For a fun and exciting way to deliver presents, try a scavenger hunt or treasure hunt! Here, use notes containing riddles, directions, or clues to individual presents to go on a chase for an entire sack of goodies.
A secret scavenger hunt can also be a brilliant way to hide Christmas presents from Santa either within the house or outside in order to evade potential Christmas Eve obstacles.
Wrapping paper or card
A marker pen
Areas to hide presents that are safe and dry, but easy to get to once given a clue.
Make a scavenger or treasure hunt
Technically, a scavenger hunt is when each participant is given a list of items to find, so I guess this is more of a treasure hunt. To make this into a genuine scavenger hunt, give each present hunter a list of clues to the locations of each present, rather than giving a single clue to the next present with each gift.
Chop up the wrapping paper or card to make cards to write your clues.
Start with the first clue to present number 1. Write a clue or riddle or direction to the location of present number 1 on a piece of wrapping paper or card. Place this in an obvious location under the tree.
Place the next present in a hidden location. Write a clue to present 2's location on a card and attach the card to present 1, so that when the first present is found the gift hunter can begin searching for the next gift.
When hunting fro clues, open the clue attached to the present and use it to search for the next gift.
When setting up the game, hide the next gift in the specified location - but make sure the present is safe and dry! And that no one will be able to find it without the clue before the game begins.
When the present is found, open the clue attached to it to hunt for the next present.
Take a basket or bag with you to put the gifts into as you find them.
Continue searching until all of the players have found each component of their treasure/scavenger hunt.
