The other night I played a fun game with my family. The object of the game was to figure out the first lines of famous songs based on a set of initials. We had 13 people – so one was the judge (to determine how many answers were right and to count up who got the most answers correct) and the rest of us split up into 4 teams of 3. Team members should go to different parts of the house, so they can’t hear answers being talked about by other members.
I am pretty good at knowing the words of Christmas songs (and my team won the game!) but this was a tricky but fun game. Print out copies of the game that I came up with below – or create your own. The answers to the first lines are below the quiz. You can set different time limits for the quiz – but we did 15 minutes.
Have fun and Merry Christmas to all!
