Holiday Online Activities {Reshare}

In the past, we have posted about various holiday and winter themed websites that we have found. I thought that I would just put up a quick post with links to these sites. These sites are really cute and add a little something special to the day. I have also added a new one for those that have read our previous posts!

 Northpole.com  is a cute site with a "Secret Santa Village" housing activities, craft ideas, recipes, and more. There is even a Disco Dancing Santa!

The Norad Santa Tracker is a classic. The tracker allows kids to track Santa as he visits children around the globe. They can keep an eye on his trip as he gets closer to their home. There also are some cute videos from around the world. 

On Claus.com, parents and kids can find more cute holiday activities. Kids can go to "Elf School" and meet Santa's reindeer.

With the Reindeer Cam, kids can watch Santa's reindeer. Sometimes, Santa makes an appearance.

If you are looking for the history of all things holiday, check out the History Channel which has plenty of materials to read and videos to watch.

Storynory has readings of a number of Christmas stories. You can also translate the text into many languages.

The Museum of Science and Industry has quite a collection of holiday traditions around the world as well as sections on Hanukkah, Diwali, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, and Chinese New Year.

Have a great Christmas Eve and enjoy the time with your family!
