We ask volunteers to bake and donate plain sugar cookies for our group. Then we provide icing, sprinkles, sugar crystals, and other decorating supplies. You can either have a cookie-decorating competition or you can just make this a part of holiday-themed night. Who doesn’t love cookies?

We purchase three sets of three identical items and have a gift-wrapping competition. These three things should progressively become more difficult to gift-wrap (box of cupcakes, a coffee mug, basketball).

Pull three contestants on stage and see who can gift-wrap the three packages the cleanest and the quickest. For a twist, have three teams of two. Have one person describe how to wrap the gifts while the other person wraps them blindfolded. When you’re finished, decide where/to whom you’ll donate the gifts, then go do it.

Have one volunteer from each team be the Christmas tree, and give four minutes for the teams to decorate their volunteer. Pull aside your adult leaders and have them judge which team decorated the best tree.

The night before you meet, go to the store and buy a few T-shirts. Get them wet, fold them up, put them in a gallon-sized baggie, and freeze them. The game is pretty simple. Whoever can unfold the shirt and put it on first wins. I recommend you personally trying this yourself a few days before you’re going to play. Getting the right amount of water is a science. One time I had the shirts so frozen, no one could unwrap the block of ice. Oop!
