Adventure Santa – A New Christmas Tradition

We love to work with local businesses and discover awesome kid friendly products! And so we were thrilled when Catherine from Adventure Santa reached out to us and asked if we would like an Adventure Santa kit to try with our kids this Christmas.
I have been searching for a way to bring some holiday cheer to our home each day while creating meaningful memories. My family needed something more interactive than an advent calendar and less scary than a character who keeps a watchful eye while deciding whose been naughty and nice.
Starting each morning in December with the magic of Christmas and instilling the spirit of giving was what I was looking for. Adventure Santa did just that!
How It Works
Adventure Santa is a flexible holiday tradition created to fit the needs of your family. You choose the frequency of Santa’s visits and whether or not to hide Adventure Santa for the kids to find or simply place him in the same location each day. The scale and budget of the chosen adventures can be adjusted to fit your time and needs.
The fun begins when the kids find a special note detailing the fun activity for the day that “Santa” left in his adventure pack.
Some of our favorite adventures included:
- Baking and decorating cookies
- Watching Christmas Movies
- Gong on a candy cane hunt
- Taking a Christmas light tour
- Making new ornaments for our tree
- Volunteering as a family
- Making s’mores and hot chocolate
- Shopping for gifts for friends and family
The kit includes:
- An adorable plush Santa with a cute little backpack for adventure notes.
- A sweet story about the origin of Adventure Santa and his mission to bring Christmas joy to families.
- Note cards for writing daily adventure ideas from Adventure Santa.
- A list of adventure ideas that you can use or modify to fit the needs of your family.
Let the Adventure Begin!
Adventure Santa arrived on the first day of December. Watching as my girls discovered our new visitor was pure magic. Curious and excited, we snuggled together to read the story of Adventure Santa. They quickly found the note tucked into his backpack that led us on our first adventure. Our mission was to locate Santa’s reindeer that were visiting children in Minnesota. Eager to begin the journey, my girls packed their adventure bags with snacks, water bottles, and of course Adventure Santa, and we jumped into the car. It was such a fun way to begin the holiday season.
Each morning the girls were excited to search for Santa and see what adventures he had planned for us. I loved hearing my oldest tell me how he must be real and seeing the smile spread across her face as we read the notes! My youngest daughter adored Adventure Santa. She spent each waking moment with him. She whispered how much she loved him as they went on their own adventures together. Capturing these moments of magic is truly priceless.
Some days involved big adventures like picking out our Christmas tree. Other days were simple and meaningful like buying toys to share with those less fortunate or making Christmas cards and reading our favorite Christmas books. It was such a wonderful way to connect as a family, spread good will and enjoy Christmas fun throughout the month of December.
