Rudolph's Christmas Scavenger Hunt
by Jean Heasley
(City of Mustang )
We did this Christmas scavenger hunt game for our Community Tree Lighting and over 500 people attended.
You will need some kind of reindeer to place around the facility. I used the ones that are wire with strands of Christmas lights. Any size or style will work. You can even use different styles. I put ribbons around their necks. You could name them but with young kids I did not do this.
We made cute little cards with a place for stickers with each reindeer. We hid the reindeer around our facility, mixed in the decorations etc..
At each reindeer was a small basket with stickers in them. Once the children had found all of the reindeer (at anytime in the evening - not a race) they brought back the card to staff.
At the end of the event we simply had a drawing for several prizes (kids decided what prize drawing box they wanted to be in).
One of the prizes was a big stuffed Rudolph. Very popular prize.
This was easy and fun with a big crowd.
