My friend has been marking time for over a month now as he waits to hear about the new job.
Xmas Party Games
Gift Wrap Twins
This is a game for teams of two, regardless of age.Each team stands side by side, and has their inside hands tied together.The person on the left has his right hand tied to the left hand of the person next to him. Each team is given a box, wrapping paper, ribbon, scissors and tape. With only one hand each, they have to completely wrap the package and tie it with a bow. The team that wraps the package correctly and quickest wins.
