What Color Are Santa's Panties?

An unexpected question I recently had from my four year old :)  (green and red though amiright?)

This time of year brings a lot of questions about Santa Claus.  We teach kids not to lie…which contradicts with telling the story of Santa Claus for families that celebrate Christmas.  This article does a nice job of explaining the difference between “good” and “bad” lies as well as the benefit Santa and his elves have on kids cognitive development. 

Imaginative play helps bolster emotional development, creativity and reasoning.  So whether it’s Santa, fairies, the tooth fairy or something else—magic is a powerful gift to give to a child.   

How do you incorporate magic and imaginative play into your children's lives?
