Santa Scavenger Hunt: The Grouch Who Stole Christmas

Our Christmas Scavenger Hunt is also a Santa Meet & Greet Event!

The Grouch Who Stole Christmas

The Christmas “Grouch” is on The Loose at Alsip Home & Nursery!

A mean-green Christmas “Grouch” is trying to steal Christmas! And what better way to stop Christmas, than to kidnap Santa Claus himself!

Your group will need to uncover all of the Christmas Clues to put a stop to the Grouch’s plans during our Santa Scavenger Hunt. Find Santa. Save Christmas!

How The Scavenger Hunt Works

  • The Scavenger Hunt may take anywhere from 30-40 minutes, depending on how quickly you wish to complete it/find the clues.
    (The last timeslot group MUST complete their scavenger hunt no later than 2:00 PM, that’s when Santa is flying back to the North Pole.)
  • From there, each child will receive a Playcard and the 1st Clue to the Santa Scavenger Hunt!
  • Travel around the store from one clue to the next, filling out your Playcard with each Christmas Clue sticker you find!
  • You’ll make your way through all 10 clues around the store, the last of which you’ll find Santa, saving him from the Christmas Grouch!
  • The Scavenger Hunt is self-guided, however if you get stuck – feel free to ask the attendant who checked you in.
  • Once your group finds Santa Claus, you’ll get to meet with him, take photos (one photostrip included) and receive your Christmas Craft and $5 Alsip Gift Card.
