I love nativity scenes. I own three already, and I’m always looking for one to add to our yard. Our family loves going to look at Christmas lights together, as I’m sure most families do! Over the many years of this tradition, we have noticed how nativity scene are harder to find, and more Santa Claus and Disney things are making their way into decorations.
A Family Nativity Scavenger Hunt
We started to make it about a game to see who could spot a nativity scene, or baby Jesus first. The kids really were enjoying the hunt we embarked on every Christmas season.
In the attempt to saturate our family with a Christ Centered Christmas, I have created a Family Nativity Scavanger Hunt for us to do together, while keeping that excitement to ‘seek Jesus like the Wise men did long, long ago’.
Get your Family Nativity Scavenger Hunt.
You can print one per family or one per person.
You may want to take a clip board or hard books to use as a hard surface. And don’t forget a pencil or pen to mark off your finds. You may just be surprised how much of a hunt this turns out to be.
Your children may love to dress up as ‘wise men’, as they go out looking for the nativity.
To add to our family tradition, we like to bringing some hot cocoa and snacks, with Christmas music playing in the vehicle!
I hope your family will enjoy the hunt as much as we will.
