Holiday treasure hunts can happen anywhere. Especially when they have an adaptable checklist that can be personalized for a group of individuals looking to have fun.
Organizing a Christmas scavenger hunt at the office can be a fantastic way to bring holiday cheer to the workplace and is great for team building. Not only will it encourage team bonding and boosts morale among colleagues.

Can I use this holiday scavenger hunt for places other than an office?
Yes! You can use this Christmas hunt anywhere and for any group of people. That’s the beauty of being able to edit the game printable. Add your own fun and flair to the PDF printable, then you can change the audience and venue to wherever it fits the best.

Rules of a Scavenger Hunt
No matter how you want to host this fun scavenger hunt, be sure to set a few ground rules. Adults and kids will get super excited and ready to go, but instructions need to be put into place first.
For a work scavenger hunt or a group scavenger hunt, there are a few options:
- Person vs Person – It’s every person for themself.
- Team vs Team – Small groups will work better for this activity.
- Team vs Time – Have the team race against the clock instead of one another.
Once the participants of each team are chosen, it’s time to move on to the rest of the simple rules.
Time: Set a time limit. How much time does each person/team have?
Proof: How will the proof be shown of items that they find? Photos on their phone? Yelling out to the judge to come see to check off the list? Accountablity? It’s important everyone is on the same page for proving they found the Christmas-themed item on the list.
Questions: Set up a location where someone can be to answer questions or give hints if hints are going to be given.
Points: This holiday game can be totaled with points. One point for each item found. You can have bonus points for those that finish first or submit the item virtually via a photograph first.
Whatever the directions, make sure everyone understands them. Rules can be adjusted and adapted with each use based on age group, available items on the scavenger list, and location. Make sure to communicate the hunt rules to all before the game starts so that there is no confusion as to the expectation or potential outcome.
