PRINTABLE CHRISTMAS GAMES
About mid-December, when Christmas shopping has hit a peak and you have already made 16 batches of cookies, you might need to take a family break. Turn off everything for the night, say no to any commitments and do this fun activity as a family:
Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt
One of our favorite things to do as a family is look at Christmas lights. We try to go at least once a week, even if it is only in our neighborhood. We crank up some holiday tunes on the radio and “ohh” and “ahh” our way through the light show.
One fun thing we tried this year was a Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt. Using this fun printable, we had a blast identifying everything on the list. You tend to really take your time looking at the lights when you are also “hunting” for an object in them.
If you head out this Holiday Season to look at lights, here are a few helpful hints:
- Plan Ahead: Have an idea in mind about where you want to look at Christmas Lights. Many areas offer shows to walk or drive through and there are lots of private companies that put on “walks” too. If you are going to a certain neighborhood, make sure you have good directions on how to get there.
- Have a Backup Plan: What happens if you get to the area and it is packed with cars? Don’t turn around and disappoint the family, have an alternate place to see lights.
- Snacks: Pack some fun snacks for the trip – Christmas Cookies, anyone?
- Potty Breaks: Has everyone gone potty before you leave home? And if you have a newly-toilet trained one, pack your portable potty in the back, or know where some clean restrooms are that you can use.
- Music: Put on some fun Christmas Songs and have a sing-along right in the car.
Now get out there and make some memories!
