This shop and Christmas Morning Scavenger Hunts has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, MARS Incorporated. All opinions are mine alone.
The other day a friend asked about holiday traditions on Facebook. What people’s holiday traditions were, and ideas on new Christmas traditions she could start.
It got me thinking about our traditions and how much I love them. Both the holiday traditions I’ve carried on from childhood, and ones I’ve started.
Our Christmas Morning Scavenger Hunts tradition is a fairly a new one I started a few years ago. Do you have any holiday traditions you’ve carried on or started?
Christmas Morning Scavenger Hunts
My holiday tradition of Christmas Morning Scavenger Hunts has become a favorite of my kids, especially a Christmas Stocking Scavenger Hunt. It melds both a childhood favorite and a new tradition together.
Growing up, “Candy Storybooks” were something I always received in my stocking. A tradition I have carried on with my own kids.
A new tradition I’ve started with those Candy Storybooks are Christmas Morning Scavenger hunts! They lead to their stockings with Candy Storybooks tucked inside, among other things.
You would think stuffing stockings would be easy but it’s always my last thing to complete. What about you?
It’s hard to pick just one of the Holiday Storybooks for the stockings, so I got one of each! How fun will that be?!
Mega fun if you ask me! With a Christmas Morning Storybook Scavenger Hunt and themed clues that lead to each Storybook they are sure to let mama catch a few more minutes of sleep on the couch, right?
Don’t worry, I’ve got your back. I made our Christmas Morning Scavenger Hunts printable!
There is one that leads to stockings with Candy Storybooks and one that leads just to Candy Storybooks in case your family doesn’t use stockings.
Christmas Morning Scavenger Hunts
The scavenger hunt clues for Christmas morning start off leading to the Starburst® Storybook. This year’s Storybook includes a holiday selfie frame so you can send #SweetSelfie greetings to friends and family. For that reason, this book and clue can be hidden somewhere that you charge your phone.
From there, the clue leads you to the Life Savers® Sweet Storybook on a bookshelf, of course. This is the one I always received as a child, and I’m loving the new look and story it has this year!
Next up is the Life Savers Gummies® Sweet Game Book and Crafts! Inside you will find trivia, word find, maze, and gingerbread craft. Can you say “hello, chance to brew a cup of coffee to keep up with the Christmas morning rush” time?
Because of the gingerbread craft, this book and scavenger hunt clue will be hiding with the baking ingredients.
Finally, the last Storybook before the stocking, is the Skittles® Book of Awesome! This includes a #SkittlesBeard that you can use for a selfie to share with your friends. Because of that, this book and clue will be hiding in the bathroom.
Not only are these Holiday Storybooks the perfect stocking stuffers, they are also a great way to create some excitement for older kids that are “too old” to believe in Santa.
Grab one or both of these Christmas Morning Scavenger Hunts below, or save them for later! Rember, one has clues you can leave with holiday storybooks along the way, and the other has clues without storybooks, leading to stockings.
