  • Cookie
  • Star
  • Wreath
  • Candy or Candy Cane

Remind your student that many of these items might be found right on the tree! Your student can look closely at ornaments and wrapping paper to find some of the objects.

The Christmas scavenger hunt also includes bonus items to look for. The bonus items are colors: gold, silver, white, red, green, and yellow.

As your student locates each item, have him color it on the printable page provided.

For extra fun, give your student a magnifying glass and allow him to carefully examine the items as he finds them.

Benefits of the Christmas Scavenger Hunt

This scavenger hunt is great as a go-along with your holiday or Christmas theme. It provides many benefits for your student.

  • Scavenger hunts boost observation skills. As your child looks for objects, he will develop better observation skills.
  • Scavenger hunts require movement; this promotes gross motor development.
  • A scavenger hunt can provide safe sensory input for your student (feel the velvety bow, taste the candy cane, smell the pine tree, listen to the bell jingle, etc.)

If you work on the scavenger hunt as a team, it will promote cooperation and social skills development.

Additionally, the bonus items will increase creative and critical thinking skills as your child has to find items in the various colors.
