Fun Christmas Games

As I have been getting ready for this holiday season I have come across a couple of games to play with the family and thought I would share them with you.

Supplies:  a present wrapped multiple times, a pair of dice and a pair of winter gloves preferably without fingers.
Get a present, it doesn't have to be anything expensive, something that would be good for anyone....old, young, male or female.  Wrap the gift multiple times with different kinds of paper, tape, plastic, so there are several layers and so its easy to tell the different layers apart. 
Have all your guests sit around a table.  Each person takes a turn rolling a pair of dice.   When someone rolls doubles they have to put on a pair of snow gloves to unwrap a layer of the wrapping.  The last person to unwrap the present wins the gift.
Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt
A). You and yours take a drive or walk through your neighborhood and see how many of these you can find.  Make it harder by not using the same house for more than one thing.
B). You and yours go up against another group in a photo relay.  How many of these can you find in an allotted amount of time?  You will need to provide photo evidence.  Again, you can only count a house for one item on your list!
Happy Hunting!!!!

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and I hope you have fun.  Let us know if you play these games OR let us know if you have another game to share.  I would love to hear your ideas.

UPDATE:  We played these games on Christmas Eve.  They were a lot of fun.  For the Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt we did not use two separate lists, we combined the two lists and even added one other item.  Every year they do Christmas lights at the Temple.  In the middle of lawn in front of the visitors center are 3 camels.  We added a picture of someone kissing the camel at the Temple.  We allowed both groups 1 hour to find all 20 items (keep in mind we took off the other camel on the list) one could use our street to find any of the items on the list.  Everyone loved the games and want to play again next year.  Next year we will change up the list a little and possibly the area of town we can find the items in.  (Below is a picture of my husband kissing the camel's bum...)
Gotta love it!  How he got down to the camel without falling I will never know.
