55 Best Christmas Icebreaker Questions (Free Printable)

Help melt away the awkwardness at your next holiday gathering with these fun Christmas icebreaker questions.

So you’re finally having the extended family and even some friends over for Christmas.

There will be lots of planning and excitement, but for some people, especially teenagers, making small talk isn’t always something they look forward to. This is where having some Christmas icebreaker questions available comes in really handy.

Print out some ice breakers questions, and let each child at the Christmas party choose a couple of questions they like. Their task is to go up to someone at the party (they can choose) and ask them one of their icebreaker questions. It might be fun to give young kids a Christmas cookie for every interesting answer they can come back and tell you.

The younger tweens will most likely run up to gran and gramps, or their favorite aunt or uncle, and readily start engaging.

Older teens probably won’t be as eager, but having a couple of questions in their back pocket, will help them when long-lost Aunt Regina suddenly pops up and starts asking them loads of personal questions.

Having a couple of ice breaker questions ‘in your back pocket’ so to speak, will help anyone that’s shy or awkward in social situations.

So, to help melt away the awkwardness at your next holiday gathering, I’ve come up with these fun Christmas icebreaker questions.

You are welcome to download this Christmas icebreaker questions printable to use during your next Christmas get-together. The questions can be thrown into a hat, and people can draw them as they see fit.

I try to understand what they might be going through in their various stages of development. Communication, understanding, kindness, respect, and leading with love can help us maintain a positive bond with our children, from toddlers to teens and beyond.
