The countdown to Christmas has begun! 🎅
Whether you love to follow Christmas traditions by watching where Santa’s flying on the Christmas Eve Santa tracker or you want to start the fun a little early by playing festive games and watching his reindeer live, we’ve got a few totally free ways you can see what’s happening as St. Nick prepares for his big night!
Watch the NORAD Santa Tracker on Christmas Eve.
When Christmas Eve has started around the world, you can hop on over to the NORAD Santa Tracker and watch Santa deliver presents live! You can follow him as he starts in Asia and builds the anticipation all day long as he nears the United States!
NORAD offers this free service every year and has even been known to provide an escort for Santa from time to time. The Santa Tracker will even tell you how many gifts Santa has delivered so far on Christmas Eve (and it’s a lot!) So cool!
As a parent, I even love watching the Santa Tracker! Every year it makes the night feel so magical and once Santa makes it to our state, it’s a great excuse to get the kids to bed since they can see for themselves how close Santa is getting!
Play free games at the virtual North Pole to pass the time until Santa’s arrival!
The Christmas magic has already begun over at Santa’s virtual North Pole. While we wait for the much anticipated Santa Tracker, come Christmas Eve, your kiddos can head here to play free games at the Arcade, listen to Santa’s favorite songs, learn more about Santa’s magic sleigh, shop for NORAD & Santa gear at the Gift Shop, and so much more!
Best of all, there are new games released every single day in December at the virtual arcade so your kiddos are sure to stay occupied with these fun Christmas activities.
Or watch Santa’s reindeer live on the Reindeer Cam before the big day!
If you’d love to check in on Santa’s reindeer as well, head on over to Reindeer Cam where you can see Santa feed his beloved flying reindeer from 9AM to 5PM MST. You can also check out videos from previous dates, including videos of Santa reading classic Christmas stories!
My daughter is 4 1/2 and is totally fascinated with this live feed and loves watching it! It’s really so cool to see his reindeer just doing their thing and they’re real live animals so for any kiddos who are having trouble believing this year, they need to see this!
Plus, younger kids will also enjoy Google’s Santa tracker & free Christmas games all December long.
Just launched on the Google homepage, now there’s another fun & totally free way to follow Santa around the world! Plus, while you’re kiddos aren’t counting the number of gifts being delivered on this Santa Tracker, they can also play from a huge variety of free games!
From dressing your own elf to 14 levels of Santa code labs – there are tons of free games and activities to choose from and something for every kiddo to enjoy!
