My family loves driving around in the weeks leading up to Christmas to look at lights. I pack the kids in the car in their pajamas, a blanket, and a warm drink. We drive, listen to music, and take our time appreciating all of the beautiful decorations that neighbors put out. A few years ago I started using a scavenger hunt as a way to keep them engaged and to avoid hearing the dreaded “I’m bored”. I’ve included images for non-readers and text for older kids. Feel free to download or screen grab this page for your own kids. You can adapt it by running a tally to each item– how many blow up Santas will you see? Which item did you see the least of, etc.
So much fun!
