FAVORITE Christmas tradition is our Shepherd On the Search! Do you know about this?! It is the Christ-centered (WAY less creepy) version of the Elf on the Shelf. You can read all about it in THIS POST.
I gathered up my favorite ideas on how to pose your Shepherd On the Search each day leading up to Christmas. These ideas are super easy and lots of fun. And don’t worry, you will not need elaborate props or a ton of time because the best ideas use the stuff that you already have! That is how I like to roll.
Here are the ideas!
December 1 (ARRIVAL)
The Shepherd arrives and brings Advent Calendars for the boys! Last year the boys got the Tsum Tsum calendars because they are obsessed with collecting Tsum Tsums. This year they will get chocolate calendars.
The Shepherd cooking breakfast. 🙂
All stacked up in a tower of toilet paper rolls in the bathroom.
The Shepherd made a snowman out of the matchbox cars.
The Shepherd was caught making a birthday card for Jesus.
Hiding in the glass cabinet.
Cooling off in the fridge.
Working out with his elf buddy. We can do all things through Christ who gives us strength!
The Shepherd wrapped the boys’ snacks for school in Christmas wrapping paper.
Styling some of the family’s best footwear and walking in His ways.
Fixing his eyes on Jesus this Christmas.
Jesus heals all of our hurts! Also bandaids are so much fun.
Channeling the Easter season.
Hoping someone will free him before the morning smoothies.
Because every bathroom needs a toilet paper snowman.
Reminding the family how sweet it is to trust in Jesus.
Reading the Christmas story to a group of friends who really get it.
Winning at Tic-Tac-Toe.
The Shepherd wrapped up the boys’ bedroom door while they were sleeping.
Decorating the bathroom mirrors with ribbons.
Following that star. Literally.
Head first in his favorite morning cereal.

The Shepherd brought wrapped Christmas pajamas for the boys to wear on Christmas Eve.
Made it to the manger and found the Savior!
I definitely know what it’s like to crawl into bed, start drifting off, and then suddenly jolt awake in a panic because you FORGOT TO MOVE THE SHEPHERD. When you are tired like that, you need inspiration, so I hope these ideas are helpful!
This will be our 3rd Christmas with our little Shepherd On the Search and I can’t wait to see what tricks he is up to this year!
