I'll admit, I wasn't quite ready to embrace the Christmas Spirit but after visiting the new Pop-Up Picture This Christmas at Trolley Square today, I'm ready to embrace it ALL! The kids loved all the activities and I loved all the Christmas music! Each area was a fun, different Christmas theme. 

We've shown a few pop-ups on The Salt Project, and while Picture This Christmas is a much smaller scale, it's filled with super interactive fun. 

Of course, everyone LOVED the ball pit!

The kids all took turns writing their Christmas Wishes on the wall, with a permanent marker (which made it all the more cooler!)

You can also pick up a scavenger hunt before you enter! The kids thought it was super fun to play some I-Spy. 

Jumping on huge presents, okay, this was SUPER fun for kids. 

I love all things vintage, so this room was extra cool and it's fun to look at all the different record covers. 

Speaking of vintage? Does this not take you back to Christmas at your Grandma's House?

Complete with a Black and White TV! 

I even have some of these bubble lights that my grandma gave me. 

This was our favorite picture spot for sure. Pretending to be in a snow globe was super cute and everyone LOVED throwing the snow. 

Fun fact, this globe was made by the same company that made the globes in Jurassic Park! 

Be sure to stop by the Ugly Sweater Photobooth! 

Plenty of hilariously, ugly sweaters and hats to be worn. 

You can even write your Santa Letter in your ugly sweater! 

Complete with a mailbox to drop your Santa letters in. 

The phonebooth was hilarious. The kids thought it was super cool to listen to Santa Claus. Little Aiko got super nervous and was like "wait, is it really him?"

Our kids loved the Felt Wall too! In fact, this is an awesome idea, maybe it would help with all the kids who keep messing with the decorations on a real Christmas Tree. 

One could only hope. 

Last but not least, the kids LOOOOOVEEEDDD the Snowball Room! 

The snowball room is partially glass, so you kind of feel like you are in a snowglobe. I'm sure shoppers walking by wonder what's going on! 

I'll admit, even the adults loved throwing the snowballs! 

The kids seriously LOVED Picture This Christmas and are asking to go back again.

Helpful Tips

No bathrooms inside. 

Plan on at least 30 minutes or more. 

Don't let your kids jump into the ball pit, it's more shallow than you think.

You could go and visit Santa at Trolley Square too! 

Have fun!
