Christmas Escape Room 

santa-claus-2927962_640 (1).png

Take your youth or small group through this series of ten escape room challenges, written to make them as easy to set up as possible. 

The Escape Room was written with 11- to 18-year-old youth and students in mind, but can be used with older children or adults. It's primarily aimed to be fun, but could be used to lead into a talk on Christmas.

Everything else you need, you will probably have already e.g. wool.


I'd love your feedback, and if you want to submit your time, we could get a leaderboard going!

You can download for free two of the ten challenges for this Escape Room. Advertising JPEGs, full instructions and Powerpoints for both online and in-person versions are only £5.

See two sample challenges here.

Designed by Tim Robbins, Dave Thornton, Hannah Elphick and A Little Elf.
