Christmas activities

What to do at Christmas, how many times have we asked ourselves that and ended up doing the usual board games or bingo. Here are some free ideas for spending the holidays in an alternative way.

Christmas is the most beautiful and magical time of the year. When the month of December begins, one of the thoughts that nags everyone is: what to do at Christmas? We all know, at Christmas time we stay at home with family or friends and there are so many alternatives to spend time with friends during the holidays. After the Christmas Eve dinner or the lunch of December 25th usually we all play together, but in the end we always find ourselves doing the same things, in fact it’s difficult to find something really original and different to have fun together.

We have selectedsome original experiences for you, most of these are generally sold online at a cost ranging from £15 to £30, but in this article we have only selected things to do for Christmas for free.

An activity that groups of friends can enjoy, but also parents and children: the scavenger hunt is a great way to spend the Christmas holiday and keep everyone entertained.

Group games. Some ideas on what to do at Christmas maybe after dinner or lunch or in a group with lots of friends.

Celebrating Christmas at home can be the perfect opportunity to have fun with games. An idea suitable for families and children or even groups of friends. The possibilities are many, including quizzes and group games that can be played with a Christmas theme. Divided into teams, complete with punishments for those who get it wrong, participants immerse themselves in games that test their skills.

Below is a selection of free group games with which you can pass the time during the Christmas holidays. For each game you can have fun customizing them or finding Christmas themed “punishments”.

It’s so cold

Equipment. Nothing. Each team chooses one player, ideally the smallest. The game consists in making the chosen player wear as many jerseys or garments as possible, which his teammates will have taken off. The game is timed. Who win? The team that manages to get the most clothing on their …

Karaoke without words

Equipment. Nothing. We split into two teams. The first player introduces himself to the opposing team who, in a low voice, tells him which is the song he will have to try to make his teammates guess. It must be, of course, very popular songs that everyone more or less …

Would you rather

Equipment. A smartphone plus a person who knows at least some English. Would You Rather is not exactly one of the more conventional smartphone group games, as it is hardly possible to call it a “group game”. Divided into categories, the app subjects participants to a series of crossroads questions …

Drunken balloons

Equipment. Balloons, glass or iron or plastic marbles. Inflate some balloons, but before closing them insert a glass ball in each one so that once thrown in the air, they take unusual trajectories and make strange movements. Divide the players into teams and distribute a number of balloons equal to …

All but one

Equipment. As many different items as there are players minus one. Arrange at a certain distance from the players, as many objects as there are competitors, minus one (for example, 10 players and 9 objects). When the game starts, each player, as fast as possible will have to try to …

Etabu

Equipment. One smartphone. Did you think Taboo was a board game only? Wrong: to the delight of its admirers, a digital variant is also available. The rules are exactly the same: divided into two teams, the players will have to guess the word that one of their teammates, in turn, …

Online Escape Room: Have fun at home for Christmas by solving mysteries that have never been revealed, from the comfort of your couch.

Since a few years ago we have all heard about, at least once, the Escape Rooms, real game experiences to achieve the same goal: get out of the room by collecting clues and solving puzzles and brain teasers. From the real escape room puzzles, which transport you into surreal and fantastic worlds, we have arrived at online escape rooms: virtual escape room games where interactivity and multimedia are the main features. Games in which you need to use your wits to solve the chosen adventure.

Mysteries to solve and the supernatural can become the right ingredients for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Below we have selected some free online escape room experiences.

The pirate treasure of La Buse

La Buse was one of the world’s most famous pirates. Across seas and oceans, he stole treasure and riches that he hid in a place no one has ever been able to find. My name is Marcus, I am 13 years old and I live with my dad Andrew in …

The disappearance of Ettore Majorana

March 27, 1938, the well-known physicist Ettore Majorana disappears into thin air on the return journey on the Palermo-Naples ferry. Each investigation had not provided the slightest clue, each statement had not served to unravel the tangled skein. How can a person disappear without a trace? I have been asking …

The Edgar Allan Poe’s grave

Hello visitor, welcome. If you’re here it’s because you want to unravel the mystery that involves me personally. You want to know why for more than 50 years I visited Edgar Allan Poe’s grave, never showing my face or revealing my name. I warn you, unravelling the mystery will not be easy: keep your eyes open and your mind clear. Start exploring the map, good luck.

    Escape room divertente e davvero equilibrata. Gli enigmi sono ben variegati, mai banali ma senza difficoltà eccessive o errori interpretativi. Insomma davvero un ottimo lavoro. consiglio!

  • Abbiamo provato tutte e due le avventure e ci sono piaciute parecchio, ma il mistero del violino nero di Stradivari rimane il mio preferito. In questo periodo in cui non ci si può muovere, per noi che siamo appassionati di escape room questo è stato un modo di poterci esercitare su enigmi tutti insieme anche a distanza. Complimenti. 😃👏👏
