Elf Scavenger Hunt

Santa’s elves are watching you… The kids will love to go on an elf scavenger hunt!

When my kids were younger, I hid elf images around the house in the beginning of December.

I put them in hard to find places. Some in spots that they would only find if they did some extra chores. Sounds mean? Nah, it just made it more fun… for me. Ha ha.

If your kids are really young you don’t want to make it too hard.

You could also do this as a Christmas party activity. The young and maybe some older guests too would enjoy looking for the elves. I would certainly have fun going on an elf scavenger hunt.

My kids are all teenagers or young adults but I think I’ll do the elf scavenger hunt this year. Perhaps there will be a reward for finding the most…


1. Hide the Elves

It’s super simple, just print the images. Cut and hide.

You’ll get twelve elves:

2. Find the Elves

Give each person the scavenger hunt page or attach one to the fridge or pantry door… or wherever.

Check off the elves you’ve found.

Alternative: Ask the finder to take the image they found and give it to you or put it in a jar. You could also use tiny clothes pins to hang up the found elf images.
