Setting up the Christmas treasure hunt is easy. Just follow the instructions below for a quick setup!

  1. Print out the treasure hunt clues (get the free printables below), I recommend printing on white card to make the cards a bit more durable and then you can keep them for years to come. Although they work just as well on paper.
  2. Cut out the clues. I purposely didn’t number them so you can do what is best for your house.
  3. Get a sheet of paper and answer the clues from the 12 treasure hunt clues. Then organise it in such a way that the clues are all in different rooms. Write the number on the back of each clue so when you are hiding the clues you don’t get confused.
  4. Hide all of the clues, and remember to put a gift or a treat after the last clue.

How the Christmas Scavenger Hunt Works

Now that the treasure hunt clues have been set up, completing the scavenger hunt is even easier!

Simply give the first treasure clue card to the children and let them follow the clues to the end.

If you are doing this with multiple children, there are two fun ways you can do it:

  • Split them into teams, and the first team goes but makes sure once the clues have been read they put them back where they found them. (It is always best to check afterwards though) And you time to see which team completed it first.
  • All the kids go round together and they take it in turns to work out where the next clue is.
