Free Printable Christmas Scavenger Hunt Clues

Use these free printable Christmas treasure hunt clues for a super fun way to find Christmas gifts! Have a scavenger hunt on Christmas morning, or organize a holiday party featuring the clue cards.

When my girls were a lot younger, we were going on a cruise shortly after Christmas and they needed luggage of their own. It was way too big too wrap and put under the tree, and it wasn’t from Santa Claus who typically leaves gifts out unwrapped on Christmas morning. I could have made some Christmas bags to wrap them with, but instead I decided to have a Christmas scavenger hunt instead.

I came up with scavenger hunt clues that led the kids all over the house until they finally found their new luggage in the shower. They had so much fun finding their treasure that it quickly became a favorite family christmas tradition.
