The countdown to Christmas can be nerve wracking for any parent. If your little ones are waiting not-so-patiently for Santa Claus to show up, Smutty has a couple of great activities for you to distract them. After all, humans aren’t allowed to swat their young one to the ear when they are annoying.
First up, Reindeer Cam. This is a great site that integrates with Facebook and shows live footage three times a day of Santa coming out to feed the reindeer. And you can submit your child’s name to the “nice” list and have them wait for it to scroll across the screen. Should buy you 15 to 20 minutes of quiet time. If you are on the go at feeding time, there is an iPhone and iPad app as well as Android and Windows 8 apps available.
Next is the Santa Tracker from NORAD. It is available in several languages so is great for nearly everyone. Check out the promo video below.
Last but not least is the North Pole where all of the Christmas action takes place. There are stories, printable coloring pages and activities to keep young humans busy for hours. You can even spread out the fun over several days by only choosing one building at a time to focus on. Easy to navigate by choosing a building that tells you what it is from the workshop to the mailroom.
Smutty wishes you and your furry and non-furry families a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
