Christmas Fun Online…

I know I am busy… There isn’t much time left before the big day. There is still so much to do at my house. One of the most difficult things to do is keep the kids busy while you do your to-do list. Here are a few sites that may help with that…

http://www.noradsanta.org/en/index.html – This has a little Santa Village and each day they add a new game. My seven year old loves the games. I lost track of how long he was on this site yesterday and I am sure it was over an hour – bad mommy! Anyhow on Christmas Eve they will start tracking Santa’s team. Here is the direct link to the village with the games http://www.noradsanta.org/en/countdown.html

http://www.northpole.com/ – You can get printables here, send santa a letter (and he will write back), do crafts, and lots more. There is even a place for teachers and homeschoolers.

Online Coloring: Color this picture of Mary and the manger online and print or print the page and color with crayons. (Flash)

Here are two games my three year old enjoyed:

Christmas Bells: Make music with the Christmas bellsDress Up Elves: Two little elves to dress up for Christmas. (Flash)

SHHHH….This is one for your eyes only…
You can take a picture of your living room, upload it to the site, and then add a santa. Show it to your kids Christmas AM so they know Santa was there. This one is not free… but for 9.95

http://portablenorthpole.tv/ This site asks you a few questions about your child and then produces an adorable video where Santa personally welcomes your child, congratulates him/her for being well behaved and hints at what special treat might be under the tree Christmas morning. It’s the personalized Santa Claus letter for the digital generation. I just did one for my kids and it turned out so cute. Make sure you upload a picture of your child.
