Christmas provides a time to focus on spending quality time with family and friends. One way to incorporate fun into a Christmas celebration is to implement dress up games into it. Join the excitement of dress up games with a familiar children's character, such as Tinkerbell, the fairy from “Peter Pan, " for a Christmas celebration that appeals to children and the adults who love them.

Create Christmas and winter clothes by drawing the clothes on paper and cutting them out. Clothing items could include a Santa style hat, scarf or earmuffs. Put all the clothes in the center of the table and have players take turn rolling a die. Each player gets one roll. If she rolls a six she can select a piece of clothing for her character. She must pass the die to the player on the right who also rolls to try to get a six. The first player to add three pieces of clothing for her fairy is the winner.
Gather fairy and Christmas-related costume items for a dress-up race. Find clothing items such as winter and Santa hats, fairy wings, scarves, scepters and gloves. Put an equal amount of clothing items into two piles. Tell players that they are fairies and that they are on a race to see who can get dressed up first to play in the first snow in Neverland. Have two players race to see who can put on all the clothing items the first. If more than two players are playing, divide the group into teams.
Make a Tinkerbell dress up game to play at a Christmas party. Draw a Christmas scene on a poster.

The player who comes closest to getting a hat on a head is declared the winner.
