I am in charge of planning our Christmas Party for our homeschool group this year. There is mostly K-3 but a few older kids as well. I was looking for some ideas on games to play with a holiday theme that would be fun for the younger ones but not totally lame for the older ones. Let me know if you have any ideas.

 the dictionary game

have them dress up in costume best one gets prizes

treasure hunt

this was always a favorite : 

King Elephant

This is a game of memory and laughter! Here's how it works. Players sit in a circle and everyone decides what animal they will be and what hand signal they will use to reflect that animal. For example; someone may be a worm and wiggle their finger or be a duck and bend their arms and "flap them" like wings. One person is King Elephant and their signal is holding their arm out in front of their face like an elephant trunk. King Elephant is the "head" of the circle and there should be an empty chair or empty space between him/her and the next player, who is the back of the circle.

When play begins King Elephant starts. King Elephant makes his/her signal and then another player's animal signal. That player then has to make their signal and another player's animal signal. Play continues uninterrupted until someone goofs! The player who goofs goes to the back of the play circle and all other players move up.

The goal of each player is to become King Elephant. This can happen when King Elephant makes a mistake and has to go to the end of the line. King Elephant then has to become whatever animal the new King Elephant was and use this new signal. The new King Elephant has to remember that they are now the King Elephant signal. It gets confusing and that is part of the fun!

Note: It may be a good idea to set a time limit on play or just let the group keep playing until you see that the interest and enthusiasm is lagging
