Today I’m sharing another free printable party game: our brand new Christmas Tree Trivia Test.
We finally got our tree decorated last night. It’s been up and lighted for a week, but no ornaments. I’ve been too busy unpacking moving boxes to search for decorations.
Many hands make light labor
But the kids volunteered to do the decorating for me. So they worked on the tree while I continued to sift through all our books and clothes and kitchen utensils. Trying to find a new place to put everything. Or at least a place for the things we most need to keep.
So here’s what our tree looks like now:
There aren’t any ornaments on the highest branches, because the little ones couldn’t reach without a ladder, which I was using in another room. But the job they did is plenty good enough for me! And they seem happy with it, too.
On the topic of Christmas trees, the following new party game printable will test how much you know about this beloved tradition.
