4. Add Padding: Ever seen a slim Santa? No, right. Add padding underneath your kid’s outfit and secure it firmly around his weight. Make sure it does not make the child uncomfortable.

6. Add Spectacles: Santa is an old man and he wears spectacles at the end of your nose.

7. Put on a Hat & Gloves: Complete your look with a red hat and white gloves because of course it is cold outside.

Last but not the least, make your child practice saying ‘ho, ho, ho’ in Santa Claus’ manly voice. For competitions you can also teach your child a Christmas poem or write him down a story associated with Santa Claus. This Christmas 2018 dress you child as a perfect Santa so that he wins a prize at school’s fancy dress. We wish you and your children a Merry Christmas.
