Santa Claus games include Santa Says, Waiting for Santa and Find the Santa. To play Santa Says, select one player to be Santa. Players stand in a line while Santa shouts commands using "Santa says..." For example, "Santa says sing a Christmas carol." Players should follow any instructions beginning with "Santa says." If a player does not follow the instruction, or follows an instruction without Santa saying "Santa Says," then he is out.
Waiting for Santa is a free printable board game available on the Reindeerland website. To play, print the game board and place player pieces on the start tile. Players take turns rolling a die and moving their pieces. If a player lands on a red square, he must do what is written on the square, which can be beneficial or detrimental. The first player to make it to the end of the board wins.
To play Find the Santa, select one player to be Rudolph. Send Rudolph out of the room, then select a different player to be Santa. Instruct all the players except Rudolph to sit in a circle, and then bring Rudolph back to sit in the middle of the circle. Have Santa wink at other players in the circle. If a player sees Santa wink, he must shout "Ho! Ho! Ho! Here comes the Santa!" The game ends once Rudolph guesses who the Santa is.
