Kids as young as preschool age start recognizing and discussing their five senses. Use this holiday season as a great time to discuss sight, sound, taste, smell and touch in a unique way. Download this printable 5 Senses Christmas Scavenger Hunt as another activity your elf on the shelf can leave the kids one December morning.

Yes! I’m back with another free printable to entertain your kids! Unlike my Nature Scavenger Hunt, this 5 senses Christmas Scavenger Hunt doesn’t include any pictures, only words for each item on the list. That’s because it’s a great activity to inspired creative thinking by your child! UPDATE: I’ve removed my URL at the bottom so feel free to print and gift without any suspicion!
Each item of this scavenger hunt includes an item discovered by one of the 5 senses. For example: your child might see a jingle bell as “something metal” or that same item could be “something that makes noise”. Cookies can be “something that smells sweet” or candy canes can be “something striped.”
The 5 Senses Christmas Scavenger Hunt printable is great to be read by your first/second graders but could easily be done by a preschooler if you read them each point. It is a great activity for a Christmas party, morning activity from your Elf on the Shelf or something to do Christmas eve to pass the time on a highly antsy night.
This printable is just one of many I’ve offered over the years and will be included on my soon-to-be-released Elf on the Shelf Ideas for a 7 year old schedule due out soon! I’ve listed as few of my other free printables below and the others can all be found here.
