How to Play Christmas Pictionary

  • Decide if you will play in teams or individually
  • Decide how much time each team or individual gets for people to guess what they are drawing.
  • Set up the room so everyone can see the board and the person drawing can hear as people shout out their guesses.
  • Remind everyone before the game starts that the Christmas Pictionary cards revolve around the Christmas theme.
  • Remind everyone that the artist can nod ‘Yes’, shake their head ‘No’, and point to the board, but they cannot speak.
