Santa HQ Is the perfect place to get into to the holiday spirit. It does not seem like Thanksgiving was last week or that it has already passed, I swear it crept up super early this year. Thank you to HGTV Santa HQ and Washington Square Mall for hosting us at the Santa HQ and sponsoring this post. All opinions are true to our experience at Santa HQ.
This is one of the years that it has been a struggle for us to get in the Christmas spirit, its the year I won’t have my 2 younger ones for the holidays. We had visited Santa HQ last year, (See my post -> here) and in October Isabella asked if we were going to go see “our Santa” again. I jumped at the chance to go again. It worked out perfect we went on Veterans day so grandparents and 2 great grandmas were able to go with us.
If you haven’t been to Santa HQ it is quite the fun set up in the mall as you can tell. You can tell how much work HGTV put into the Santa Hqs! We could see ours from both stories of the mall, the kids loved all the details they could spot.
We started out with the photo of all three kids! I love that they the photographer had the kids make hears with their hands for the photo. It was a favorite of all the grandmas, and we go Kylie to join in the shot as well.
Now the whole ride down to the Washington Square Mall Isabella and Kylie were teasing Michael that he would be on the naughty list. However, both Michael and Isabella made the nice list and loved seeing their names pop up on the screen.
Next, up the elfing room, Michael was the one who elfed himself. Micheal loved that he got his own Elf id emailed to us. I have to say I didn’t get a picture but Grandpa even elfed himself in this room, which made the girls laugh hysterically.
Next up was the Explore Elf-Ray Vision. This room was a favorite of Michael’s last year and it was fun again this year. They had a blast looking around the room with the tablets and interacting with the images. The staff was amazing helping Isabella when she struggled to get some of the images to work.
Santa was the favorite of everyone, including the grandparents as well!! I love that the kids were not rushed with Santa and that he was so engaging with them! The kids had fun talking with Santa and had so many laughs as well with him. I love that the photographer took so many great shots, my favorite was when he asked who was naughty and they pointed at each other!!
Have your kids visited with Santa yet?
