Christmas Guess-A-Word Game

cookie-canes-oh-1830666-lHere is what you say to introduce this game:

I’m thinking of a Christmas Thing – a word or phrase that has something to do with Christmas. It could be a Christmas character, food, object, songs or anything else that has to do with Christmas. If you can guess what I am thinking of, you win a candy cane (or other prize). But here’s the trick. You can only ask questions that I can answer with a YES or NO. The secret is to ask category questions that will lead you to the answer, rather than just random guessing. To encourage you to ask category questions – if you ask a category question, such as “Is it someone in the Christmas story?” and get a “yes” then you get to ask another question, in fact, you can ask as many questions as you want, as long as you get a ‘yes.’ Example, if it is “Mary”, you could ask:

Is it someone in the Bible? (yes)
Where they there when Jesus was a baby? (yes)
Was it a woman? (yes)
Was it Mary? (YES!)
