 3 of the flip book.
Play continues in this manner until your book gets back to you. Then everyone reveals the pages one at a time.
Make It Your Own
Included in the printable is a blank sheet so you can make your own fun Christmas Pictionary cards. This is a great way to add in holiday items or traditions that are unique to your family.
No matter which way you choose to play this Christmas Pictionary game, your family will have a blast playing this holiday season. I highly recommend trying out each play style at least one time. You will be rolling in laughter and creating awesome memories together.
