I LOVE Christmas and always have. When I was a child, it was because of the magic and the gifts. Now, it’s more about the excitement, Christmas spirit, and quality time with family.

Since my family really enjoys playing games, I naturally associate games with quality family time. And with one child in college and two more graduating high school this year, I love finding ways to play games that don’t cost a fortune.

That’s why I went in search of free printable Christmas games. I want you to make some fun, lasting memories without taking on a financial burden in the process. 

Materials Needed

You don’t need much to create and play the games below. You’re spending enough on your other holiday prep, so give your wallet a break!

For most of the printable games in this list, you only need some paper and a printer. Some games require something to write with, others need to be cut out with scissors, and one or two need markers of some sort (e.g. candy, coins, or buttons).

More than likely you have everything you need to start playing right on or near your home desk or office! So if you’re ready to have fun, just scroll through the ideas below and choose your favorites.
