Will you get Christmas coal or Christmas treats in this easy Christmas party game for kids of all ages? This game plays off the classic game where you hide a ball under one of three cups and then shuffle the cups around to see if the player can follow the ball. But in this holiday twist, two cups will have a piece of coal under them and one will have a marshmallow! (If you don't have candy coal, simply ball up a piece of black construction paper.) If the participant successfully follows the marshmallow, he gets to eat it! To make the game extra festive, use red cups and decorate them with a "Santa belt" wrapped around them; download our printables for the Santa belts. See it played, along with three other easy Christmas party games for kids in the video below.
