Scattergories is one of our favorite family games, we just love it. So we thought we would add to the New Year’s Eve activities for kids by creating our own New Year’s scattergories printables to have fun with.

We always spend New Year’s Eve with the family and playing party games. This free printable is a great game the whole family will love. Younger children can always work together with either an older sibling or a parent.

There are 4 New Year’s scattergories boards to print out and play with, perfect for kids and adults of all ages.

What is scattergories?

Scattergories are a really simple fun word game that can be enjoyed with both kids and adults, therefore making them a great family game.

Every game starts with the same letter and you have to answer the questions (as quickly as possible) that begin with that letter.

The aim is to find an answer that no one else has, so you get bonus points!

New Year’s Scattergories rules

If you are not familiar with the game Scattergories, the object of the game is to fill out a category list with answers that begin with the same letter. You score points if no one else has the same answer.

The official game comes with a 20-sided die with different letters on it. This letter is the first letter of each of your answers on the category list.
