If you are planning on a house filled with tweens and teens for the holidays- this Christmas Scavenger Hunt is a fun thing for them to do while waiting to open presents! It's a great way to get them to talk to one another without having to ban their phones!
Kids seem to want to be on their phones all of the time! Asking them to find something else to do leads to 30 seconds of doing something else and then the hand with the phone creeps up again.
And who wants to nag their children on Christmas? Not me!
The best way to get kids to engage with other humans face-to-face is to give them something specific to do! So how about a fun photo scavenger hunt game?
How to Set Up the Christmas Scavenger Hunt
This Christmas Photo Scavenger Hunt is perfect for kids to play in teams. Divide them into groups of 2-4 kids and set them off with the list of items to find, and of course, a phone to take pictures!
Give them a time limit- and have them report back, checking off the pictures of the items they found!
You can award prizes for completing the list, best photos, etc.
What You'll Need for Your Christmas Scavenger Hunt:
You'll want to print off your photo scavenger hunt lists in advance, maybe put them onto a clipboard, and have some pencils on hand for checking off the items.
