4. NORAD Santa Tracking:


This App is fun for kids that want to track Santa’s journey leading up to Christmas, You can check out what’s happening at the North Pole, countdown to Christmas as well as play games and read stories.

5. Elf on the shelf:


For $60 You can get the “Elf on the shelf” from most leading stores like Myer. This has been a tradition in our house hold for 4 years. The kids love waking up in the morning and finding the elves in different spots. They especially love when the elf gets into funny things like the cookie jar. The Elf on the Shelf stays in during the day monitoring the children’s behaviour and reports back to Santa once they have fallen asleep and are back before they wake up in the morning.

I hope these little Mum/Santa hacks keep your tiny tribe calm and nice through the next few weeks. Oh, did I mention THE EASTER BUNNY IS “BEST FRIENDS” AND “WORKS” FOR SANTA! I know I’ll be bringing out some of these hacks leading up to Easter haha.
