I love the game of Clue. When I was a kid, I was always pretending that I was a detective trying to solve the latest case around the house. In fact, I once made flyers that said I would solve crimes in the neighborhood for 25 cents for each case solved!
I’ll be honest with you- I didn’t make very much at all (thanks for the quarter, Mom!). Kids love mysteries, which is why mystery games, books, and movies are so popular among our children today. Are you looking for something to use for your Christmas lesson this year? I was asked to review a great resource called the Christmas Clue Hunt game! Here is a description of it:
“Christmas Clue Hunt is an adaptation of a classic deduction game that is ideal for use in small groups facilitated by a leader. This lesson-based game helps to uncover the true story of Christ’s birth and Christmas. ‘You and your fellow explorers are searching for clues that tell the story of Jesus’ birth. However, 3 clues are missing! To win this game, you must discover which PEOPLE clue is missing, what LOCATION clue is unknown, and which OBJECT clue is needed to complete the set. During this adventure, as explorers hunt for clues, companion devotional “Fact Sheets” feature Bible verses, discussion questions, and teaching applications. This process illustrates how the clues fit together to shape the Christmas story!'”
Who doesn’t want to play a fun Christmas mystery game? I am recommending this game to anyone who either:
- Wants a fun game to play in their children’s ministry for Christmas, or…
- Might have a slightly less staffed children’s ministry team this holiday season, and needs an easy solution to add to the Christmas children’s program.
Interested? Take a look at the Christmas Clue Hunt game on Kidology.org. Want to win a free copy? I’m doing a contest giveaway starting today and running through December 21st. To enter for a chance to win, simply drop a comment and share one way that you hope to impact a child this Christmas.
