Indoor Outdoor Fun Activities for Seniors

In the spirit of festive togetherness, let's quickly explore a list of Christmas activities tailored for seniors. Recognizing the importance of extra care during the winter, when we may find ourselves confined indoors, these activities aim to create joyous memories and meaningful connections. From crafting DIY handmade Christmas ornaments, capturing moments for custom greeting cards, to engaging in a heartwarming cookie decorating competition, these activities bridge generations, ensuring quality time for the whole family.

Wrapping gifts can become a shared pleasure, turning a potentially challenging task into a cozy bonding experience over say hot chocolate with some peppermint schnapps! YUM! Venturing out, a mall shopping day caters to the timeless joy we can find in selecting gifts, while a neighborhood décor tour, whether by car or a leisurely stroll, always uplifts me and enhances the magic of the festive season.

Movie marathons, Christmas games (Christmas Carol Pictionary, Christmas trivia night, and holiday-themed charades), and singing carols round out the festivities, offering opportunities for both relaxation and spirited fun.

Now let's get to the fun indoor activities that are printable. And free!

Super Fun Dice Games

"Roll A Story" is not your typical Christmas dice game - it's a festive storytelling adventure that adds a creative twist to holiday celebrations. With each roll of the dice, players unveil unique story elements like characters, settings, and plot twists.

The magic happens as these elements come together to form whimsical and unexpected stories. Whether it's Santa embarking on a tropical vacation or elves discovering a secret gift workshop, the possibilities are as endless as your imagination.

This game not only sparks laughter but also enhances imagination, making it a delightful addition to Christmas gatherings where storytelling becomes a cherished part of it.

These games can be played alone or with more people. Even though this is called Printable Christmas Activities for Seniors, they're suitable for any age. There are 5 pages, so there's one surprise to draw on. Literally! 


Christmas Scavenger Hunt

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find and check off all 22 items in the picture. Sounds easy, right? Well, not so fast! These items are sneaky and might play a game of hide-and-seek with you.

To spice things up, throw in a time limit. Feel the adrenaline as you race against the clock to uncover every hidden gem. If you've got a group, it's a friendly competition. The one with the most check marks takes the crown. And if no one claims victory, the title goes to the savvy detective with the most checked items when time's up.

Now, to get ready, print out as many sheets as you need. Make sure you have some extra pens, pencils or crayons on standby in case someone forgets theirs.

And because every hero deserves a prize, amp up the excitement with some cool rewards for the winners. Think of them as little tokens of victory—maybe a favorite cookie or a box of delicious chocolates. The joy of winning, combined with festive treasures, will make your Christmas Scavenger Hunt an unforgettable experience.

May the best hunter win!


Christmas Who Am I? Guessing Game

This printable set of game cards includes a range of 36 movie stars from Christmas movies. If there are characters you are unfamiliar with, you can remove those cards from the game before playing. I have also included a page of blank cards, and a page of blank but decorated cards so that you can add any of your own favorite movie star names or characters.

This game is for 2 or more players.

Supplies Needed:
1. Printable game cards with Christmas movie actors or actresses' names (use the provided list or customize as per your preference).
2. Scissors to cut out the cards.
3. Headbands for each player.
4. Tape or adhesive to attach the cards to the headbands.
5. A timer (optional).

To Play:

1. Prepare. Print and cut out the game cards. Give each player a headband to wear.

2. Shuffle the cards and place them on a stack face down in the middle of the table.

3. Attach the cards. Select a card without looking at it and attach it to your own headband facing outward, ensuring that everyone else can see the card except you. Everyone repeats this process. Now everyone can see which card each player has, except their own.

4. Start the game. You could start with the youngest player and proceed clockwise around the table, or just start with the person to your right. Take turns to ask one question about your card as you try to gather your details. The objective is to figure out which Christmas movie star you are by asking yes-or-no questions.

Each player takes a turn asking questions to the group to determine their star. Questions can include information about the actor's role, appearance, or the movie they are from. For example, you might ask – am I male or female? Am I old or young? Am I still alive? Do I have a scar on my face? etc.

The other players can only respond with "yes," "no," or "maybe."

5. Set a Time Limit (Optional). You can use a timer to keep the game moving or make it more challenging. Just set a time limit for each player's turn.

6. Guessing the Name. Each player continues asking questions until they feel confident enough to make a guess. It must be their turn to make the guess. The first person to identify their actor is the winner of that round. When a player guesses the right name, they can remove the card from their headband. If the guess is incorrect, the game continues until someone correctly identifies their actor.

The other players can then keep taking turns to ask questions about their card until all actors have been identified. Once a round is complete, each player chooses a new card from the pile to start playing again.

7. Winning the Game. The game can continue for a set number of rounds, or until everyone has had a chance to guess. The player with the most correct guesses at the end of the game is the winner. Or if you're using set rounds - the player who is the first to correctly identify five actors is the winner. Be sure to pick the set of rounds beforehand.

8. Variations. For added fun, you can introduce additional rules, such as acting out the movie character without speaking or limiting questions to a certain theme.


Remember to keep the atmosphere light and enjoyable, encouraging laughter and festive spirit throughout the game. Happy playing!
