Welcome back to year 6 of our Festive Christmas Event where we team up with a bunch of talented blogging friends to bring you a plethora of creative ways to celebrate your holiday season. We will be baking some cookie recipes for you, sharing some party games, making some handmade gifts, doing some ornament crafting, and sharing our Christmas movies family fun. There will be breakfast recipes and as always our decorated Christmas Trees which is always a fun tour of homes. New this year is Gift Guides. We are right there with you shopping from home due to COVID 19 and we understand how hard that can be so we have been busy little Elves doing tons of research to create fabulous Gift Guides to help you with your holiday shopping. You will find new ideas every Monday and Wednesday between Oct. 19th through Nov. 18th. Scroll all the way down to find all the ideas linked at the end.

Here’s what I have shared so far with the event:   Check out the Holiday Gift Guide of Cookbooks Written by Your Favorite Food Bloggers and this one filled with Holiday Gift Ideas for the Foodies in Your Life.  If you’re needing a homemade gift to give, I’ve shared these cute Holiday Cookie Mix Gift Sack with Printable Gift Tags. Today, I’ve got a fun and festive holiday party game to share – Bobbing for Candy Canes (check out the video above).

What You Need to Play Bobbing for Candy Canes

wrapped candy canes

Candy Canes – we used about 4 boxes of 12 candy canes

How to Play Bobbing for Candy Canes Christmas Party Game

First to note is that you need to keep the candy canes wrapped.  Spread the candy canes out on the table.  

Candy Cane Bobbing Game with the guys taking a turn


Two players at a time.  Each person picks a candy cane to use a their “hook”. Hold the candy cane in your mouth, with the curved end out. Give each person a bowl to collect their candy canes.  Set a timer for a designated time (we used 30 seconds) and see who can snag the most canes in the specified amount of time. 

If you would like, have a small prize for the one who collects the most candy canes.
