The kids in my class love these “I Have, Who Has” card games. There are many of these games that teach skills, but here is a fun version for Christmas. Bring these out when your class gets antsy from all the holiday excitement, or use them for a Christmas party game. You can find more of my “I Have, Who Has” games for Numbers, Shapes, and Wildlife Animals at these links.
I play this game with the class at large group and small group. Once the children understand how to play, I’ll add the cards to a center so children can play on their own. You can even use it as a transition activity by having the kids line up as soon as they have “read” their card and put it in the basket.
“I Have, Who Has” Game Directions
To play, deal out all of the cards to all players in the group. If you play this game at small group, each child will have a set of cards, but if you play it at large group or as a transition activity, only give each child one card. There are 28 cards in this set. I have 22 students in my class, so I would give each child one card, and set aside the other 6. I will read those as needed. At small group, have the children lay out all of their cards on the table so they can see them. The first player chooses any card and reads it. For example, “I have Santa. Who has a sleigh?” That child places that card in the basket, and everyone looks at their cards to see if they have a sleigh. The person who does then says, “I have a sleigh. Who has a Christmas tree?” That child places that card in the basket, and so on. Play continues until all of the cards are in the basket. It shouldn’t matter which card you begin the game with– just make sure all of the cards are used even if you, the teacher, has a few.
