Gift Idea: If this is the year that your child figures out Santa’s identity, consider starting the “special secrets club.”
When he let’s you know his discovery, swear him in to this special club. Make up a special handshake or pinky swear to agree that he will keep the secret from all younger children who haven’t made his discovery. Make a big deal about being part of the secret and having the fun of being part of the special club. Make sure he understands that being in the club doesn’t change any of the fun and gifts you have planned for him. Instead, it doubles the fun because he can help with all the secrets for everyone else.
