Summary: Christmas Cookie Pictionary is played with sugar cookies and frosting rather than pen and pencil.
Ages: From 12 to adult
Recommended Number of Players:
1) Large baked sugar cookies, enough for one per player
2) Frosting in tubes with fine tips or in a baggie with a small hole cut from the corner
3) Slips of paper containing the pictures/clues to be drawn
4) Paper plates
5) A one minute timer
Have the cookies, frosting and word strips available on a table.
How to Play:
The first team begins by choosing a player to be the one to draw the word on the cookie using only the frosting. This player will choose a slip of paper containing the first word and has 5 seconds to look at the word and come up with a strategy. The player can not use letters, only pictures to get their team to guess the word from the slip of paper within one minute. If the team guesses corectly, they get a point. It is then the next teams turn to choose a slip of paper and draw a different word on their cookie. Everyone should get a chance to draw on a cookie.
The team with the most points at the end of the game, wins.

Many people come to this site looking for a couple specific games. When they find them, great, the job is done. But there is one thing I want ALL my guests to know regardless of how many or how few pages they read. Therefore, if you see this box again on a few more pages, skip it and move on to finding more games for your event.
But for those reading this for the first time, here is the best advice I can pass on from my many years of experience planning and executing large and small events. Read on…
“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.” These are great words from A.A. Milne, the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh. I couldn’t agree more. And a solid foundation of organizing and planning is needed for most events. But I am here to tell you even with the BEST organization, no event is going to proceed EXACTLY as planned. You may even have a Plan B, C or D as a back-up. That’s fabulous! But trust me on this one; something will happen that you had no way of anticipating. So what now? Here is the trick. Pay close attention to this because it is the single most important piece of wisdom I can share with my readers.
Are you ready?
That’s it. I could write an entire page on how to “be in the moment” and “have fun at your own party.” But neither of those will happen if you don’t have the mindset that it’s alright to have things turn out differently than you imagined. The good news is that usually what you planned in your head that didn’t come through was never even missed by most.
So if you are going along, playing a game, or any other group activity, and it leads you down a road you didn’t foresee… Enjoy the ride.
