I love having the students play minute to win it games. They’re obviously always fun but they can really be categorized as stem activities too. We’re sharing 5 fun Minute to Win It games that are perfect for Christmas time!
You’ll need a popsicle stick and 5 Hersey Kiss’s per team. The student will carefully place 5 Hersey Kisses on the popsicle stick. Then they will try to walk across the room without dropping the ‘bells”.
Christmas Card Stack
You’ll need 4 plastic cups and 3 Christmas cards. The students will have to stack the cups just right using a Christmas card in between each cup.
You’ll need assorted pom-pom balls, mini erasers, holiday Hersey kiss’s, a cup per team/person, and a tray. Each student will need to sort out the items onto the tray. Don’t let them dump out the contents of the cup though, it makes it too easy!
Give each student a Christmas cookie, gingerbread men work well, or Christmas Oreos. They’ll place the cookie on their forehead and carefully try to get the cookie into their mouth without using their hands.
Christmas Card Puzzles
Cut up a few different Christmas cards into squares. Mix up the pieces and the students will try to put together the Christmas card picture. Make it a little more difficult by having 2 or 3 cards cut up and mixed together.
