For this game, each team will decorate one of its own members as a human Christmas tree using the following: crepe paper streamers, paper ornaments, face paint, color markers, masking tape and a paper star tree-topper. Allow 15 minutes for this game, and then select a best-of-show tree from among the groups. Tips here include using the streamers and masking tape to create a tree shape, creating colorful paper ornaments and attaching the star. Take photos of the human Christmas trees and post these on your youth ministry website and/or Facebook page.
