This game couldn't be simpler - but it is a great way to use last year's cards and kids (and adults) enjoy it. A good boredom buster for long winter afternoons!
Simple gather together a collection of old Christmas cards and carefully cut off the backs. Avoid glittery cards.
Now set up a "course" by placing a large box or bin on the floor and marking a place to stand some feet away from it, depending on the age of the children. If you are playing with mixed ages, older children should stand further away than younger children. Each child takes turns tossing a stack of cards (like a frisbee) into the box. Count up and the child with the most cards in the box wins.
