Kids can see Santa's reindeer in your house Christmas morning with handy photo trick

Leaving treats out for Santa and his reindeer on Christmas Eve night is one of the longest-running family traditions around Christmas.

Now, kids will be able to see the magic of Santa's reindeer in your house on Christmas morning.

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.
