Are you looking for a fun game for your annual family Christmas party? This Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt will do the trick!
We played this Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt as a prelude to our annual family Christmas party (to get the excitement started early) and it was a big hit! If your family is in any way competitive, there will be lots of excitement!
This is a photo scavenger hunt. No one has to bring back anything. Just have everyone use their Smart phones to snap pics of the displays.
Needed to play
Smartphone for taking and sending pictures
Social media event page (Facebook or Instagram make it very easy to upload pictures and have an ongoing conversation)
How to Play
We started the game about a week before the actual party.
We created an event page on Facebook where everyone could upload the pictures as they found the items on the list.
I kept track of everyone’s progress myself but they can also see each other’s progress on the event page. (It is entirely possible that a very competitive person will wait and upload all of their pictures at one time!)
Variation: You can make the rules however you wish to suit your crowd. If you want to pick teams and all load up into vehicles and head out to do it all in one night, you can!
Because we did our family scavenger hunt game competition over a week’s time, there were text messages flying, ramping up the competition for the whole week!

If you really want to make it competitive, wait until the day of the party to release a couple of additions to the list so that everyone has to find those items on the way to the party.
