@ChocolateLime:  What about a kids card game, like Go Fish or Old Maid? I seem to remember playing those around 6 years old or so – I think they even make sets that don’t use numbers (pictures instead). Maybe (non-obscure) Christmas trivia?

What about a matching game of sorts. My brother is 21 and has the mentality of a 8 year old. I know exactly where you are coming from! Maybe make cards up and pass them out. Totally thinking off the top of my head here… The cards could have pictures of things each person likes/hobbies/ etc. Then you have to match the cards with the person, whoever matches the most right wins? Now that I just typed it, it sounds dumb… UGH I tried ๐Ÿ™‚

How are his motor skills?  Some people with CP still have some fine motor function… it depends on the severity… anyway, what about a cookie decorating contest?  My grandma has the little kids over every year to make cookies starting from dough.  They roll it out, use cookie cutters, put sprinkles on it, bake it, frost it, etc… they make one hell of a mess but they do have a lot of fun.

Instead of a competitive game, could you sing Christmas Carols or take turns telling stories from holidays past?  Could you guys make ornaments with photos or something crafty (depending on the motor skills of your brother)?

It’s sweet of you to include him!  I hope you guys find something fun for everyone to do ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t know the extent of your brother’s physical disabilities (if any), but we go bowling with all 30+ of us on Christmas night after dinner every year. For the kids/your brother, you could put up the bumpers to make it more fun. It’s become a nice little tradition for us.
