Twinkle hunt

License Comments

Recently we delivered a package to our children just as the sun went down containing four golden and glittered tickets (printables I found on-line) to board the Polar Express (our truck) for a twinkle tour.

I have fond memories of driving through Saskatoon and along the river, looking at all the houses twinkling with coloured lights.

We had the children don their PJ’s and their coats, and head out to the truck. We had prepared a few snacks and headed to local drive-throughs to stock up on coffees, hot chocolate and donuts. Before we started, we also grabbed an ornament to serve as our prize to award to the decorated house that was the favourite of the children.

The biggest hit of our evening was the scavenger hunt that we had printed out and attached to a clipboard to add a little fun to our tour. We listed off the items we were looking for to the children and then had a blast shouting out the ones we saw on various houses and yards.

Here’s a list to get you started on your own scavenger hunt:

*A house with just white Christmas lights;

*A penguin;

*A snow globe;

*The word “Noel;”

*An angel;

*A tree with only blue lights;

*A Christmas train;

*A nativity scene;

*A house with at least five reindeer;

*Candy canes;

*A camel

*A decorated mailbox

*Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

*Disney Characters

*A yard with at least three inflatables;

*The Grinch;

*Blinking Christmas lights;

*Santa Claus on the roof;

*Icicle lights;

*Decorations that move or are motorized

We used a similar list, and the only ones we couldn’t find were the Grinch and the word “Noel.” Hopefully you can find them, and message us with their location, so we can finally be at peace! Our children are still talking about how fun the Twinkle tour was. It was definitely a night memories were made.
