Did you know that Gardner Village has a Witch Hunt for children 12 and under, similar to the Elf Hunt at Christmas? They’ve placed witch statues all around their “village.” You can get a list of certain witches to keep your eyes out for. If you find them all, you get a cookie for cheap (35 cents!) at their bakery.
We take the kids every year and have a BLAST! The kids enjoy running around, looking for all the cute witches. Our favorite is the “Witchy Poo.”
Here are some hints from times past to make your hunt easier:
1. Wear good walking shoes. You literally cover the whole village! (there’s usually one down by Archibald’s so make sure you take a visit there)
2. Dress appropriately for the weather since you’ll be outside. Gloves are great if it’s cold because you do a lot of writing, and your fingers get frozen!
3. Bring a clipboard for writing on.
**Gardner Village has many fun activities this time of year–for both kids and adults. Go here for more info.
And mark your calendars for December, when the elves come visit!
