Make at least two teams of kids and each team will be asked questions related to Christmas and for every right answer they will get one hint flag. The hint flags will give clues to the team as to where the Christmas stockings are located. The more hint flags won then the most chance of more Christmas stockings found. The team that gets the most Christmas stockings wins the prize while the losers will also get some consolation prizes.
