5. Jingle in the Trunk 

Strap on an empty tissue box, fill with jingle bells from the local craft store and jingle all the way to #winning. The fun starts in this video at about the 33 second mark.

4. Paper Dragon

There’s no better way to unwind this Christmas. Grab the brightest, happiest streamer colors you can find and have contestants unwind two rolls using only their arms as fast as they can.

3. The Mannequin Challenge

Strap on an empty tissue box, fill with jingle bells from the local craft store and jingle all the way to #winning. If you wanna be all official like dat, here’s the song that goes with your recording.

2. Face the Cookie

Players place a cookie on their forehead and race using (only their face muscles) to get the cookie down to their mouth to eat it.

1. Pop the Potato

This is my favorite. Two teams. One potato for each person. Do I even have to explain? Carry that potato between your thighs and squat to drop it in the bucket when it’s your turn. First team to relay through everyone first wins.
