Five Fun Ideas for Christmas Magic

As a parent, one of the best parts 
of the Holiday season 
is seeing the magic of Christmas 
through my children's eyes.  
Here are Five Fun Ideas 
to help spread that Christmas magic.


1.  Magic Santa Key
   { East Coast Mommy }

Don't have a chimney or fireplace for Santa to use?
No need to worry, just hang this special key 
on your front door and Santa 
will have no problems getting in to deliver his presents.



{ Portable North Pole }


I've done this for my kids for the last few years 
and they absolutely LOVE it.
Remind Santa of a few facts about your child
and they'll be incorporated in a video message 
from Santa himself that is emailed to you for FREE.

Here's another way the wonders of technology 
help keep the Christmas magic alive.
With a quick photo upload and a few clicks,
Santa's elves will take a video of Santa delivering presents
in your VERY OWN HOUSE!!!

(I'm definitely doing this once our living room is decorated)

* NOTE: This video is not free, but there's a link on their homepage
where you can get $4 off, making it only $10



4. The Elf on the Shelf
{ here at Come Together Kids }


I shared a post last month about the fun 
we have with our Elf on the Shelf.
We're excited for him to make his appearance 
again here after Thanksgiving.



5. Rudolph's water and the Reindeer's carrots


Here's a little bit of Christmas magic 
that happens at our house every year.
Not only do we leave out cookies and milk 
for Santa in our living room,
but we leave some carrots and a bowl of water 
on our back deck for the reindeer.
All the Christmas Eve deliveries 
must make them hungry and thirsty,
because on Christmas morning 
we see that the carrots have been nibbled on
and Rudolph's red nose has tinted the water red.

(must be that food coloring Santa puts on Rudolph's nose 
to make it extra red and shiny for his special night;) )

  4. All of those are fantastic ideas! We love the PNP! We did it last year for the first time and R (at that time 3) was talking to the screen and it was so cute! We also always put out cookies and carrots. And last year it actually snowed on Christmas! In Alabama! It was crazy and unexpected and never happens! My husband was a sweetie and went outside and made a LONG slay track in the snow and some hoof prints. It was too cute. Oh this post got me so excited for Christmas!

  5. We did the PNP a couple years ago. Both my girls were nodding and talking back at the screen also. It's so convincing. My oldest is nearly 8 this year so I'm sure that we don't have much longer with her to have her excited about this stuff. Although Christmas is always magical no matter what age (I think).
