This Christmas party game was a lot of fun. We played it with a small group of teenagers. But the game could easily be adapted for players of all ages, group sizes, or celebrations. This game would be great for birthday parties!

Where to Buy Christmas Goodies:
All of the little toys and treats purchased for this game came from the Dollar Tree.
They have a great selection of items and make it so the game isn't too expensive. Plus several items purchased had more than 1 item in the package so that was split into a couple prizes.
As you are browsing the isles simply think of who will be playing the game and what are the things they may want.
The items also need to be on the smaller side. The largest item we purchased was a bag of cotton candy so that became the main prize.
How to Make the Plastic Wrap Game:
Begin by pulling out a section of plastic wrap.
Stretch the end around the main prize. This can be the most expensive, or just the largest, and secure the ends of the plastic wrap around the gift.
Wrap the plastic wrap tightly around the gift several more times, and then with a pair of scissors, cut the plastic wrap off the roll.
Grab another length of plastic wrap and begin wrapping the previous gift.
Take another prize, continue wrapping and repeat.
Continue wrapping and adding prizes until you have a large ball of prizes!
It is completely up to you how big your prize ball will be, and how many layers of plastic wrap. In fact, we wrapped several pieces of plastic wrap with no prize to be funny.
We ended up using about 450 feet of plastic wrap and spent about $30 on prizes and candy.
Plastic Wrap Game Rules:
All players get in a circle.
The older player starts with the prize ball, and the player to the left of that person starts with the dice.
Someone shouts go, and the player holding the prize ball begins to unwrap it. Ripping the plastic wrap is not allowed. The player must find the end of the wrap and begin unwrapping it.
Anything that falls out while that player is unwrapping is theirs to keep.
While the player is unwrapping, the person to the left rolls repeatedly until doubles are rolled.
Once doubles are rolled, everything is passed to the left. The person who had the dice now gets to unwrap the prize ball and the next player to the left gets dice and is trying to roll doubles.
This repeats until the prize ball is completely unwrapped and the last prize has been won.
This is such a fun game! Since everything is wrapped in plastic wrap you can see several layers and it was so funny to see what toys they would get excited about and hope for.
They also got really intense at the end, and everyone was laughing so hard.
You can see how the game played out by watching the video above!
