In years past, parents would take children to see Santa around Christmastime. But this year, thanks to COVID-19, that may not be possible. So, we're going to look at some apps that can help you with keeping the magic of Santa alive even while at home.
There's nothing quite like taking your child to sit on Santa's lap and tell him what they want for Christmas. But even without talking to Santa in person in a store, they can still talk to Santa thanks to apps. There are a lot of great phone apps that you can download so that your child can text or speak with Santa and tell him all their Christmas wishes. The best part about this is that there's no long line and children who are shy and may not want to sit on his lap can still talk to him.
Now, maybe your child has called Santa or had Santa call them, and you want to take it a bit further. If you would like to show that Santa is real, you can use the magic of AR and an app to catch Santa in your house on Christmas Eve. This handy app also can be used for the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny, so you can use it year-round. Your child will have a photo of Santa right in your house so that they have a treasured memory.
Finally, there are plenty of books that you can read or listen to on apps like Amazon Kindle and Audible. Not only that, but you can find a lot of great television shows and movies that have to do with Christmas on many streaming apps. Disney+ Is a great choice because it has all The Santa Claus movies on there. And, there's a good chance that Freeform will be showing The Polar Express pretty soon. So, there are many options out there for Christmas shows featuring Santa.
