Christmas Treasure Hunts

I got inspired to create this nativity Christmas treasure hunt when I realized there wasn’t anything like it out there. I wanted to create something that would be fun and challenging to play, but also actually incorporated the nativity story and focused on learning or remembering the facts. I divided the nativity story into 10 parts. I created a clue out of each of the different parts. Each clue tells part of the story, but leaves out key words and facts that the players must fill in. Once the players fill in the correct answers they will see that some of the letters are circled. These letters must be unscrambled to form a word. That word is the key word and players will look it up on their provided decoder sheet to discover the next clue’s hiding spot.

In this Christmas treasure hunt players will get to:

  • Remember what the real reason for the season is in a fun way
  • Brush up or learn the facts of the nativity story
  • Use their brains and wits to solve puzzles, and each clue to the next until they reach “the Star of Bethlehem” and win the game.
  • Learn other names that Jesus went by along with other important messages of Jesus. This is done through brain teasers and challenges which studies show help people retain the lesson better.
  • Work together as a team to find clues, figure them out, and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

Who can play the nativity Christmas treasure hunt?

This game is great for children of reading age and above. It would even be great to play in mixed teams such as families, or a mixture of kids, teens, and adults. Clue’s are fun to solve, not too easy but not too hard. Plus it’s a unique way to teach the nativity story, plus some other inspirational messages about Jesus.

What does the Nativity Christmas Treasure Hunt Include?

This nativity hunt includes the following

10 clues that involve the nativity story. I divided the nativity story into ten equal parts and created clue’s woven into the story. Players can use their knowledge or you can allow bibles as an aid. Each clue also features a full colored picture that represents that part of the story.

4 Road Blocker Clues These clues are spread out among the nativity clues and feature different brain teasers and puzzles that reveal different messages and names of Jesus.

That number can then be located on the Clue locator sheet which tells players where to look for their next clue.
