Track Santa & Learn Something With Apps

Google’s Santa Tracker App offers great fun for kids and for grownups too. It’s available for free in the Google Play Store or as an extension to Google Chrome for your browser. This seasonal treat offers games, maps, coding activities and, of course, the ability to track Santa!

The app offers an all-important countdown calendar to Santa’s arrival.

There’s also a holiday tradition test.

Just tap on a country to learn about its traditions.

You’ll also find a variety of games.

You’ll also find lessons about everything from cartography to coding.  

There’s an advent calendar that allows users to unlock rewards, but most importantly kids will be able to track that Jolly old elf come Christmas Eve with a combination of a sled’s eye view and Google Maps.

Microsoft also offers a Santa Tracker in conjunction with NORAD. I wrote about it last Christmas and it’s back in business with new features like Music by military bands.

Both apps offer you the chance to share via social media. I know these are designed for kids, but every Christmas Eve, you’ll find me tracking Santa, too.
