📜 Number of Players:
We recommend our games be played individually, with a partner, or with up to 4 players. These games are fun for the whole family to play at home (and a chance for siblings to work together).
You can play with more players, however, we recommend printing out enough clues so that every player gets a clue to solve.
✂️ Set-up:To set-up the game, you need nothing more than paper, the provided PDF documents, a printer or printing service, and a pair of scissors. (It is also fun if you have an Elf toy, but it is not necessary). We include directions and an answer key explaining exactly how to set-up the game and hide the clues. We also include 12 Printable Prize cards called "Christmas Coupons."
My grandson loves these. Worth every penny. I spread the sheets over the 3 days he was with us and by hiding the next clue, instead of a treat, it kept him occupied for much longer. (Along the lines of the Pirate treasure hunt.)
My daughters, 5 and 6, have had a blast doing the math activities each morning and finding little treasures or coupons. This is way more fun than their usual advent calendars!
So much fun! I hope you make another one for next year!
This has been so handy in helping with elf duties! On those days when you don’t feel inspired (or just forget), just simply move the elf to a new location and slap down one of these great puzzles/treasure hunts. It gets our child’s brain moving and makes elf time fun and challenging. Only suggestion for next year (PLEASE do this again next year) is to offer an option with elf pics of different skin colors to match our elf (and our son).
My 8 year old looks forward to his challenge every day - and some days are harder than others but he is learning to persevere and problem solve on his own. The prep is easy and quick to do and the "prizes" are just the cherry on top!
