Growing up, my family never put up an outdoor lights display. We were just not that creative. Or ready to brave the cold for the sake of a light up Santa. But on the night of Christmas Eve, we always drove around to check out all of the neighbors’ Christmas lights (and there were a lot of them). In the name of trying to keep the holiday stress to a minimum, we still don’t put up lights but my kiddos do love our annual outing to see what other people have created.

A scavenger hunt can make your holiday lights tour into a fun and interactive adventure! Work together to find all of the items on the list, or allow siblings to engage in a friendly competition and see who can check them all off first!

Here’s one we’ve created or make up your own! Happy hunting!
