Santa’s Delivery Game
This is a fast-paced relay game in which players must carry more and more packages back and forth under the command of the hub manager.
The Purpose: The winning team will successfully deliver the most packages.
Supplies for the Game:
- Wrapped gift boxes
- Gift bags
- Jingle bells to go inside of wrapped packages
Provide a large number of wrapped gift boxes and gift bags in various sizes with jingle bells inside for fun. No need for ribbon or bows.
Place a card table on both ends of the room. One will be the starting point where the packages will be placed. Select one person to be the hub manager. The hub manager is in charge of keeping count of the number of packages successfully delivered.
One by one, team members aka delivery drivers, will pick up as many packages as they can carry and quickly deliver them to the table at the other end of the room. Once there, they will put them all down then pick them back up and deliver them back to the first table where the next member of their delivery team will then go.
Any packages dropped on the floor must remain on the floor and cannot be retrieved except by the hub manager who will return them to the starting table.
As the competition continues, the later players will need to carry more and more packages. The team to deliver the most packages successfully wins.
