Have you heard about Christmas in July? Christmas in July gives you an excuse to throw in some holiday spirit during the middle of summer during these troubling times and I say go for it.

Check out these great activities Richel and her team are offering their troop for their Christmas in July party!
1. Here you go! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Fm55YjgxFU7Zv-I9VQ4UQtiq4IQj6icEmeKGmAmIsrg/edit?usp=sharing
2. Trivia Game
3. Make s’mores “gingerbread” houses with graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate (and then enjoy!). Break out an old-school Slip-n-Slide (or make your own!) in lieu of sledding.
Have participants put a "Santa belly" under their shirt using a pillow. Place a limbo stick at a starting height. Then line up, and one by one try to limbo underneath (with the Santa belly) until everyone has tried. Slightly lower the stick and have those who made it through go again. Continually lower the stick until one winner remains!
FAMILY FEUD CHRISTMAS
Players are broken up into teams. They answer questions from this list of holiday-themed survey responses. Each team is given an allotted time to write their three guesses on a piece of paper. The judge then reveals if their guesses were on the list and the value of their answers. The number one ranked survey response is worth 50 points, 40 if it's number two, and so on. Once all the questions have been answered, the points are tallied to determine the winner.
STOCKING GUESSING GAME
First, you need a host to put random items in a stocking. Once it's stuffed, tie a ribbon or string around the top of the stocking so that no one can peek. Sit in a circle and pass it around to let everyone feel what's inside. Give them note cards so that they can write down their guesses. The person who guesses the most correct items wins.
Form two teams based on how many players there are. Place a Christmas stocking for each team on the other end of the room. The players will then race to their team’s stocking with a spoonful of candy, deposit the candy and return it to their team. This relay continues until one team fills up their stocking to win the game
