This is a fun addition game for your kids to enjoy leading up to Christmas vacation when you can no longer hold their attention! This game can be played with Christmas candies or BINGO chips if you desire. This set includes 20 game boards. I recommend printing and laminating if possible to ensure years of use.
What you need: One game board per student, Christmas M&Ms or other Christmas candies you may like (they can usually be found at local convenience stores or super -markets), small cups, dice (BINGO chips if not using M&Ms or candy)
How to play:
Christmas M&Ms: This is a really fun and yummy twist on this game. Give each student a small cup of Christmas M&Ms. Remind the students not to eat the M&Ms until after the game is finished (Good luck with that! Actually you would be surprised at how well most of the students do!) Take turns having students roll the dice. Students will add the two die together to determine the number. Once they determine the sum all students will cover the number on their board if they have it. Play continues until the first student covers all of his/her numbers on their board. Continue to get 2nd, 3rd place winners. When play is concluded of course the prize is the M&Ms for all students!
Variation: Use small bingo chips to cover the numbers, but let’s face it M&Ms are more fun!
Variation: Instead of using this as a large group game, use as a small group or in pairs.
