Santa’s Magic Key

Is your kid wondering how Santa will get into the house when you don’t have a chimney? The answer is as simple as Santa’s Magic Key. Tie an old-fashioned ornate key on your front doorknob and explain that it’s a magic key that only works for Santa. Check your local craft store for a key (we found one at Michaels for $1.50), or hit up Etsy for a handmade heirloom-quality piece like the one pictured.
