My kids love fun ways to count down to Christmas. After all, being 6, 7 and 10, this is a long month waiting for those presents and the fun that comes with our family celebrating Christmas together. We do the Advent Calendar with them, but I love to try to always do something new with them each year. Hallmark has some fun new items we tried out ourselves!
This is a fun one! You set the date and time on your microphone. Then, each day, your kids can “dial up” the North Pole and get a message directly from Santa’s Workshop. When my kids did this, their faces lit up – they thought it was so awesome! As a mom, what I like most about this is that next year, we can purchase a new cartridge to swap out and will have an entirely new season of daily messages for our kids. That makes this an item that isn’t the same from year to year, but can always change.
This item sells for around $24.95 at most stores.
I actually love this one most of all – because it made me laugh!! This is a North Pole Adventure map – complete with goggles. Each of my kids put on the Goggles and made me chuckle at how adorably silly they all looked!! Of course, I forgot to grab my phone (#momfail). The map itself provided fun things for my kids to do with a maze, stickers and more activities. My two younger kids sat down and played together quietly for more than an hour with this. I think they need to rename it MAGIC Polor Explorer Goggles & Adventure Map.
This item sells for around $12.95 at most stores.
