Hallmark Christmas Movies Scavenger Hunt
How to Print the Scavenger Hunt Game Cards
- Get the free printable Hallmark Christmas Movies Scavenger Hunt pdf. Simply sign up for our free newsletter and promptly receive an email with the scavenger hunt pdf so you can print it and start playing right away.
- You can use regular computer paper, but I prefer to use white card stock paper because it’s sturdier. If you’re using these scavenger hunt cards for a party, be sure to use card stock paper because it’s just a bit more luxurious.
- You can print as many copies as you’d like.
- Please share the link to this post rather than the pdf if you’d like to share with family or friends.
How to Play a Hallmark Christmas Movies Scavenger Hunt
- Give each player their own game card. If you have more than 10 players you can either print multiple copies of the Hallmark Christmas movie scavenger hunt cards and pass them out or have players team up to create 10 teams.
- Give players a clipboard and pen or marker.
- Determine whether the winner will be the one to complete the entire card first or the one to complete the most blocks.
- You can also use the scavenger hunt game cards as bingo cards. The winner will be the first to complete all the blocks in a row or column.
- If you’re binge watching, you can use the same card until it’s completed or start a new card with each new movie.
What are we waiting for?! Let’s get ready and settle in for many happy weeks of Hallmark Christmas movies watching with a scavenger hunt this year. Pin for later so you can find these game cards year after year for yourself and to share with friends.
