It’s time to make the list to see who’s naughty or nice and take the kids to see Santa. This year we headed to Queens Center to check out HGTV’s Santa HQ. Andre was excited to speak to Santa & get that long list ready!
First stop after we checked in, was at the Naughty Or Nice O’Meter. Magically kids names will appear on either side based on how good or bad they’ve been this year. Hmmm Andre’s name wasn’t on either so does that mean Santa hasn’t decided yet? With his behavior report in school, I’m sure Santa has a lot of thinking to do! LOL
Everything today is technology based, so of course a visit with Santa would include an app. It’s free and is available in the app store & Google play. I highly suggest downloading it prior to your visit. We had some spotty WiFi issues at the mall so it took some time to get it downloaded. Once we did, Andre pointed to the specific spots to get a sneak peek at what the Elves are up to.
Then we headed inside Santa’s studio to have some Elf fun with the Elfie Selfie station. Snap a selfie & create a holiday video of yourself as an Elf!
While waiting to see the big guy, Andre enjoyed a quick stop on Santa’s couch & caught up on some HGTV.
There were some last magical surprises to be unlocked with the app. It really was one of the best parts of the experience. It definitely will keep smaller kids occupied if lines are long.
The cutest couple ever! I’m thankful that Andre still believes too.
