If you really want to capture the magic of Christmas Eve then what could be more exciting than actual footage of Santa's reindeer in your home! The little ones will LOVE it and it's easy to make and free too thanks to the Reindeer Ready website from McDonald's.
McDonald's has brought back its Reindeer Ready website for 2022. It allows parents to capture the moment Santa visits their home on Christmas Eve.
The site gives you the chance to film one of Santa’s reindeer eating from a plate of carrots in your very own living room, and show the clip to your children the next morning. It has proved to be a huge hit in previous years and is very simple to create.
To make a clip, you need to visit the Reindeer Ready website on your phone or tablet, select ‘Reindeer Ready Live’, and use the camera on your phone or tablet to scan the code on the screen to start creating your video.
You then need to take a picture of where you would like the reindeer to appear in your home, before editing it into where your children put out snacks for Santa.
The website will add in its own plate of carrots and the final clip will show the reindeer taking a bite from the plate of carrots.
Once you are happy with your creation, you can download the video to your phone to show to your kids on Christmas morning. I can't wait to see my daughter's face when she sees her video I have made for her!
