When creating a fun-filled Christmas birthday party or a warm, family Christmas get together, you'll want to be sure to have some party games at the ready, especially if you're going to have kids at your party. No need to worry about boredom setting in if you plan some activities ahead of time. A neighborhood scavenger hunt with an emphasis on Christmas, is a perfect activity that will keep your guests busy and entertained. It can easily be adapted to fit a younger crowd, but is also a perfect choice for a slew of teens with time on their hands!

You'll want to start by creating a list of Christmas-related items for your guests to obtain in the neighborhood. Split everyone up into teams and turn them loose. If appropriate, assign an adult to accompany each team.
