Scheduling a visit
Making the Most of a Visit
Ideally, the children have been prepped with some sort of magical atmosphere. The parents have put on Christmas music for the last hour or so and have baked some cookies to decorate! Perhaps a Christmas movie has been put on and the children are in awe and can feel the magic of Christmas.
Then, all of a sudden, there's an unexpected knock at the door. It's Santa Claus! He comes in with (whatever the parents have hid out by the garage in a garbage sack) for the children. Pictures are taken as children are called up one by one to tell Santa what they'd like for Christmas. Perhaps Santa has brought Twas the Night Before Christmas with him and reads it aloud! The children ask questions, "Where are your reindeer?" "How do you get around the world in one night?" and many more. After a few laughs, perhaps a few Christmas songs are sung (Rudolph is a fun one!) and if the parents wish, Santa can close with leading everyone in Silent Night to remember the reason for the Season. With that, the old elf departs and reminds everyone that he'll be back on Christmas Eve.
A visit from Santa Claus will be as magical as YOU prepare for it to be.
