7 Top Christmas Apps for your Kids

NORAD Tracks Santa: Keep your kids informed about the state of Santa’s operation with this handy app. No one wants to be left in the dark, wondering if their presents are going to arrive on time, that’s why adults like to track their deliveries—well why would kids be any different? They deserve the peace of mind that comes with seeing jolly old Saint Nicholas going on his rounds come Christmas eve!

How the Grinch Stole Christmas: The creators of this app have taken the classic Grinch story by Dr. Seuss and turned into an interactive read-a-long that’s perfect for new readers. You can read without narration, listen to the build in voice over, or record your own—whichever way you decide to read, it features original art from the classic book, and added interactive elements to increase the learning potential.

Frozen Free Fall: This game can eat up a nice chunk of time thanks to its addictive puzzle gameplay, plus the Disney Frozen theme is sure to be a hit. This game is huge, and the winter theming goes great with the holiday season, but in particular they’ve updated the game with a few Christmas levels.

Charlie Brown Christmas: If you’re like me you have fond memories of the Charlie Brown Christmas special, and this app is a great way to pass those experiences on to a new generation. The app features all the classic characters and music, but puts them in a more interactive package fit for the touch screen experience.

ElfYourself: This silly app lets you put your face on a dancing elf. If that isn’t compelling enough of a reason to try it out, you should know that you can choose from many different dances, put up a custom greeting, and share the results over social media. Or perhaps this would be more convincing: you can also turn your household pets into dancing elves. Try it out, just take a break once in a while—it’s hard to breathe when you are giggling this much.

12 Days of Christmas – Polk Street Press Singalong: On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…it’s hard to keep track of all these gifts sometimes, but with this app, you’ll have everything you need to record a singalong of the classic carol and show it off to the family. The gorgeous custom art help to make this app experience really pop.

Santify: With this app you can combine your own face with a nice selection of Christmas characters, from Santa to Scrooge, decorate yourself with silly adornments and effects and turn the resulting face into a festive, interactive 3d model. It’s one of the nicest photo booth apps on the app store, and is great fun for the holidays.
