The Race for Christmas board game is a fun Christmas game for preschool-1st grade. The players race to the middle of the game board, rolling presents, candy canes, gingerbread houses, and more to advance.

Object of the game: To be the first player to reach the Merry Christmas box.

How to play: The first player to roll a present goes first. Player 1 rolls the die and advances to the first square that has a symbol that matches the one they rolled. Example: Player 1 rolled a gingerbread house, so they advance to the first gingerbread house. Then it is Player 2's turn. There is no limit to the number of students who can play.

When a player lands on a square with an arrow, they go back the number of squares that it says. When a player lands on the Start Over square, they go back to start and must start over. When a player lands on a square with a Christmas ornament, they get to advance to the next square with a matching ornament.

To win: When a player nears the end of the game, if they roll a symbol and there are no more squares with that symbol, they get to advance to Merry Christmas and win. Example: Player 3 rolls a hot chocolate and there are no more hot chocolate squares. They get to go to Merry Christmas and win. The game can end when the first player reaches Merry Christmas, or it can continue until all of the players have reached it.
