A elf scavenger hunt for kids. 12 elves will be hidden around the market. Children will be given a sheet at the entrance and when they find an elf, the vendor will stamp their sheet. If they find at least 10 elves by the end of the market, they can turn in their sheets for a free kids crafts goodie bag to take home. It will be full of coloring pages, worksheets, stickers, and DIY ornaments. You don't want to miss out on the FREE goodies!
Due to COVID, we will not be having children write letters to Santa at the market. We will have the North Pole mailbox, however, so if want to bring their letter with you, they can place it in the mailbox. A fillable letter will also be included in the free kids craft bags so they can fill it out at home!
