Apps to help children communicate with Santa Claus

From baking cookies to staying up all night long, it can be hard to help our kids deal with all of the excitement involving Santa Claus.

But now, there are apps that help us get in contact with the jolly man himself.

The first app is called "Call from Santa," where your child can get a specialized message from Santa. The second app is called "Video Call from Santa," in which children can chat directly with Santa. The third application is a Santa tracker app called "Santa Call and Tracker."

Santa Claus will pay a visit to FOX8 studios on Friday, Dec. 23.
