Make the Holidays Even More Fun with a Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt

My family and I always look forward to the holidays. We each love it for a variety of reasons. And we all get so excited as it approaches!

The change of season brings crisp, cold air to gulp down and enliven our moods. Usually, the first snow (or two) has fallen, blanketing our evergreens with a coat of white and inviting us to come out and explore.

So many exciting things to do! Shopping, wrapping, and trying to keep presents well hidden. Baking, cooking, and planning fun events.

Decorating occurs both inside and out, with old and new ornaments and lights to ooh and aah over. Captain, our oldest, morphs into our very own Buddy the Elf. He leads his brigade of elf brothers through the adorning of our home and yard. It’s such fun to have our family join together in such merriment!

And our holiday excitement extends beyond our yard! As we travel to and from soccer events and other extracurricular activities, we regale in the beauties of the season. All those glorious Christmas lights!

Traveling in our silver minivan (it’s not a sleigh, but a soccer mom needs her space!), the boys and I take note of all the Christmas light displays we see. We smile over old favorites and point out new additions.

Such a simple yet powerful activity!

When the boys and I are gazing upon all those glorious Christmas lights, we’re doing several things:

  • Paying attention to our surroundings (and not watching a video or on a phone)
  • Making observations
  • Discussing those observations
  • Breaking off into tangents about those observations (like, talking about the new Santa display down the street to wondering what type of circuits and such go into building something like that)

And most priceless part of it all:  easily turning a rather ho-hum event like driving into meaningful family fun (ho-ho-ho!)

If you want easy holiday fun with your family, plan on a Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt. You’ll be glad you did 🙂

As with most family events, keep your Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt simple.

Before embarking on your journey, go over a few rules and expectations. For our family, those rules include:

  • Talking one at a time (takes a bit of practice but very worth it!)
  • Everyone gets a turn at holding the clipboard with our printable Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt (using a clipboard makes it easy to record our observations and prevent its destruction)
  • All family members are encouraged to think about their favorite Christmas light and talk about it when our drive is done (or during dinner)

Depending on which boy is doing the recording and how long our trip is, we either cross out the item or place a dot (or tally mark) next to it. The latter option gives you a chance to chart multiple observations of the same item.

You can print out as many copies as you like of this free Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt. Some kids (and adults) like to have their own copy to record, make notes, and doodle on. Do whatever works for your family! And if you know of a family who’d enjoy this activity, please share this post with them 🙂

Have awesome holiday fun with your kids using this free printable Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt. Great way to build observation skills & get conversations going.
