Today we went to Gardner Village to find the missing elves. If you haven’t been to Gardner Village, it is an old mill that has been revamped to be an old timey street with boutiques, bakeries, and shops.
During the holidays, kids can find the missing elves and receive a discounted cookie from the Naborhood Bakery. This was a good day activity, and even though it was really cold, we walked around looking for elves and ducking into shops whenever we felt cold. We didn’t buy anything, but there were interesting shops for toys and games, candy, and books, as well as a bakery and a restaurant.
We recommend this activity for those of you wanting to get out of the house for awhile. It’s a nice daytime walk with a goal to keep kids entertained. Best of all, it’s free. So grab and clipboard, pencil, print off the scavenger hunt, and have fun with the Christmas Elves at Gardner Village. Here’s the scavenger hunt. Oh, and wear some little gloves so all those little hands stay warm when they are working on their scavenger hunt.
They do this same activity in October, but with witches! And they also have a historic scavenger hunt
