Day 5: Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt (Easy Printable Tic-Tac-Toe)
When I searched online for a Christmas lights scavenger hunt, all the free Christmas printable activities were way too complicated for my children: 20+ items and all were written with words – and no pictures.
This easy Christmas lights scavenger hunt is great for younger children. Plus the cute Christmas clip art makes it perfect scavenger hunt printable for non-readers.

Day 6: Christmas Alphabet Activity
Alphabet knowledge is one of the best predictors for reading success. But learning the alphabet can be playful, fun and hands-on.
This Christmas lights alphabet black and white printable is great for several different activities:
- Match alphabet magnets or beads to the printable.
- Use dot stickers with the lowercase letters written on them.
- Call out the letters sounds and have your child use dot markers to mark the letters.
- Use like a coloring sheet and color with crayons.
It’s such a versatile free printable. Grab it in the post: Christmas Alphabet Activity.
