Selfie with Santa

Dress up as Santa, or an elf, or a reindeer and sneak into their room and snap a selfie while they’re sleeping. On Christmas day, display the photo and write a special note, like “I didn’t want to wake you up, but Merry Christmas!”

Let it Snow

Buy fake snow and while the kids are sleeping, sprinkle it in their room or throughout the house. If you don’t feel like cleaning up the fake snow later, you can also hang snowflakes from the ceiling. If you want to go even further, crank up the air conditioner. When they wake up, they will feel like they’re in a winter wonderland.

Get the whole family a new set of Christmas pajamas. It’s a beautiful tradition and everyone can wear their new set of pajamas on Christmas Eve. The pajamas don’t have to match, but waking up on Christmas Day, wearing a new set of clean and comfy PJs will make anyone’s day.
