Real Meaning of Christmas

Now weave each clue (strip of paper) in and around a bow. Repeat with the remaining strips of paper using a new bow each time.

Now hide the bows all around your house. I used the sticky part on the back to stick them to walls and furniture – just remember to hold for about 5 seconds to make sure it really sticks. (in my experience, there was no damage from the sticky part on the furniture)

Christmas Scavenger Hunt

Have your kids hunt for all the Christmas bows.

We had 4 kids searching for 24 bows, so we told them each to find 6. You could always hide a certain color bow in easier locations for younger children while making a different color more challenging for older kids.

Now have the kids pull out their strips of paper to put the Christmas Story back in order.
