I was introduced to iCaughtSanta.com last Christmas. I love the idea behind it- it keeps the magic alive for kids.
If you aren’t familiar with it, it allows you to have a picture of Santa “caught” in your house!
All you have to do is upload a picture, then add Santa, then share! You can print it or post it on your blog, on facebook, or on twitter, too.
I was going to scan in the one I did last year(because our tree isn’t going up until today- we’re being Christmas slackers this year), but then I went to their site and saw that I could enter my email addresss and they sent me a link to my picture- even a year later. LOVE that!
There are 20 different Santas to choose from, so if you want this to be a tradition, you can have a different Santa in your picture each year.
You can rotate Santa and change his size to make him fit your picture. One thing that I wish I had noticed last year is that you can change the brightness of Santa, too. Good thing my kids are young and didn’t notice the contrast between the background and Santa. But, this year, I’ll be sure make him match the background a little better.
You can also edit your picture by rotating it or zooming in. If you’d like, you can add a border.
Last year, after the kids were asleep, we set out the presents a few days before Christmas to take the picture and then sent it to print at a store. Though, you can wait until Christmas Eve and print it at home, too.
Our Santa pic was under the tree for my boys to find. They were so excited to show us that Santa had been in our house!
You can also create picutures where you catch the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and Cupid!
