It’s no secret the holidays won’t be the same this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a wonderful time with your immediate fam. When you’re not watching Christmas movies and stuffing your face with food, you’ll likely turn to games to keep everyone entertained. And when you’re deciding what to play next, why not go for a holiday scavenger hunt? We have all of the Christmas-themed clues to lead everyone to a big surprise, so all you have to do is print them out, hide them, and pick a prize. The game doesn't have to end with a big pile of unopened red and green presents either—the prize could be a plate of cookies, another fun game, or really anything your Christmas-filled heart desires.

Write these instructions down on separate pieces of paper and place them in their dedicated spots around the house. Give your kids (or whoever's hunting!) the first clue, and let them figure out the rest!

Christmas Scavenger Hunt

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good morning! For your first clue, head to the enormous tree in your home that ornaments are adorning.

Reindeer can fly over trees, seas, and moats—you'll find your next clue in the pocket of your coat.

Santa never leaves your door open—not even a smidge! Check for your next clue on a shelf in the fridge.

One of the best parts of Christmas is candy galore! The next clue you find will be stuck to your front door.

There are red and green-wrapped presents for good girls and boys, now check in the place you keep all of your toys.

On Christmas Eve night, Santa Claus enters your house and leaves without a peep! Head to the place you go to get a good night's sleep.

I hope this year you were a good little elf! It's almost time to finish this game, and the next clue's on the shelf.

Christmas is a time that's filled with glee, so look for your prize under your tree!
