This year, we purchased the Shepherd on the Search kit. It is similar to Elf on a Shelf. But instead of an elf reporting to santa what your kids do. This little guy hides around the house looking for the Baby Jesus during Advent.
Each day there is an activity to do with him and it all ties into the story of Christmas. Some of the activities include helping others at Christmas or ways to celebrate the birth of Christ.
Here are some of the spots our shepherd, Vennie looked for the Baby Jesus.
But of course, on Christmas Day…
Here is some of the activities he joined our kids in doing.
And finally, his message to us all.
