Does your family have a tradition of driving around to take in the holiday lights and displays near you? The tradition of viewing holiday lights is fantastic because it can be as simple as a few strands here and there in a neighborhood, or it can be an all out commercialized event. I am lucky enough to live within a reasonable driving distance of multiple theme parks, massive residential communities who have Christmas spirit, and smaller cul-de-sac displays where multiple families get together and sometimes even have a full time Santa this time of year.
With Christmas headed our way before you know it, I wanted to share with all of you these super fun kid friendly Christmas light themed activities to enjoy. I have put together this list of over 15 of my favorite Christmas light themed family activities and crafts for you…
