Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt

Every December we load the kids up in the car and drive around our town to check out the Christmas lights, but this year I wanted to spice up our tradition, so I made this Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt game.   We’ll drive around town and check things off the list as we spot them.

You could divide up into 2 teams and make the scavenger hunt a contest, but we’re just going to out as a family, list in hand, to spot things together.  We do have the rule that you can only find one item per house though.  Once our list is all checked off we’ll head home to discover hot cocoa and cookies for our prize.

Just for fun, we’re also going to search for “the best decorated yard,” “the funniest decor,” and “the coolest street in town.”  Our own little Lightsy Awards if you will.

{We’re not going for a few more days, but I’ve already been scoping out the neighborhood!  I’ll be the best Christmas lights scavenger hunter ever!  Shhh!  Don’t tell my family!}

Here’s a link to the printable if you want to go on your own Christmas lights scavenger hunt.  Hope you have lots of holiday fun with your kiddos.  And check out our Holidayopedia for tons more holiday fun for your family.  We’d sure love for you to come follow us on social media too.  We share not only lots of great holiday ideas, but also tons of ways your family can learn and play together.   Hope to see you there!

  1. My daughter is having a Christmas sleepover. This is going to be one of the activities that we are going to do. We are splitting the girls into teams, going in 2 cars on 2 different sides of town to see who can find the most off of the list. Thanks for making this available. Merry Christmas!
