This New year, play a New Year’s Eve scavenger hunt with your friends and family. Kids can search for items in your home, at a New Year’s Eve party, or while watching the ball drop.
Whether you are attending a NYE party with your family, watching the ball drop at home, or going to see fireworks, this New Year’s Eve scavenger hunt game is perfect for the whole family. The kids won’t be bored while the grown-ups hang out.
Encourage kids to search for New Year’s Eve items – such as the countdown, party poppers, and noisemakers – while they are at a party, a firework show, or watching the ball drop.

HOW TO PLAY A New Year’s Eve SCAVENGER HUNT
So, how do you play a New Year’s Eve Scavenger Hunt? Be creative! There are so many ways to play that I’ll only share a few of my favorite scavenger hunt ideas:
- Party Game – While the adults are sitting and talking at a NYE party, entertain the kids with a scavenger hunt game. The kids can compete or collaborate to see how many items they can find at the party.
- Celebrating NYE at Home – Staying home this year? Challenge younger kids to seek and find each item on the scavenger hunt. They can search around the house and while watching New Year’s Eve festivities on TV. With older children, compete to see who has the sharpest eye and can find all of the items, first!
- Firework Show – A scavenger hunt during the firework show is a next-level challenge – after all, it’s in the dark! See what you can find in the fireworks (are they shaped like snowflakes?) and in what people have around you (noisemakers? party hat? etc.).
Did you know? All of our Scavenger Hunt Games include the picture and the word so that any kid can play, even if they haven’t learned to read.
