After Holiday Scavenger Hunt


December 26, 2011

ENJOY THOSE HOLIDAY DISPLAYS

top image

The time with kids after the holiday can be a little daunting.  Everyone is off schedule, we're all hyped up after the holiday crazy and the kiddos are looking for something to do.  Get them excited with this after holiday activity that still helps to enjoy everyone's hard work decorating!  A Holiday Light Scavenger Hunt.  

This is how we did it.

We left THIS note on our girls pillows.  They were SO EXCITED.  They had no idea what we were doing and were equally as thrilled to know that our DOGS were coming with us.  We figured, it's in the car so why not!

Then we bundled up in the car with our goodies and set off on a holiday light display scavenger hunt.  Complete with our favorite holiday carols the girls checked off their list one by one!  We had a GREAT time and guess what?  It was free, save for the gas.  

Here is the list that we used!  Click HERE to download and print one yourself. 



Have your say

thanks for sharing!! my family and i just did this tonight, and we had a BLAST!! considering my brother and I are both college students and we did this with our parents i would say that is a huge success!! i'm honestly a little surprised we had such a great time with it. i can definitely see this becoming a tradition! i'm not sure where you're from but we could NOT find a dolphin, we were kinda scratching our heads on that one lol :)
