Holiday Lights Guide and Scavenger Hunt Printable!

One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is to go look at Christmas lights! If we only did one Christmas-y event the whole season, hands-down it would be looking at Christmas lights. For me, it’s one of those moments that really capture the Christmas spirit – watching our kids “oooo” and “ahhhh” as flashing lights and colors dance across their faces. It’s spreading the joy of the season and dwelling in the gift of family.

Every year, we put the kiddos in their Christmas jammies, pop some popcorn, grab a thermos of hot cocoa, and load everyone into the car (listening to Christmas carols, of course!). Then we start our grand, pre-planned tour! Oh yes, I choose a handful of locations to see and plug them into Google maps so we have a route ready to go. Although we never end up hitting every house on our list, it’s always a memorable time. This year, we’re adding some extra fun to the mix and have created a Holiday Lights Scavenger Hunt! Can you find a house with all of Santa’s reindeer? A penguin? Only white lights? Click the image below to download the scavenger hunt and see how many you can find!
