Create a new favorite family tradition with a Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt! Do you have memories of driving around looking at Christmas lights as a kid?
My family and I would load up in the car, drive a distance from our home to a neighborhood so lit up it could be seen from an airplane. Each yard was full of Christmas lights and a page from a story book. My memory doesn’t recall what the story was, but I enjoyed stopping and reading every page.
Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt Printable
Unless you live WAAAAAY out in the boondocks, chances are, you could find all the pieces of this scavenger hunt in your neighborhood or one near you!
We walk around as a family and search for the best house of the year. My husband is pretty obsessed with Christmas lights, so sometimes our house wins. 😉
This is a printable download, but you could simply take a screenshot of the download and mark it off on your phone.
We have included some of the holiday staples like a gingerbread man, Santa, snowman and snowflakes. Feel free to add your own marks too! We used to have a neighbor who hung up a flying pig every year before they moved… I am sad we don’t get to add that to our list this year!
More Fun Christmas Light Ideas
When the kids were younger, we would practice our counting skills by counting how many houses had Christmas lights, starting the day after Thanksgiving. It is fun to see the number go up most nights as we get closer and closer to the big day!
Now they are very proficient counters and while I’m sure we will still count Christmas lights, this printable is going to be a fun surprise for them too!
Another idea is to rate the houses. Find your favorite one. You could do this by taking pictures and then rating or just talking about what you all remember.
