If you're wanting to add a new tradition to your holiday season, give this 12 Days of Christmas Punch Game a try!

This punch game is such a fun thing for the kiddos to look forward to each day. You can fill the cups with pretty much anything. Make a theme, use candy, toys or other fun treats.

This can be made into a party game as well, even for adults. Use a deck of cards for the numbers and the winner of each number gets to punch their cup. If you're doing this for adults, try lottery tickets or mini liquor bottles. 

No matter what you use this punch game for, every one is guaranteed to have a blast! It reminds me of Punch a Bunch on the Price is Right! My favorite childhood game show!

two cups covered with red and green tissue paper.
