It's a big decision to determine what you want for Christmas, and sometimes serious toy store contemplation is required. Then there's the mystery of how Santa Claus always knows just what to bring (which he solves below in a special message just for kids). Good little children can think over their potential present options as they search for Santa in a crowded toy store with this free printable Christmas game.

When you're ready to play, you can enlarge the image on your computer screen and start the fun right away, or you can download this free printable Christmas game as a PDF and play anywhere. It can even keep kids occupied while you're shopping!

Santa says: How do I know not to bring you the same toys your parents are giving you? I visit toy stores and watch what people buy!

Toy stores are almost as busy as Santa's workshop at the North Pole, and kids are always getting lost there. First, try to find Santa Claus. Then see if you can find the lost children.

Think you know where everything is now?

Then please help the lost children find their matching parents:

  • Bobby the Kid's dad
  • Mini-Muscles' dad
  • Drummond Bugle's dad
  • I. Wright Ticketts' mom
  • Lil' Topknot's mom
  • Mona Lisa's dad
  • Chuckles' and Giggles' parents
  • Presto's parents
  • Hi Long Leggs' parents

Didn't find everything you need at the toy store? Santa Claus is off to the shopping mall next. Continue to the next page to see if you can find him there.
