  1. loved this so much I shared it on my Facebook page and profile page. I also pinned it on my printables board on Pinterest!! So fun!

  2. This is great! What a neat idea to keep the kids busy on the ride around town.

    We always go out a few times looking at all of the lights around town.
    I think I love it more than my kids do.

  3. Do you get bonus points if you find them all at one house?

  4. OK I love this idea! Local to us we have a road of beautiful houses that go over and above with Christmas lights. We already did our tour up and down the road this year. But we may have to do it again with this print out in hand! Thanks for such a FUN idea!

  5. Ahhh! A couple days too late, we just went around the neighborhood this past weekend looking at lights, but I am definitely printing this one out, finally got ink, and will take the kids again, thanks for the printable!
