Christmas Scavenger Hunt
When I was little, one of the best parts of Christmas day was the scavenger hunt my parents led me on in search of a special gift.  We’d gather around the Christmas tree to celebrate the holiday and give our gifts to each other.  Like every kid, I, of course, loved it! 
But the true icing on the cake was when my parents would announce that there was still one more gift to open… one very special gift… a hidden gift! 
They’d hand me the beginning clue and send me on my merry way searching and finding clue after clue until I finally found that last gift.  Sometimes it was that one gift I’d been begging for and other times it was something more simple, but still meaningful. 
Today I’d like to help you plan your own Christmas scavenger hunt!  I’ve developed a scavenger hunt creator that makes the perfect scavenger hunt for any occasion including Christmas.  Check out our Christmas website, Christmas Scavenger Hunt, for more ideas and clues on how to host a Christmas party that involves a scavenger hunt that your entire family will love.  I know I loved it as a child and now my children love it, too.  Perhaps it will be the start of a new tradition for your family!
