Christmas Scavenger Hunt List

December is a great time to plan fun activities, so here’s a Christmas scavenger hunt list idea to help you plan one.

Due to how easy it is to find Christmas items at this time of year, we’d recommend making this an item scavenger hunt, where players have to collect all the items.

An alternative would be to plan it as a photo scavenger hunt – this is where players take photos of all the items instead of physically collecting them, but this version might be too easy.
