Don’t despair that your kids will miss their annual visit to see Santa, because this year, kids can visit Santa virtually.
Christmas is upon us. This year it’ll be different because of the Coronavirus. While adults are learning to live a life that’s different than normal, this time of year it’s extra hard. Not only is money tight for so many but going to visit Santa in person may not be safe. (At the end of this post I’ll share some ways parents can earn a little extra spending money.)
This is How Your Kids Can Visit Santa Virtually
A personalized virtual visit with Santa Claus is so much better than an in-person visit. Mall Santa can be confusing for kids. They often can’t understand why Santa isn’t at the North Pole preparing to fire up the sled.
There is usually a big chair where he sits, and some sort of decorations. But this virtual Santa? It’s so much more realistic.
Can’t wait for you to check these out! Your kiddos will flip.
There are different packages from which to choose and they are all seriously cool.
“One of the most enchanting memories of being a child is a visit with Santa. Given the difficulties that life has thrown at us this year, many children simply won’t get to see Santa.
That’s where Santa’s Club comes in. Personalized virtual visits with Santa from the comfort & safety of home. You pour the cocoa, we’ll provide the magic. The lasting memories will follow.”
This is really pretty affordable. You can spend just $20 and get a fun personalized video from the big guy or his wife.
Claus Clip is a personalized 60-90 second video greeting from either Mr. or Mrs. Claus! What does a good Claus Clip request look like? Try to be as specific as you can. Let us know who the recipient of the Claus Clip is, what your relationship is to them, and why they’re getting this video! Help congratulate them on a recent milestone or even have Santa tell them they need to tidy up their room!Chit-Chat With Santa
You can expect this video visit to cost $34.95.
The Experience will take you through 5 magical scenes guided by Elf Pickels before your live video chat with Santa which will be 5 mins. The Experience will be approximately 10-12 mins in duration.
There are several different packages from which to choose so you can get the one that’s right for your family. Phone calls, videos, family group visits, and more. Prices here are $24.99 to $99.99.
You have to be a Sam’s Club member and have a photo account.
After your visit, they will email you a link to download a shareable digital photo and video of your virtual visit with Santa.
Choose which Santa you want, including this fun Santa puppet. The prices vary, but that’s a good thing because you may be able to catch a deal.
For those with some extra cash this year, you should take a peek at this one. Straight up, it’s expensive. (Too rich for my blood!) It costs between $100 and $750. Holy jingles, Batman.
As promised, here are some ways to earn a few bucks from home.
