It’s that time of year when the kids all want to go see Santa, write him their wish lists, and track his route under the country. Tracking Santa can be hard if you don’t know how to find him, and it can be expensive too. But it doesn’t have to be hard or expensive! Here are 5 ways to get in touch with Santa…most of them won’t cost you anything!
Tracking Santa: How To Find The Big Guy
Write Him A Letter
You can get a super personalized letter from Santa that your child will love…and get a postmark from the North Pole on the envelope! And all it will cost you is a couple of stamps. Check out my post on How To Get A Letter From Santa With A North Pole Postmark for all the details. It’s so easy!
Give Him A Call
You can call Santa and hear a recording from him…you can even leave him a message if you’d like! I tried calling this number and it worked. It was a local number for me, but you can use it too. You can also Google to see if there are local numbers near you.
Watch Him Feed His Reindeer
Yep, you can watch Santa feed all of his reindeer at ReindeerCam.com. There’s even a Nice List that you can get your child’s name on that runs along the bottom of the feed. It’s fun to watch!
Get Super Personalized Letters, Videos, and Phone Calls from Portable North Pole
I love Portable North Pole and all of the personalized items you can get for the kids there. From videos that put them on the Naughty or Nice List, to letters and phone calls, and even official certificates that show that they made the list, Portable North Pole has it all.
Your kids can shoot Santa an emailed letter at EmailSanta.com (by simply filling in a few questions), and he’ll respond back immediately. My kids were so excited to do this! I think next time I’ll print out Santa’s response and leave it with our Elf on the Shelf Fred to give to them in the morning.
You can also ask Santa questions and he’ll respond to even the toughest questions at Ask Santa. You can also read through questions already asked – some of them are pretty funny! Kids love getting email…especially from Santa. This is free and fun.
Track Santa’s Journey Around the World
Right now, if you visit NORAD Santa Tracker, you’ll just get a count down for the days, hours, minutes, and seconds until Christmas. But on Christmas Eve, the kids can see where in the world Santa is!
There’s also lots of games, music, and videos to check out while you are there.
How else do your children have fun tracking Santa during the holiday season? If there’s something I missed, leave it in the comments below and I can add it in or link to your post!
