5 Ways Your Kids Can Talk To Santa
With the holidays right around the corner, your kids are probably very excited about helping to decorate the Christmas tree and composing a letter to Santa about what they are hoping to receive this year. The day after Thanksgiving is when we decorate the tree, and our Elf on The Shelf named Fred has been out since the week before Thanksgiving. The kids have been on better-than-normal behavior, and have been excited to talk to Santa anyway they can. The excitement of the season is in the air, so today I’m sharing 5 ways that my kids will be checking in with Santa this year!
Portable North Pole
Your children can get a fully personalized video message directly from Santa Claus as he sits in his home at the North Pole! The Portable North Pole allows you to send a video from Santa to your child for FREE! You answer a variety of questions specifically about your child (like whether he is on the naughty or nice list and what behaviors he needs to improve on) and include a picture. You are then emailed a link to a video for your child. It’s that easy! There are other video options and other personalized options to choose from, however they do cost.
The Santa Video
Upload a photo of your Christmas tree and have a video of Santa walking around your tree to show the kids. The Santa Video allows you to do just that – however for this one you have to pay a one-time fee of $14.95. You can share it with family and friends, and it’s a good reminder throughout the year that Santa is watching.
Santa Claus Naughty or Nice List
Need a letter from Santa? The Official Santa Claus Naughty or Nice Listis fast and free! You type in your child’s name and you can automatically print a letter from Santa. You can also print out a NICE certificate from Santa verifying your child has been nice.
Norad Tracks Santa
Norad Tracks Santa allows your children to see what Santa is doing from December 1st until Christmas Day. You can see where he is travelling as we get closer to the big date – if you look at it right now you’ll see a countdown (down to the second!) to Christmas. It’s a fun site that we check every day.
How to Get a FREE Personalized Letter From Santa With A North Pole Postmark
As a child, I remember how much I LOVED getting a letter from Santa. My mom used to get us those cheesy ones on cute Christmas paper “personalized” with our name on top. We were always amazed to see a postmark saying the letter came straight from the North Pole. I wrote a post on my blog about How to Get a Letter From Santa Postmarked From The North Pole. There’s even a link to download some really cute Santa stationery for free!
