Easy Plate Game for Kids & School Holiday Parties

I saw this game somewhere on the Internet and thought it would be perfect for my son’s first grade Christmas party at school.  I was in charge of coming up with an easy game for 6-7 year olds that was a quiet game.  This game can be adapted for any occasion whether it be a holiday or just because.

All you need is white paper plates, any size, and markers.  Then have each child put the plate on their heads and have them draw something.  Since it was Christmas I asked them to draw a tree or snowman and try to write their name.  They loved the game and asked to play it at the next holiday party at school.  I couldn’t believe how simple it was and how much they loved it!  This would be a great rainy day game too!

    this would be great for my little granddaughters birthday.

  2. It’s always the simple things in life that are keepers or the most fun!
    Give most kids that age a marker and something to write on and they are all set to have fun! Some kids that age have some difficulties even writing their names. Their master pieces should be keepers ?
    Great idea!

  3. We’ve played this game at various lil parties we’ve had and it never fails to make everyone laugh so hard! It is silly, simple and so fun!
