Christmas brainteaser: Help Santa find his hat!

Christmas, Family, Activity

Posted by Kate A on 27th November 2020

After a busy year in the North Pole, Santa’s elves have finally got all the toys wrapped and loaded onto his sleigh, ready to be delivered to all the good boys and girls on Christmas day. The snow is beginning to fall, and Rudolph and his reindeer friends are all harnessed and ready to go – but oh no, where’s Santa’s hat? 

It seems one of those cheeky elves might have accidentally wrapped it up with all the other presents!


Around the country, excited families are hanging their stockings, donning their cosiest PJs, and leaving out plates of crumbly mince pies for Santa and carrots for his reindeer in their festive holiday cottages. What is Santa going to do?

It’s down to you to solve this tricky Christmas brainteaser and track down Santa’s hat so he can make his magical journey through the night sky and down all those chimneys! 

On average, it took all of us at 1 minute and 3 seconds to find it – just enough time to play a little ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree’. How long will it take you?
