Our Christmas Scavenger Hunt Game For 7 to 12 Year Olds

GREAT VALUE!! This creative, fun Christmas scavenger hunt includes a step by step organizer guide, award certificates, invitations, thank you notes, support from the game designer & more.

OVERVIEW

This Christmas scavenger hunt is designed with a house full of kids in mind. Your group will be divided into teams of up to 6 kids each. Each team will receive a collection bag containing the rules of the game, the game instructions and challenges, and other supplies.

There are three parts to this game...

You may choose to skip a component, depending on how much time you have. To customize the scavenger hunt, you can easily add additional items, pictures and projects to the list. Use our ideas as templates for your own hunt.

Part One: The Scavenger Hunt

RUDOLPH is missing and it is almost Christmas Eve!  Santa has asked the teams to try to find him!   

The children will follow clues to find 10 little gift boxes that are hidden around your house, yard, and/or neighborhood. In each box is a clue to find Rudolph. The goal is for the teams to figure out the clues and be the first to figure out where Rudolph is. We provide an alternate location list just in case you need it.

Alternate idea if Santa and Rudolph won’t work for you: Frosty the Snowman has lost his magic hat and will melt without it. Can you find it for him?

Clue Example: In ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, where were the children nestled? (Hide the gift boxes in a bed under the covers or under a pillow.)

Part Two: “Name That Tune…”

Inside of their collection bag, the teams will find a sheet with silly pictures.  They will look at the pictures and try to determine which Christmas songs are being represented.  Points are given for each correct song named.

Part Three: The Projects

The children will end the hunt by completing various Christmas projects. There are 3 projects; you can choose to do 1, 2 or all 3. One project example is to decorate a gingerbread house as a team. 

To customize the scavenger hunt, you can easily add additional items, pictures and projects to the list. Use our ideas as templates for your own hunt.

NUMBER OF TEAMS / PARTICIPANTS

Unlimited participants (so long as you have the space and support). Three to eight kids per team.

What if you only have a few kids participating in this Christmas scavenger hunt? Instead of dividing them into teams, you can keep them all on one team and have them race against the clock, giving the single team a time limit to complete each section of the hunt, report back to you and bribe you for the next section and so on until the hunt is complete.

AGE RANGE

This Christmas scavenger hunt is for 7 – 12 year olds.

LENGTH OF THE HUNT

About 1 ½ hours plus an additional 10-15 minutes to add scores, determine winners, and give out prizes.  You can choose to leave out or add certain activities based on your time frame.

PRE-HUNT PREP TIME

For up to six teams, you can put our Christmas scavenger hunt together in about 4 – 6 hours (includes shopping for supplies, reading the scavenger hunt and prepping the materials); as you add teams, you’ll need to add time to the pre-hunt prep. You mostly need to print (and perhaps edit) the documents included with the kit, pack the collection bags and shop for team prizes as well as other inexpensive supplies like clipboards, small gift boxes, project supplies and such. Our facilitator guide provides a supply checklist for you.

THIS CHRISTMAS SCAVENGER HUNT INCLUDES FRIENDLY, HELPFUL SUPPORT BY EMAIL ALONG WITH MASTER COPIES OF:

WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO BUY/PROVIDE: Team collection bags (plastic shopping bags or something fancier – your choice) and other inexpensive items (like small gift boxes, a stuffed toy reindeer and prizes).  We’ll let you know exactly what you need to get in our handy facilitators’ guide that comes with this scavenger hunt.
