We love getting together at Christmas and playing simple party games. One of our favourites is Charades. This year we decided to go along with our printable Christmas Crackers (scroll down for instructions) we thought would make our own Charades to put in them. So here we go for you as well a fun set of FREE Printable Christmas Charades that everyone will enjoy playing.
Charades is one of the easiest games to play as a family. From your preschooler up everyone can join in.
You just need to print them out and then have fun.
Our set is great for all of the family, we’ve made sure that included simple images that can help the younger members of the family to play.
Check out which printer we use as a family and how easy it is to use.
How to Play Charades
Yes, it is possible to play charades with preschoolers and our set is designed with this in mind.
We recommend playing in pairs that way an older family member can help the younger members play accurately otherwise you can get some very very strange actions.
Simply pick a card together then confer about the idea.
Let the preschooler act out the idea and then help them.
Playing as a family you can use it as a great game for turn taking and sharing with your little ones.
Why not also grab our Printable Christmas Scavenger Hunt to play as a family. It’s ideal for tots to adults to do indoors this holiday season.
Alternatives for Using these Printable Charade Cards for Christmas
We decided to switch these up and use them for a game of Christmas Pictionary as well.
Easy to do and doubles up the game.

Adding Your Christmas Charades to Your Christmas Crackers
We decided to use the printable game in our Christmas Crackers this year. Instead of buying them from the store you can make your own DIY printable Christmas Character Crackers.
Inside each cracker, we’ve placed a little gift for each person at the table and then a charade. I made these charades afterwards and it was so easy to add to the crackers.
- Just roll up the charade card once you have cut it up.
- Then get it tighter and tighter until it will fit in the hole at the end of the cracker. Even store-bought crackers have this so you can add these cards to those.
- Once inside the cracker shake it about and it will open up the card inside.
Then on Christmas Day or your Family Party “bang” the cracker and then enjoy playing the game together as a family.
