Have some family fun driving around and looking at Christmas lights just got more fun with this free printable Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt.
Whether you live in a warm climate or one where a white Christmas is a real possibility. Spend a fun family evening doing a Christmas light scavenger hunt!
The sun is setting earlier and earlier these days – not great news. The good news is (and we love good news!) – darker evenings mean more time to explore bright, festive, holiday lights.
Like all of our MWH free printables, our Christmas light scavenger hunt is easy to follow and guaranteed to bring the HAPPY! But be warned, it may just get the whole family caroling all the way.
Making Spirits Bright
Much like a regular scavenger hunt, this Christmas light scavenger hunt will have participants cruising neighborhoods looking for fun and festive Christmas decorations and displays. Our printable has tons of different categories to look for from toy soldiers to snowflakes to Santa and his reindeer. You could say we’ve made a list for you to check twice!
There aren’t many activities that can satisfy the whole family, but our Christmas light scavenger hunt is guaranteed fun for babies, big kids, tweens and teens (maybe?). Gather your scarves, make a steaming thermos of hot chocolate, and pack some candy canes for a night that may become one of your family’s favorite Christmas traditions.
Hunt with Friends
This is also a great idea for families who would like to socialize this holiday season but are practicing social distancing. You could head out in separate cars or walk 6 feet apart.
Another fun idea is to make it more of a competition. See which families can find more items on our list. If you can all “hunt” on the same evening, see who can find the most items in a certain amount of time. Or, if you can’t find a good night for all, set parameters on which neighborhoods you can visit and let the competition last the whole season!
If you want to keep the competition in the family, you could split up. Have one parent or adult take one kid (or kids) and another parent or adult take the other kid (or kids). Meet back at home and share your lists!
Just because it’s getting colder and darker, doesn’t mean you have to stay inside. Our Christmas light scavenger hunt may be just the thing you need to kick start your holiday spirit. With blow up characters, lights that blink to music and even fake snow, Christmas displays have certainly come along way over the years. Get out and applaud your neighbors’ hard work with our HAPPY (and free) family activity!
