"Christmas Gift Hunt"

The grandkids finding a clue
My two grandchildren had a wonderful time on this Christmas Scavenger Hunt. My husband (Grandpa) and I bought them a basketball hoop for Christmas and set it up in our garage. We wrapped two basketballs up to put under the Christmas tree which they opened first. We saved one tiny box for the last gift with the "start" of the hunt taped to the top. They really enjoyed running around the house and even their parents, aunts and uncles enjoyed watching them on their journey.
This Christmas game can be altered to work with Christmas decorations and locations in your own home. Hope you enjoy the rhyme and creating a hunt for the children in your life this holiday season.

Tip: If you are sending them outside, make certain the adults that want to be in on the fun are geared up with boots on. The grandkids weren't too excited about waiting as they threw their boots on and went running out the door. :-) Luckily Grandpa and others had already headed out!
