Gifts for large groups of kids can be hard to find. Many toys seem to be geared to individual children or, at most, small groups of two or three. If you look hard enough, however, there are quite a few games and activities for large groups of children that will make parents and kids alike happy. Use these Christmas gifts to delight large groups of children and to encourage the children to play together rather than apart.

Board Games

Board games are typically designed for multiple players, which makes them especially useful when they are given to large groups of kids. Choose games that are designed for large groups or teams, such as Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit and Twister. You can also choose some non-traditional board games, such as strategy games and puzzle games. Board games are fun ways for large groups of children to spend time together. Choose games based on the age level and interests of the children.


Craft toys can be used to occupy large groups of children as well. Painting or drawing supplies, chalk, pottery craft supplies, model building kits, sewing kits, scrapbooking kits and many other craft toys can be played with by multiple children at once. One advantage to using this type of toy with groups of children is that they are educational and teach children how to share and work together.

Outdoor Toys

Outdoor toys are perfect for large groups of kids. Many sports, including volleyball, croquet, badminton and basketball, are designed for large play groups. If you can give multiple toys, skates, bicycles and other riding toys can also work well as group gifts. Additionally, a large trampoline is always a hit with groups of children. Water toys, pools and sprinklers also lend themselves well to group play.

Competitive Toys

Competitive toys make great gifts for large groups of children. Laser tag, water balloons, water pistols and other competitive toys enable large groups of children to have fun playing together. Choose toys that are safe and easy for children to use and will not cause harm to children during play. Always choose age-appropriate toys for children. Most competitive toys work best with children over 8 years of age.
