Play this every Christmas. Have everyone who is playing get in a big circle, one player gets the tape ball. Set an amount of time 20 to 45 seconds. The player with the ball removes tape as fast as they can and anything they dislodge is theirs to keep. I pick up items all year long and save them for the tape ball game. I put everything from candy, dollar store toys, bottle sodas, gift cards etc. (hint, place all items in ziplock bags to prevent items from tearing) perfect for all ages.
Put together a Christmas Eve Box for kids to open- include new pj's, a holiday book to read before bed, reindeer food to sprinkle in the yard, Santa's magic key.... lots of other ideas of things to include here, too! Such a fun family tradition!
