Create a holiday scavenger hunt for your family (VIDEO)

Make discovering your city a family affair with this clever map idea

Get out of the house and get to know your city better, all while bonding with the ones you love.

Spice up your family time by having everyone put away their smartphones and take a day trip around your city. Turn it into a good cause by getting items in each spot and creating a basket to be donated to charity.

Find a map of your city

The best type would be a more detailed map, and don't even think about defaulting to Siri — that takes away the fun.

Add stickers of the landmarks where your family will go

Make sure the stickers are small enough to still be able to read street names and addresses.

Create a list of what you will be hunting for

Toys, fun knickknacks, souvenirs or photo ops — it's completely up to you.

Grab a basket to put all of your finds in

You choose the size, but make it fun!

Don’t forget a camera to capture all the memories made

Family selfies with all the cool adventures you had — like a mini vacation album.
