A crazy Christmas scavenger hunt is perfect for an office party or a family Christmas party.
Give each guest a numbered sheet of paper and a pencil. Let them know how many crazy Christmas items they are looking for. When a guest thinks they have located every item have them bring their list to you for verification. The first person to find all of the items is the winner.
You may also choose to set a time limit. In that case, the person with the most items at the end of the allotted time is declared the winner.
Note: Crazy Christmas scavenger hunt items must be noticeably odd, yet fit in well enough that they don't stand out immediately. They must be left sitting or hanging around the room as if they were meant to be there. Using colors that blend in with your Christmas decor, when making changes to the items, will cause them to be harder to spot. Below is a list of examples for you to use.
01. Santa in a outfit other than his traditional one (eg. a dress, an elf suit).
02. A pair of Christmas panties hanging in the tree as if they were an ornament.
03. A candle placed upside down in a candle holder.
04. An angel with a square halo. Note: A square halo can be made from wire or pipe cleaners.
05. Rudolph with a green nose. (Paint over his nose with water based paint so that you can wipe it off later).
06. A gift or closed box with wrapping paper and tape place on top and a note saying, "Wrap it yourself."
07. A partially eaten candy cane hanging in the tree.
08. A snowman wearing a cowboy hat.
09. A star with no points. Square off the points by cutting the tips off. Cut enough off so that the star doesn't look pointed, but not so much that it no longer looks like a star.
10. A nativity scene made up of barbie dolls.
11. Put out a plate of cookies and a glass of pop (or any other beverage than milk) with a note to Santa beside it.
A fourth wise man in the nativity creche or an animal that doesn't belong like an stork or elephant.
