Enlarge the image below and play it on the monitor. Or, download this free Christmas printable game as a PDF to find these Christmas gifts.

On the 1st day of Christmas my true love sent to me a partridge in a pear tree.

On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love sent to me

2 turtle doves,

& a partridge in a pear tree.

Kringle's Nursery was having a sale on partridges in pear trees. But where do you suppose my true love found two turtle doves? (What is a turtle dove, anyway?)

After you find the birds, see if you can find these funny items in Kringle's Nursery.

  • Peter Piper and his peck of pickled peppers
  • George and his cherry tree
  • A lemon that is not a fruit
  • Pretty powerful mistletoe
  • Two squirrels who are nuts
  • A family tree
  • A pumpkinhead
  • Eve and the apple
  • A shoe tree
