Christmas is one of our favourite times of year – we love the lights, the presents, and the festivity. Today we are sharing a Christmas Scavenger hunt with you, to help keep the kids busy on their walks through their neighbourhoods this year. The focus for this Christmas scavenger hunt is the lights that you can see on the walk, alongside some of the other decorations that people put out during these festive times.
How to take part in the Lights Christmas Scavenger hunt
The printable that we have given is complete with checklist for you, as you can see…
We have loads of different items for the kids to look out for on their travels including:
- Candy cane,
- Wreath on the door,
- Peace sign,
- Toy soldier,
- Teddy bear
- Reindeer on the roof,
- Christmas train,

- Snow globe,
- House with red lights,
- House with blue lights,
- Mrs Claus,
- Gingerbread man,
- Giant present,
- Joy Sign,
- Dancing lights,
- Puppy, and
- House with gold lights.
There is such a lot to spot for them – so print it out and away you go.
How to do this Christmas scavenger hunt at home
If you are stuck at home (and we know that some of you are), then why not set up this scavenger hunt indoors! All you need to do is click on the links in the above, and we have managed to find a picture for you for each of these items. They aren’t lights BUT you can print them out, and hide them in your homes for the kids to seek out. We’ve managed to find simple pictures for you for all the options above to adapt the scavenger hunt for indoors…
Isn’t this a lovely idea for a bit of Christmas Scavenger hunt fun, without getting quite so cold! Make sure you make note of where you put the pictures for the kids, and you can give them instructions as to how close they are particularly for the younger children by saying they are “hot” or “cold” with the objects you are looking for.
It is also a good idea to sometimes split them into sets of six, so that they aren’t trying to find too much all at once!
