Santa’s Christmas Puzzle Mystery



Santa’s Christmas Puzzle Mystery

Supplies: Camera, photos, planning and craft supplies



This is a Christmas scavenger hunt type game where you challenge teams (tables) or individuals to find out where Santa’s elves have hidden the toys / Christmas gifts. First you set the stage by sharing the Santa doesn’t know where the gifts are and needs help else there may not be a Christmas.

The good news is the elves had left clues so they would remember where the toys are, but one of our favorite elves Patty Puzzle thought they were toys and cut them all up! Now we need your help to find out where the toys are.

Now you give out envelopes with a puzzle to each team. Once the puzzle is finished it should give a hint to where the toys / gifts are. Once completed the team can go and find the gifts. Note: Each team can be sent to a different location if everyone gets a gift, this is a fun way to play.

You can play this as the first team to find the gifts wins or maybe someone from that team has a shot to win a bigger prize. (Vary as needed.)

If playing with kids, you can set this up as a scavenger hunt and have several photo puzzle clues. So one puzzle clue resolved leads to another puzzle clue. This will keep the kids busy and once the gifts are found, there would be a gift for each child.

So How to Prep for the Game:
1. Plan where to hide the gifts first and then take photos of the hiding place. Helps to have 1 or 2 gifts in the photograph place have a green glove on so it has an elf touch to it.

2. Have photos printed and choose 8 x 10 or larger for groups. You can do small if for just kids. Now you need cut up the photos into squares. (1, 1.5 or 2 inch blocks) and place into an envelope. If you want to make it really tricky turn the photo into a real puzzle, this is great for office events because it is a huge challenge.

3. Now just decide whether you are solving one puzzle or if you are creating a photo scavenger hunt.

4. Make sure you place presents at the hiding place. If you want have the toys in a sack and have whoever finds it to bring it to Santa to get a reward and then Santa can give a special gift to those that find the gifts and then hand out the rest.

This Christmas game is easily adaptable for office parties, small gatherings where you have kids or it can be a fun indoor event on the weekend for families.
