Christmas Pictionary Words

Christmas is the perfect time to get together with friends and family. And, what better way to have fun with your favorite people than by playing a game!

If you are looking for a festive game that is great for groups, then you’ll want to consider pictionary!

The great thing about pictionary is that you can keep it simple–all you need is a timer, pen/pencil, paper and word cards to play.

How to Play Pictionary

The goal of Pictionary is to guess what word the designated drawer of the team is drawing.

It is hilarious and fun and perfect for all ages.

To play pictionary, first, divide your group into teams.

One team goes first and designates a drawer. The drawer picks up a card, reads the word to themselves, and begins to draw the word.

The timer starts ticking down as the drawer’s teammates try to guess the word.

If the team guesses the word, they get a point!

Then, another team gets a turn to play. At the end of the game (you can choose to end the game after each team gets a certain number of turns), whoever has the most points wins!

You can change the rules to suit your group of people, but this is a general overview of how to play.

Words for Christmas Pictionary

To make this game Christmas-themed, use some of the following words.

Write each word on a notecard, and turn them face down. When it’s your turn to draw, choose the top card, read it to yourself, and begin play!

  • presents
  • carolers
  • christmas tree
  • santa claus
  • reindeer
  • elves
  • hot cocoa
  • santa’s sleigh
  • candy cane

  • pumpkin pie
  • snowman
  • snowflake
  • North Pole
  • christmas lights
  • wrapping paper
  • mistletoe
  • nutcracker
  • little drummer boy
  • angel
