Games around Christmas are a must, families get together and it’s a time when time together needs to be filled with fun and laughter. Chicken Charades is the perfect game this Christmas.
Now we know what you’re thinking, but this take on the classic Charades from University games is a unique and addictive one. You play in teams of two. One person has the card and has to roll the dice and pick the corresponding action to act out with the rubber chicken! The other person has 10 seconds to guess what their partner is acting out with the rubber chicken.
University games have taken something rather amusing and placed it into a perfect game. We love chicken charades and will be playing it rather a lot of the Christmas period. This will be a must have game, one families will enjoy for hours.

The Original Miracle Melting King of Rock
A great addition to 5+ child’s Christmas stocking this year. This really simple pot includes some Elvis inspired accessories (a quiff, a pair of sun glasses, some hands and a microphone as well as a few more) and some white melting putty. You have to shape the putty into the desired shape and insert the accessories wherever you like. Over the space of 30 minutes the putty will melt into a puddle, leaving the accessories spread in a funny position. It can be remade and melted again and again and can be stored in a handy plastic tub. You do have to be wary that it contains small parts so it isn’t suitable to be around children under 36mths. The putty may stain fabrics and isn’t the best thing to get in your hair or put near any pets you may have. Other than the above this is a great and funny gift.
