I know its a little early for some to be mentioning the C word…I totally get that. However, we have a few resources for you over the next few weeks to get uber ready for a fun time with the kids this Christmas. Today, we have some gorgeous clues for you to create a little elf treasure hunt with the kids at Christmas.

Elves treasure hunt dressed as an elf perhaps?

 In our house, it is a little bit of a traditional to have some form of yummy chocs on Christmas Eve in our advent calendars. Bot the kids have those gorgeous wooden calendars that you can pop your own treats into (link?)…

What are you going to hide on your Christmas Treasure hunt? We hide the choc from the 25th day in our advent!

In recent years, we have made Christmas even that little bit more fun by using riddles and clues, left by the elves, of course, to find that choccy.

The elves write their clues in rhyme; typically 3-5 for each chocolate for each child. We never make it too hard, just a little bit of extra excitement for both kids. Not to mention, the little extra thinking that’s required to solve those clues.

To help your Christmas to be a little bit special, we have got some free treasure hunt clue sheets for you to print out, especially for your little elves.

Clues are blank on one side for you to add your rhymes; with the number of the clue and a little Christmas decoration on the other side. Do make sure that you use a double sided printer to print these out.
