Tis the season to have the kiddos put on their cozy PJs, tuck em in early, make some hot cocoa and treats/cookies to-go, then scream, “everyone up, we’re going on a hunt, a Christmas Lights Scavenger hunt!!!”! This has been a long standing tradition in our family and with so many Holiday festivities and events being cancelled this might just be something we do a few times this year.
How it works:
1- Plan your route (see maps below for Sylvania, Toledo, Oregon, Waterville, Archbold, & SE Michigan)
2- Make or print off a scavenger hunt (see links below) and place on clipboards ($1 at Dollar Tree) with pens….small flashlights help ($1 at Dollar tree ;))
3- Grab travel mugs and fill them with hot cocoa & place cookies in a to-go bag
4- I like to have a fun prize at the end…Highlights Magazines! (Shhhh 😉
