I love our Santa's Enchanted Workshop. It comes alive when we have it filled with Santa and children, but I also love to just sit with all the pretty lights and enjoy the sweet detail pieces we've collected over the last few years. We're always, ALWAYS looking for unique items to add to Santa's treasures. We've found so many beautiful items that add to Santa's story. Our favorite stops are antique stores, estate sales, garages sales, Hobby Lobby, Home Goods, World market...and the list goes on. I'm super picky about what we bring in. These are probably my very favorite cherished treasures, Santa's Reindeer Calling Bells. Santa shares these with each child that visits with him. He explains the various size bells offers a different tone and each reindeer recognizes the sound of their bell. When he wants a particular reindeer, he rings their bell. If he wants them all, he rings them all at the same time.
After hearing the story about the reindeer calling bells, each child has the chance to peek into Santa's pack. There is a gift for each of them, an authentic brass reindeer calling bell. Santa tells them to stand on their porch on Christmas Eve and ring their bell. This will let the reindeer find their home easily. Such a fun new tradition to add to their yearly celebration. I love that he introduces them to a new tradition they can cherish each year and I love that we are there to capture it forever. I hope they will pass it along to their own children one day.
