My little brother Sam, who is 5, was so excited to find out he was getting chance to take part in a virtual Santa experience earlier this week. As our Mum has been shielded we haven’t been able to see Father Christmas in real life this year so being able to do it safely at home was a real treat.
Mum said the Santa session was really easy to book, she just had to choose the time that suited and then send a message that she wanted Santa to give Sam.
The session started with Santa telling the story of The Night Before Christmas and while he chatted to all the children watching, then they did a song with a virtual sleigh ride that Sam enjoyed joining in with and then Santa had special messages for each of the children. Sam was so excited when he heard his name. He didn’t know Mum had sent a message in and he sat up very straight and listened very carefully when it was his turn. He loved being spoken to directly by Santa.
There were some games on the screen to keep the children busy while the others were having their messages read and these were perfect for Sam’s age group, he enjoyed doing them and was able to do so without help.
We thought Santa was very jolly and the experience was just right- long enough to keep Sam’s attention but not so long that it gave him time to get restless and we loved the personal element.
If you are looking for a Santa Experience that is completely safe then we think the Wonder Adventures virtual experience is perfect for kids age 3 to 7. They also offer several other Christmas themed experiences that look good fun too if you are looking for something a bit different or have already seen Santa.
