10 fun activities to do with your kids at The Lights of Christmas

Can you believe it’s November already? If you are anything like me, you are frantically getting ready for Thanksgiving and planning the perfect Christmas gifts for the kids!

Like most moms, I’m a planner. I plan what activities my daughter will do before I go to work. I plan what healthy meals my family will eat and prep so they’ll actually eat them. I definitely plan out every holiday activity.

For all those moms who want to plan a great experience at The Lights of Christmas, here’s a list of my top ten activities you can do with your kids!

    First, and foremost, you have to see the beautiful light displays and watch the wonder on your kids’ faces. I mean there are over one million lights creating stunning scenes you and your kids will love to look at.
  2. Pony Rides & Petting Farm
    Does your kid love animals? We have pony rides available for the youngsters age 6 and under, and the petting farm available to everyone.
