Bass Pro Shops is making sure children don't miss out on the opportunity to visit Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas this year.

The stores are offering contact-less visits with Santa every day until Dec. 24.

Santa will stay behind a glass shield and kids will sit on a bench near him to have their picture taken. They will then step to the side and tell Santa what they want.

"Can you imagine a year without Christmas where every kid wakes up to no presents on Christmas morning? There is no hope there. Santa Claus helps bring hope. Christmas comes every year and that is when we celebrate all the important things and wonderful family we have," Santa said.

You will need a reservation to visit Santa. You can register on the Bass Pro website.

Children age three and up will be required to wear a mask.

Bass Pro said the glass and bench will be cleaned after each child visits with Santa.
