Time for games

GYLES BRANDRETH AND HIS DAUGH­TER SAETHRYD co-wrote The Lost Art of Hav­ing Fun (John Mur­ray). Ask guests to bring a pho­to­graph of them­selves as a baby Pin the pic­tures to a board and ask ev­ery­one to write down who they think is who. The win­ner is the guest with the most cor­rect guesses. Make a Christ­mas piñata Put a large pa­per bag in­side an­other and fill it with sweets. (You can dec­o­rate the outer bag be­fore­hand with rib­bons and glit­ter.) Tie the bag onto a string and hang from the ceil­ing. Each player takes a turn with a stick to try to bash through the bag. With young chil­dren, it’s gen­er­ally not wise to have more than two or three or­gan­ised games; it’s bet­ter to pro­vide a se­lec­tion of toys. When it comes to older kids, be care­ful not to let the fun get out of hand – in­ter­sperse bois­ter­ous games with some qui­eter ones.
