Basic Holiday Scavenger Hunt Rules:

Holiday scavenger hunts are played the same as a neighborhood scavenger hunt.  Teams go door to door in a neighborhood asking for items from their list.  (Make sure adults are sent with each team.)  Teams collect items from their list and try to get the most items in the time allotted for the game.

To avoid teams going to the same house give each team a section of the neighborhood or if there are only 2 teams give one team the odd numbered houses and the other team the even numbered houses. 

Once the items are collected the first team back to the house within a certain time limit wins.  We usually set ours for 90 minutes.  The teams who get back late are given a penalty - 1 item for every 5 minutes they are late. 

For items that are harder to find you can assign bonus points for those items before the game begins.







We also have traditional scavenger hunt lists for in between the holidays and 8 mall scavenger hunts that also have free item lists to print out.  Great for birthday parties for older children, tweens and teenagers.
