How do you do a scavenger hunt for Christmas?
It’s very easy to have a scavenger hunt for Christmas. Best of all, you can do it any time during the Christmas season. The beginning of December can welcome Elf on the Shelf for arrival. The end of the season, can lead to a Christmas Eve box.
To set up a scavenger hunt with rhyming clues, first order your Christmas treasure hunt clues. Some of these hints might not fit your home, for example you might not have a garage or fireplace. Omit those scavenger hunt riddles and add only the clues you have. Once your scavenger hunt clues are numbered in order, begin to lay them around your home for the proper locations. Save the first clue to give it to the scavenger hunt player.
Get into the holiday spirit! One great idea is to make this Scavenger Hunt a Christmas Tradition and leave at the end of the hunt a Christmas Eve Gift with a sweet note from your Elf saying good-bye or how wonderful their “nice” behavior has been. Adapt it to your needs, your wants and yours desires. Use with our without an Elf on the Shelf doll.

Elf on the Shelf Christmas Tradition
Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas Tradition. The tradition has a book and a Scout Elf doll. The book is poetic and in rhyme shares the purpose of the Elf’s visits looking for boys and girls that are naughty and nice. Each Thanksgiving, your frailly elf returns until Christmas Even. Scout Elf returns from the North Pole each evening and can be found in a new Elf location in the house in the money. It is important, the Elf is not touched each evening or his Christmas magic will be lost! Each family is able to name their special elf. An Elf’s Story can also be found on DVD.
