12 Days of Christmas - Day 11

I think one of my favorite parts of being a parent at Christmas is playing Santa. This will be a fun and exciting night in many people's homes. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and want to leave you with a few ideas (from to leave evidence that Santa was really there. Because, isn't the whole idea to get the kids to believe in the magic of Christmas?

And of course, don't forget to track Santa on the Norad site! So fun!
  1. Of course, eat the Santa cookies. Leave plenty of crumbs!
  2. Take a bite out of Rudolph's carrot.
  3. Make Santa's boot prints with soot from the fireplace.
  4. Make reindeer hoof prints on the driveway or pathway with dirt.
  5. Leave a North Pole snowball in the freezer.
  6. Leave special cookies or homemade fudge from Mrs. Claus, in place of the cookies that were left for Santa.
  7. Tear off a piece of Santa's "Naughty or Nice List" with your child's name in the "Nice" column.
  8. Drop an elf's business card on the floor with an appropriate toyshop job description.
  9. Leave a personalized letter from Santa under the Christmas tree.
  10. Drop a small pouch with lumps of coal by the fireplace. Attach a tag with a child's name on it. Don't put your child's name on it. Say, "Santa must have dropped this for another kid. I guess he does leave lumps of coal for the naughty ones!"
Merry Christmas! And don't forget the reason for the season.
