The Christmas season tends to be a bit crazy for us.
I mean, it’s crazy for everyone, but December is non-stop family fun for our crew.
It kicks off with my birthday on December 5th, followed not only by St. Nick’s Day, but also my son’s birthday on December 6th. Then, in addition to all of the Christmas shopping, baking, and other holiday festivities, we celebrate 3 more birthdays this month.
(And we’re a family that goes all out for birthdays, so needless to say…it’s crazy!)
Amidst all of the family gatherings, we have one tradition that we’ve enjoyed for years that is just for our family.
If you have never done a Christmas light scavenger hunt, this would be a great year to begin!
A Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt couldn’t be easier to do! Using some of our favorite decorations our family has seen, I’ve put together a printable you can use to enjoy this with your family.

Each year, after celebrating my sister-in-law’s birthday on December 23rd, we hop in the car and swing by the nearest gas station to grab some hot chocolate.
My kids take their scavenger hunt worksheet and pens, and we’re off!
We love driving around our town with Christmas music playing on the radio, looking at all the beautiful lights. It always amazes us how much time and talent goes into creating these displays. It can be truly magical!
So, decide which night works best for you, and make sure you are also prepared with a list of neighborhoods that might have the best light displays.
Print out one Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt sheet for each kid, grab some clipboards and hot chocolate, and see how many unique Christmas lights you can find.
Don’t Forget the Prizes!
To add to the fun, I let my kids know that there is a prize waiting for all of them if they can spot everything on their list. Who doesn’t love prizes?
It’s usually just something small like a pack of gum, candy, or a small toy.
If you have older kids who can drive themselves around, you might split into teams and have a little Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt competition going!

We love this tradition. It’s one of many this holiday season, but it’s something special and fun for us.
I hope it is or becomes a fun tradition for your family as well!
