An AR Advent Resource
Using the iconic gingerbread house, we have created six Augmented Reality games. Each game is linked to an activity which relates to a symbol of the nativity story which is listed below. Once you have completed each game you will be given part of the animation story to watch.
Game 1 – play the first eight notes of Hark The Herald Angels Sing. This unlocks a short animated video about Angel Gabriel.
Game 2 – locate six gifts that are randomly placed around the gingerbread house in a set time. This unlocks a short animated video about Mary.
Game 3 – find 9 pieces of wood to build a manger within a set time. This unlocks a short animated video about Joseph.
Game 4 – feed each sheep a bale of hay within a set time using an on screen joy stick controller. This unlocks a short animated video about the shepherds.
Game 5 – follow the star and when you located it tap on it. How many times can you find it within a set time? This unlocks a short animated video about the wise men.
Bonus Activity – watch the short animated video about Jesus with the spoken word taken from Isaiah 9: 6 – 7. This unlocks a bonus activity where you get to throw snowballs at a gingerbread person in a set time.
Once you have explored all of the above games and videos, you can go back and watch the full animation by clicking on the button in the main menu.
