Pin the Red Nose on Rudolph

This is a Christmas party version on a classic game. We are very familiar with "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" which we have all played at one time or another.

This year, introduce some of our favorite Christmas games for kids to your family, or simply play this with your friends and reminisce about the good old days! Gather the supplies and follow the directions listed below for one of the most fun-filled Christmas party games!

Red circle cutouts for his nose, one per person
Double stick tape
Black Sharpie


Print out a poster-sized picture of Rudolph and tape it to a wall in the office

How to Play

Hand out one red circle per contestant, and affix double-stick tape to one side of each circle.

Have each contestant write their name in Sharpie on the red circle so you can determine whose circle is closest to Rudolph's real nose at the end of the game.

Put a blindfold on each contestant, spin them around once, and let them try to stick their red circle nose closest to Rudolph's nose on the poster.

Repeat until everyone's red circles are up on the board and you have a winner.

The person who places their red circle closes to where Rudolph's nose should be, wins!
