Rudolph’s Reindeer Games Holiday Interactive Yard


Rudolph’s Reindeer Games Holiday Interactive Yard 

This year we decided to host Rudolph’s Reindeer Games Holiday Interactive Yard in our very own front yard for our neighborhood. Read along to see how we pulled it off!

You may be asking yourself, what exactly is the Rudolph’s Reindeer Games Holiday Interactive Yard? Well, this was an idea that I dreamed up as a theme for our front Christmas yardscape this year, and it is also an interactive BINGO game for our neighborhood, so we can share a little holiday cheer.Reindeer Pin Set Up JENRON DESIGNSWe are so lucky to live in a very active neighborhood when it comes to doing things for the holidays. We have several neighbors that are happy to join in and make the holidays extra special, in addition to a social committee for the entire neighborhood as well.Grinch Set Up JENRON DESIGNSWe decided this year our exterior home Christmas theme would be the Reindeer Ranch. Which then became a reindeer pin where they would play “reindeer games”,  Rudolph’s reindeer games, you know like the holiday song.Bingo Card For Game JENRON DESIGNSWe then wanted the game to be all inclusive, since that is the whole idea of Rudolph joining the reindeer games, so we made it a BINGO game for the whole neighborhood. We purchased 5 part BINGO cards so we could have up to 5 weeks of BINGO leading up to Christmas.Bingo cards JENRON DESIGNSWe then placed BINGO numbers out every night, called by the Grinch. He is a fixture at our house now. Last year he came back after 5 years and really played havoc on our home, stealing our tree and taking our wreaths on a nightly basis. So, by popular request we asked if he would call the BINGO numbers for us.Bingo Numbers as Reindeer Cattle Tags JENRON DESIGNSThat might have been a mistake since he adds a few challenges to the game by adding nonexistent numbers or random words not actually located on the BINGO cards. To make it Interactive for the kids we added BOGO numbers on the backs of some of the cards, which are extra freebie numbers they get just for stopping by, instead of waiting for the numbers to post on our Facebook community page 24 hours later. Hey, the early bird gets the worm, right? Reindeer Lollipoops JENRON DESIGNS Plus there are Friday Fun days added in as well, like pick up the Grinchy Green Reindeer Lollipoops, Candy Cane & Seek, Baby it’s Cocoa-Cold Outside, The Great Fun Dip Toss & Red Nose Night! These days the kids and adults get a free sweet treat around the yard, for stopping by, on a first come first serve basis. Again, those that participate reap the all the bonus rewards. FUNDAY FRIDAY JENRON DESIGNSYes, we even have prizes for all 5 weeks worth of winners. The prizes consist of various gift cards, sweet treats and things you would stuff your stockings with during the holidays. Since we have already had one winner this season, I only have four weeks left to photograph at this point, but you can see these are pretty decent sized bags and gift cards do not take up much space, so game on!Prizes for Reindeer Games JENRON DESIGNSSince the Grinch was the focus we had a LIVE appearance from him on prize days to give the winner there gift bags that we had assembled. He also posed for pictures with the kiddos as well, since he is a good natured Grinch with a heart that has grown 3 sizes. The Live Grinch JENRON DESIGNSOne last question we were asked since my husband is on the board for our Homeowners Association is where we being reimbursed for this little adventure? The answer is no, we decided that we wanted to personally host and fund this event ourselves to give back to our community from us, just to spread holiday cheer, and everything you see was done on our own accord. I do hope that this post has inspired you to also give back and share a little happiness with your local community as well. Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas everyone!
