A New Year's Party Treasure Hunt

If you’re having a treasure hunt at your New Year’s party and you’re looking for clues to use, here are some that utilize holiday places and goods in your home. Send them holiday hunting!

  • Sometimes I’m a powder, sometimes a crystal. But I’ll always make your goodies sweeter. (Sugar bowl or canister)
  • I welcome with a green sprig or a jingle and beckon you in for a holiday giggle. (A wreath hanging on your front door)
  • I am hung with care to make sure that St. Nicholas will soon be there. (Stocking)New Year's Santas
  • I make the presents sparkle with care, yet I will be gone with a few simple tears! (Wrapping paper station)
  • I’m piping hot this time of year. From roasts to cookies, turn me on and watch the temperature rise far and beyond. (Oven)
  • I’m white, puffy, and smooth, and I add fun to your cocoa! (Bowl of marshmallows)
  • Fresh and crisp, tall and green...I add a touch of nature to your merriment. (Christmas tree)
  • With a corncob pipe and a button nose, and two eyes made out of... (Snowman: real, or a decoration)
  • Greetings galore from family, friends, and neighbors both near and far. (Holiday cards)
  • In red and green, blue and silver, I illuminate your room with no more than a flicker. (Holiday candles)

As the guests find each clue, leave festive chocolates and candies for them to enjoy along the treasure hunt path.

The final clue can reveal small wrapped prizes or stickers.

Happy Holiday Hunting!
