10 reasons to take your kids to see Santa at Westfield this Christmas

He’s made his list, checked it twice and he’s about to find out if you’ve been naughty or nice – so come and visit Santa with your wish list for lots of festive fun!

Hi, friends! The countdown to Christmas is on, and guess what? Santa is coming to your local Westfield Centre! So come on down, give him a big friendly welcome and tell him all about your Christmas wish list!

Christmas fun has never looked better at Westfield, thanks to local centre events like The Grinch Christmas Show and A Christmas Dream Show, plus entertainment for the whole family, an amazing Christmas wonderland, festive parade, and joy from Santa's elves and other special performers.

Once Santa arrives in centre, he will be on his throne until Christmas Eve, so you can pop and see him before the big day!

November will be our last Monty Mornings with Lego DUPLO for 2018, so don't miss out!

There really is something for everyone at your local Westfield this silly season! And of course, it wouldn't be a party without face painting, balloon twisting and me your mate Monty the Monkey!

It's a great time of year to bring the kids to Westfield so I've put together a list of reasons why you should. Scroll down to see!

1. Give Santa your wish list
Make sure Santa knows what your kids want for Christmas - and let Santa knows if your little ones have been good or not!

2. Family pictures
If your child isn't at school yet, they aren't getting school portraits yet so a yearly Santa portrait is extra special. It doesn't just have to be the kids - Mum and Dad can join in the pictures too for a whole family portrait!

3. Get Nana's gift sorted while you're there
Looking for the perfect gift for the grandparent who has everything? A picture of the grand kids on Santa's knee of course!

4. Monty Mornings – have a coffee break
Parents, come and enjoy a free* coffee while your kids have some messy, interactive fun at the Kids Club.

5. Join the Kids Club
Join my club and you'll get super-cool free gifts, including a gift when you first sign up, LEGO birthday presents and a chance to enter heaps of awesome competitions. I'll be hanging around too and can't wait to see all my Kids Club friends for lots of fun.

6. Make some Christmas crafts
Get crafty with me, Monty the Monkey at the Kids Club and make some Christmas crafts to decorate your house with.

7. Involve the kids in the shopping
Help your kids get in the spirit of giving by helping them pick out presents for family members - don't forget to have them sign their name on the card!

8. Last minute shopping
Maybe while Mum is taking the kids to see Santa, dad can sneak off and grab those last few Christmas presents. Remember, Santa will be there right up until Christmas Eve!

9. Christmas shows
We're hosting loads of fun family-friendly Christmas shows. The Christmas elves and I can't wait to see you!

10. Start a new tradition
Christmas Pavlova, putting the star (or the angel) on the top of the tree, waking up really early to see what's in the stockings - why not add going to see Santa to your family's list of Christmas traditions?
