Visit & Photo with Santa
December 22, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Wednesday, December 22 | 10 AM – 11:30 AM
You better BELIEVE Santa will be here just days before Christmas! Come on down to Pretend City to sit with Santa, tell him your final holiday wishes, and have a jolly time with other families and friends!
Purpose Behind the Play: Imaginative play, social and emotional understandings, expressive language, and literacy
Grown-up Tip: Some children love Santa, while others can be dubious about meeting someone new. It’s okay if your child is a little hesitant and unsure about Jolly ‘ol Saint Nick! It’s a wonderful moment for you to be supportive of your child’s feelings. You can prep your little one by setting expectations for what’s to come – “I will be with you the whole time and if you want me to go with you to hold your hand, I will.” If your child is still hesitant, you can say, “I see that you are not ready to sit with Santa. We can wait until you’re ready!” or, “we don’t need to take a photo with Santa, we can just wave from here!” This way you are allowing them to process and make decisions that respect their feelings.
