Christmas Scavenger Hunt Ideas

Start a new Christmas tradition this year. These Christmas scavenger hunt ideas are the perfect place to start! Indoor and outdoor ideas for the family.

A few years ago, I added something new to our traditional Christmas activities. I made a set of Christmas scavenger hunt pages for us to use when we went to look at lights on Christmas Eve.

We always put new Christmas pajamas on, make some hot chocolate, and then go look at Christmas lights.

Now, we like to print out the scavenger hunt pages before we go. We even hop out of the car to take a few selfies along the way.
