Kids can see reindeers visit their house this Christmas with simple trick

From visiting Santa to watching the elf on the shelf cause mayhem – there are lots of traditions that make the festive season magical for children.

This year it could be even better as little ones will be able to watch reindeers from the comfort of their homes.

After the popularity of its Reindeer Ready Live Technology in recent years, McDonald's now confirmed it's re-launching the technology to make the final countdown to Christmas all the more special.

To be a part of the magic all parents need to do is learn how to work the technology, as you have to be over 18 to take part.

You can download the app on the McDonald's Reindeer Ready Hub, but you need to use a phone or tablet, as the technology won't work on a desktop device.

All you need to do is choose a room and take a picture of the spot where you want the reindeers to appear.

The reindeer will then pay a visit to the house to enjoy some treats, and the kids can see all the magic happen.

To take part you'll need to agree to the T&Cs, and wait 30 seconds for the video to load, but within minutes you should see a reindeer pay a little visit to the family home just in time for Christmas.

The reindeer app will be available from McDonald's until Christmas Day, but it's not the only bit of festive magic the food chain will be offering this year.

This is because UK stores are also offering limited edition "Reindeer Treats", which you can bag for 99p to leave out for festive visitors on Christmas Eve.

McDonald's also worked with ex-footballer Jamie Redknapp to put together a Christmas audio book.

Redknapp narrates The Perfect Christmas List, which tells the story of a boy called Alfie who realises the best thing on his Christmas list is simply being able to be with his loved ones.

He said: "As a dad, I know how hard it can be getting everyone in the car at Christmas, but spending time with the family, wherever we are, is the most important part of the holiday for me, and anything we can enjoy together is always welcome.

"I hope the McDonald’s festive audiobook brings a few smiles on those long drives coming up."
