How to make these holiday trivia question cards step-by-step
Download your free copy of these holiday trivia questions and answers printable cards. Simply sign up for our free newsletter.
Print the trivia card sheets out on your printer.
Cut the individual cards out and place them in a pile for play.
You can choose to print the answers on the back of the question card (the answer sheet alternates with each printable sheet of questions). You will have to figure out how to print and load paper in your particular printer to make that happen (it’s not usually complicated). Or you can choose to print them separately and then attach the correct answers to the back of the question cards.
How to play holiday trivia games
Decide whether you will play as individuals or teams.
Decide whether you’ll take turns asking and answering or have one person ask a question to the entire group and the first person to call out the correct answer wins.
You can also ask questions and have each person write down answers on an answer sheet rather than calling them out.
Determine whether you’re keeping points for the right answer to questions to determine a winner or not.
The first person chooses a card and asks the question. You can continue around the group with a new person asking the next question. Or you can choose to have one person ask all the holiday trivia questions.
Decide whether there will be prizes given. My family plays for bragging rights, but if you do choose to give prizes, I recommend you select small prizes, such as candy canes, holiday books or the right to choose the next Christmas movie, song or dessert.
