Today is the day that you learn to make your very own Santa Cam Ornament. And more importantly, get a few months of extremely good behavior from the kiddos.
What Does The Santa Cam Do?
In short, it is a round ornament that a camera lens has been attached to.
For example, it includes the words, Santa Cam, on the front to make it clear that this is how Santa is watching what I am doing.
But, you can optionally add a red dot to make it more similar to a real camera. I don’t think smaller kids will even notice that there isn’t one.
For example, the idea of a Santa Cam is I suppose similar to an elf on a shelf. Firstly, after making it is to hang the ornament on your tree. So, that it looks like an actual spy cam.
The way it works is, make sure to let the kids know since Santa can’t be everywhere at 1 time, this is how he will see if they are naughty or nice.
