The Shepherd On The Search: Finding Christ In Christmas – Review


The Shepherd On The Search – Activity Set Review

This year, my family is making a concerted effort to slow down and commemorate the birth of Christ – the real reason that we celebrate Christmas. We’re looking for ways big and small to share the love of Jesus.

We’re packing groceries for the hungry. We’re filling shoe boxes with toys for boys and girls in Mexico. We’re joining our church family in worship, celebration and song.

And – within our home – we’re helping a shepherd find his way to the manger – the place of the Christ child’s birth – as we take part in a new Christmas tradition called The Shepherd On The Search!

The Shepherd On The Search is a new Activity Set from Dayspring that brings all of the wonder and joy of the first Christmas into our homes. Inside of each Activity Set you’ll find the following items:

  • A 9 x 9 Storybook, The Shepherd On The Search, which tells the story of the angels who visited the shepherds thousands of years ago and brought them the good news: a Savior had been born!
  • Your personal, plush 9.25” shepherd, who is waiting for you to name him and join him on his epic search for the Savior each Christmas season.
  • A Nativity Keepsake Box that opens into the backdrop of the Nativity setting in Bethlehem and the scene of the manger – your shepherd’s final destination!

You’ll want to pick up your Shepherd On The Search Activity Set as soon as possible so that you’ll be ready for the start of the Christmas season. It’s so easy and so much fun to participate!


Each night, when no one is around, simply hide your shepherd and – each day – share the story with your children and watch their faces light up as they search for him!

Be sure to chronicle your shepherd’s adventures each day as he moves closer and closer to the manger.

On Christmas Day, he will arrive at the manger to worship Jesus – and throughout the season, your family will be blessed as you focus your holiday on the miracle of Jesus’s birth!

Does this sound like a tradition you’d like to start with your family? Be sure to share your thoughts and ideas in the comments!

    Looks like a fun and meaningful Christmas tradition! A great alternative to Elf on the Shelf. My kids and I used Adorenaments every year when they were younger. Thanks for linking up with Literacy Musing Mondays.
