Parents, behold — we might have just found the solution for a calmer and quieter holiday season in your house.
What is the one thing that kids fear the most on Christmas? Yes, you got it, not getting a gift from Santa, because they've been naughty. One genius teacher took this idea and turned it into a Santa Cam Christmas ornament. Okay, it's not really a "camera" — it only looks like one, but it's enough to make any little one believe that they are under Santa's constant surveillance. The result? "Lines in the hall have never been more straight and quiet," she says in a Facebook post.
Here's the best part: it's easy to make one at home! All you need to do is get stickers of a fake camera lens and then customize a tree ornament. Of course, you can also purhase the ornaments online and start enjoying the effect they have on your kids immediately.
Ahhhh! So when we listed our Santa cam, this is EXACTLY what we pictured happening buuuut this little one is like, a million times cuter than anything we could've imagined. @popnatural, it seems like everyone is getting sleighs for Christmas! 😂 You are the BEST, thank you thank you thank you for sharing!! 💕💖💖 • • • ps: Santa cam says "off" on the back so you can really use it to your advantage, parents! 🙈
