Christmas is almost here! We are finishing up our last week of school then it’s 2 weeks off for the holidays 🙂 I am so ready!! I cannot believe that we are nearing the end of this fun lead up to Christmas. I want to share a few fun things you can do with your kids involving SANTA!! All of these are fun, some cost money and some are free. I’m trying to do everything I can to keep my daughter ‘believing’ in Santa. Even though she’s young and just in 1st grade some kids at her age have older siblings and they are starting to spread the Santa rumors 🙁
Isn’t this the sweetest Santa picture? This was my baby girls first time with Santa at 3 mths old. I thought it was adorable!
One of my favorites that we do every year is visit the Portable North Pole (PNP). This is now an app that’s free to download. The not free part is something that is really cool. You can Create a personalized video for your kids from Santa! There are several choices but a 5 min video is $3.99. There’s also a new option for Santa to make a personalized phone call to you! It’s also $3.99. I think we might do both this year. I keep telling myself my daughter won’t ‘believe’ much longer. I have to keep this spirit in her going! To check out the Portable North Pole website visit here
Reindeer Cam is a fun website you can go to and watch Santa’s reindeer live. Click here You can send a Letter to Santa or even get on the “nice” list! It’s fun to just check out the reindeer!
Another fun site is the Santa Tracker Site Here you can play games, visit the North Pole, and more! There’s also the official Santa Tracker the tells you how many days/minutes are left until Santa Comes. Super fun.
Make a personalized letter from Santa! We do this every year too. I have my husband write it and we save them. It’s super cute!!
This last one is something we’ve never done but it looks really, really cool! It does cost $$ but basically you upload a pic of your tree to the website, choose a Santa and they do the work for you. You will get a photo sent back with Santa at your house! Check it out here
Enjoy this time with your Family!
