After a delicious Christmas dinner, what could be better than settling down in front of the fire with loved ones to take part in some festive games?

Here’s our round-up of the best ways to up the holiday fun this Christmas!

Board games

They’re classics for a reason – there’s nothing quite like sitting down with family for a board game session to bring out the Christmas spirit (or friendly rivalry!) Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly, Risk – or what about modern classic Pieface? The possibilities are endless!

Something active

If you’re keen to burn off those Christmas lunch calories, what about a festive game of charades to get the blood pumping and the laughter well and truly flowing? Or if your gathering is big enough, a festive game of Sardines is guaranteed to provide tonnes of fun.

Make your own quiz

Why not try making your own quiz? The beauty of this is that you can theme the questions around whatever topics your loved ones are into. (Or not, if you want to make it extra difficult!)

Are you a family that’s into music? What about a game of guess the intro? Simply stick on a playlist and the person who guesses what song’s playing quickest wins.

Make a mess!

We all know what it’s like – sometimes kids just want to make a mess.  Don’t worry, here at Ace, we’ve got you covered against stains. Here’s our roundup of some of the best messy games and activities to play with the little ones this Christmas:

In our experience, kids LOVE the Chocolate Game.  Never played it before? The basic premise is getting people to eat a bar of chocolate, with a knife and fork, while dressed up in bulky winter accessories. Yes, it is as messy as it sounds. Here’s a detailed tutorial (including ideas for some fun twists).

Or you could try making your very own foaming snowman. All you need is some baking soda, dish soap, salt, vinegar and waterproof accessories. Get the tutorial here.

Carrying on the snowy theme, how about making your very own magic puffing snow?  Trust us, it’s endless messy fun. See the tutorial here.
