About The Christmas Virtual Escape Room
Almost as soon as I posted the popular Thanksgiving virtual escape room, I had requests coming in for a Christmas virtual escape room. Virtual escape rooms are fun because kids (and adults) can work on their own or in groups to use clues to work through a series of puzzles.
My daughter discovered the world of virtual escape rooms last spring during the lockdown and has had a lot of fun making escape rooms for others to enjoy. It all started as a fun activity she created for her sister’s Girl Scout Troop to do, and it has become something she does for my website. So, of course, she set to work creating a Christmas Virtual Escape Room right away.
The Christmas escape room is geared toward elementary-aged children to complete but is fun for kids of all ages. It can be completed individually or as a team. It is also a great activity for students to do either via distance learning or in the classroom.
My daughter hopes you enjoy her Christmas Virtual Escape Room. She is already thinking about creating a New Year’s Eve Virtual Escape room if people are interested. (Be sure to leave her a comment on her escape room if you are interested in a New Year’s Eve escape room.)
Please take a moment to respond to the questions on the last page and be sure to hit submit. One unfortunate feature of Google Form is that it only captures responses if you click submit on the last page, and my daughter loves watching the counter go up on the number of people who have completed her challenge.
Note, to date more than 15,000 people have completed her Thanksgiving Virtual Escape Room, but we think the number is higher responses are not counted unless the last page is submitted.
Thanks for playing!

Hanukkah Virtual Escape Room
Because we celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah in our house to honor both sides of our family, my daughter decided to create a Hanukkah Virtual Escape Room as well. This escape room was designed to teach kids about Hanukkah, so it can be played by anyone who wants to learn a little bit more about how this holiday is celebrated.

When I add all the numbers (22, 16, 11, 19, 21, 10) I get 99. It says 105 and subtract the number you found = 6. It says the answer is incorrect?
Make sure you are reading ALL of the instructions 😉
How do I make one? I would love to learn how to make a virtual escape room.
My daughter is currently working on a tutorial to teach people how to make their own! Stay tuned.

I don´t know the answer to the riddle. What do I do then?
Can you find the correct answers somewhere?
We don’t provide an answer key, that’s part of the mystery 😉 But most likely you are over-thinking it or not reading all of the instructions about how to answer the question. (For example one vs 1.)
another person her hoping to learn how to make/design my own virtual escape room for my kids and their friends. Staying home is HARD but activities like this can make it easier. thank you so much!
This made me smile. Yep, she’s working on the tutorial, she will have it ready this month.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Free is great!

Doing this with my 6th grade girl scout troop today at our Christmas party – they loved the Halloween one!
So glad they are loving them!!!
Do you know time wise about how long it takes to complete the challenge?
Typically 10-15 minutes for kids.
Angie Melugin says
I love that your daughter created this and that she’s making it available for free! I’m using it with students and love that I can tell them someone close to their age created it. It uses so many great skills like problem solving, reading DETAILS, math, etc! I will be using it for 3rd-6th grades this week! Tell her great job!
-Angie (an elementary tech lab teacher!)
I will be sure to pass along your note, and it will make her day!! She’s having so much fun with this, she has a bunch more planned. 🙂

A Christmas virtual escape room is perfect for me right now, and I’ll start playing this game as soon as possible. I want to finish this escape room in record time so that I have something to be proud of.
Gina Kilday says
Super job!! My fourth graders LOVED them!! They were hoping the New Years one would be ready before school finishes. Any chance of that?
I am currently in shock that your kids are still in school! Unfortunately, she doesn’t have it done just yet. But she is close.
Julie Baker says
Please send me a link to make a copy I want to see how to make more for my 3rd graders.
Hi – my daughter will have a tutorial to teach available the first part of the new year. She is nearly done, but set it aside to finish her NYE escape room.
can I use this for my school christmas party?
YES! It’s great for school parties. And you can tell them it was created by a 12-year-old, kids love knowing it was made by a kid.
