How to Play The Christmas Present Game:
1. Arrange everyone to sit in a circle. Ask for a volunteer to start the game. Hand the volunteer the two oven mitts and have the person wear the mitts.

2. Explain the goal of the game: The person with the oven mitts will have 5 seconds to open the present. After 5 seconds, the person will hand over the mitts to the person to their right. The next person will also have 5 seconds to open the present, and so forth until the present is completely unwrapped. The person who unwraps the present wins the present inside the box.

3. Repeat the game using the other Christmas presents.
