BusyBees is one of our favorite indoor places to play, so when it was announced that Santa would be making a stop there, I just had to get tickets. The kids started out playing in the playground when Santa made his grand entrance playing the bagpipes! It was such a fun surprise! I was so impressed with this Santa, who had a very detailed costume and a real beard! How authentic! Then he gathered all the children around him for story time.
Santa performed a few tricks like making snow and Olaf the snowman magically appear, which was a big hit with the little ones. Then it was time for each of the children to have their individual visits with Santa.
To make the experience even more magical for the kids, BusyBees sent a questionnaire to the parents in advance of the event to gather information about their children. So when the children sat down with Santa, he knew special things about them like their pets name, favorite Christmas gift from last year, teachers name, etc. When it was Mae’s turn with Santa, she wasn’t sure about sitting next to him at first. But then Santa knew that she loves to sing the alphabet, so he asked her if she would sing to him. She happily agreed and climbed onto the bench next to him and sang the Abc’s. It was quite the sweet moment!
Busybees definitely put their creative party planning touches into this event with the cutest hot cocoa cart. It paired perfectly with the Chick-fil-a chocolate chip cookies and made for a festive and kid approved snack break.
There was lots of extra time for fun in the playground. Mae must have gone down the slides at least 50 times.
She also spent a lot of time in the room full of flying balloons. It’s pure joy in here! The giggles are everything.
If you haven’t yet been to BusyBees, take a look a this post I wrote with additional info. And parents, trust me you will love the extra long nap your child takes after spending a morning at BusyBees!
Santa and Mrs. Claus are visiting BusyBees one more time before they head back to the North Pole on Tuesday, December 22nd from 1-3pm. The event is already sold out but there is a waiting list if you are still interested. Next year remember to snag your tickets early for this super fun event!
