The 'Saran Wrap Ball' Christmas Party Game Is A Must! • There are all sorts of interesting and fun games you can play at your #Christmas party, but this one is super duper fun! It is called ‘The Saran Wrap Ball’ and it is just that…a massive ball of Saran Wrap with a ton of goodies layered throughout the ball and one awesome prize in the center! (see photos below) The first person with the ball starts unwrapping while the person on their right rolls a pair of dice, trying to roll doubles.Once doubles are rolled, the ball is passed to the next player and the sequence begins again.The person with the ball does not stop unwrapping until the person to their right rolls doubles. This creates a wonderful suspense and urgency to the game!

Make sure to put the best gift in the middle and remember…you can be creative and make this ball of Saran Wrap as big as you want!!! Feel free to modify the rules a bit too! Maybe use just one of the dice and pick a number that has to be hit in order for the ball to pass to the right! Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
