Christmas Scavenger Hunt Clues – More Family Tradition Fun!

Christmas season is the perfect time to create memories and begin lasting family traditions. One tradition from my own childhood which I mentioned before is a Christmas Scavenger Hunt. My daughters now love following the scavenger hunt clues, and my husband still creates a hunt for me to enjoy as well! Enjoy using these Christmas scavenger hunt clues to hide your kids’ gifts and create new lasting family memories and traditions!

Ready for fun on Christmas morning? Start a new family tradition by hiding a gift and giving your kids a Christmas Scavenger hunt clues! Fun for all!

A brief little info on how to use the clues:

Wrapped Gift = Clue #1 — directs them to kitchen (bowl)
Bowl = Clue #2 — directs them to tv
TV = Clue #3 — directs them to gloves
Gloves = Clue #4 — directs them to book
Book = Clue #5 — directs them to dryer
Dryer = GIFT!

This is just a sample hunt. You can use as few or as many of the clues as you want. Just make sure your final clue leads to a location that can hold the gift! You can then wrap the gift if you want or let them find it unwrapped. I’m also including the blank templates so you can write your own clues if wanted.

I'm so glad I found this post this year! With the lockdown, and both of my kids now being teenagers (and really not wanting anything except gift cards), I've been trying to find creative ways to give them their gifts. I'm going to set up a scavenger hunt for each of them, and am so looking forward to it. Thank you for the great idea and the downloadable cards!! : )

That's great, Shauna! I hope they enjoy it. My teens still love it every year!

Don’t mean to be a Debbie downer but a scavenger hunt means you have to find certain things on a list at neighbors homes or businesses and bring them all back to the starting place. To see if you have them all and they are right. The one she does here is a treasure hunt. Both would be fun to do at Christmas for sure! Have fun everyone!

My family always called it a scavenger hunt. I think people have different terms for different things. Thanks for your input!
