Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt Eye Spy Printable

Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt Eye Spy Printable

One thing many families love to do during the holiday seasons is drive around and look at Christmas lights. You might even go to a place where you can drive or walk through many light displays. You can add some extra fun in with this FREE Printable Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt.

Our family LOVES to stroll through the Christmas decorations sections of all our local stores. It’s so much fun to see what’s new and shiny, slowly adding to our collection.

Each year towards the end of October we gear up to prepare the front of our house for Christmas. However, we don’t turn them on until Thanksgiving weekend. (Since we live in a colder climate, we like to get our lights up when the weather is still manageable!)

Ideas for using this Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt

There are many fun ways to use this list, below are a few suggestions to get you started:

  • You can use one list as a family. Either head out in a car or walk a neighborhood and play Eye Spy together to find the items on the list.
  • Or each person gets their own list and silently fills it out. This too can be done via car or a walk.
  • Invite other families to join in! Go out in teams with an agreed upon  time limit and see which team gets the most points.
  • We actually used this one year over the course of a month while watching Christmas movies. Simply enjoy watching your favorite Christmas movies and see how many of these you can spot in the process! Click the images below to find tons of Christmas movie suggestions!

Setting some Rules

You may want to set up some guidelines to keep everyone on the same page.

For instance:

  • If taking off in vehicles you’ll want to be sure the driver is doing just that, driving. And encourage everyone to follow all traffic rules.
  • If heading out for a walk you want to be sure younger children stay with a buddy at all times.
  • Then you might want to consider whether or not you can earn only one point per house or if you can get multiple points from one house? It doesn’t matter which way you do it, except that everyone needs to follow the same rule.
  • Along those same lines, if you can get multiples per house, will you allow multiples per item?
  • If you want to add an element of proof to the hunt there are a few ways to go about it. Consider taking photos of each element, maybe even have a team member in some of them! Or have teams write down the address where each item was found. If you’re doing the hunt while watching Christmas movies, write down the movie where you found each item.
