McKinney Mommas: Mom’s secret weapon this holiday season - PLUS $1.000 Shopping Spree entry! Google+

Thursday, December 8, 2011 Mom’s secret weapon this holiday season - PLUS $1.000 Shopping Spree entry!

Our kids these days are doing just as much internet research as we are, and often times shopping for toys and games online as well. How would you like your kids to be able to make their Christmas wish lists for Santa online, in a safe and controlled environment and also be able to use these lists to share with family and friends!

At Santa's Hideout, parents can create an account for each of their children, setting a budget for their Christmas Wish List items, and also have an option to block items you don't approve of.

One FUN feature, is that you can send “letters from Santa” to the kiddos. "Santa" can encourage them to create a wish list, work hard on that math test next week, share with their siblings, and even remind them to add something for their teacher or friend to give as a gift. The Santa Mail section also has suggested topics, to make it fun and easy on mom and dad this holiday season when our minds are running every which way!

(Kid's VIEW)

I set up my own account to see how the website was running, and had a great experience. Setting up my own account was easy breezy. I even wrote a letter to my daughter from Santa (she can't read yet...but HEY she got her first letter from Santa Claus!)

This is a fun way of creating some extra HOLIDAY MAGIC for your kids, and at the same time makes it easier on your holiday shopping, since you'll already have your kiddos Christmas Wish List right at your fingertips!  Plus, the kids will have so much fun corresponding with Santa online, and remember you are able to see and control all the content they see; so it makes for an all around fun and safe shopping holiday shopping experience!

As an added bonus, when you sign up for an account you can opt to enter a $1,000 Shopping Spree giveaway. I sure did!
