I am trying to think of things as well, not sure if you are along these lines...

Sing a Christmas song
Sing a Christmas carol
Name some ingredients that go into Christmas pudding/cake
Tell bits of the Christmas story
Draw a Christmas picture

(And if anyone can think of anymore that would be grand!)

Put the sweets in for the next few days and then go and get some more. (Ask me what I'm doing this year......)

Paper chain challenge - who can make the longest one?

I do one of these but mine are older!

How about

Walk like a turkey
3 christmas things beginning with 'C'
First verse of Jingle Bells backwards
2 of Santa's reindeer names
Make a snowflake
4 words that rhyme with 'glitter' or 'cracker'
4 words that begin with 'snow'

One for the 10 year old - how many birds did my true love send me? (mine always add it up wrong grin)
